Sunday Snow

Woke up this morning and noticed that it was much brighter outside than it has been, lately. And not in an "Oh. Look. The sun is out." way, but in a late-November "It's cloudy out, but it seems kind of strangely bright white." Yeah. You guessed it. We got snow last night.

Our last snow came down on a day when we were predicted to bounce back into the 40s, so we knew it wasn't going to last. But I saw a forecast last night that keeps us below freezing for the foreseeable future, which means this stuff isn't going away until sometime next spring. This is normal, of course, in the last few weeks of the year in Minneapolis. However, that does not make it any easier to deal with when the realization sets in. 

I'd suspect that getting dressed today will be followed by clearing the sidewalks of an inch or so of light snow. Then we'll dive into the next great adventure of the season: trying to pick up a few essentials at Target on a Sunday during the Holiday season. 

Or maybe I could stay indoors at home with a little more pie...
