So, it turns out that snow can fall in Cincinnati. Yesterday morning I woke up and mocked the city for closing schools, as there was only about an inch of snow on the ground. However, throughout the day the snow continued to fall and the ice arrived late afternoon. By nine last night most schools were also cancelled for today.
Our neighborhood has been a flurry of shoveling, snow blowing and sledding. Addison now thinks that sleds are the coolest things (next to Mommy) and seems to love playing in the snow...although she was 100 percent not amused by making snow angels and looked at Grandma, Aunt Nikki and I like we were crazy when we laid her down in the snow. Didn't we know that stuff is COLD? Here are some pictures of our first (real) snow in Ohio and Addie's first time playing in it.
Sledding down our front yard. It's barely a hill, but it thrilled Addison!
This is looking out our kitchen window at the backyard. Those are the same berries the birds were feasting on last earlier in the week...now they're a frozen dessert, perhaps?
