SNOOOOOOOWWWW!!! (for 10 minutes)

We all woke up SUPER excited this morning, beyond our usual 'yay, it's Saturday!' excitement - because we were supposed to get our FIRST SNOW OF THE SEASON!!

The headline in the local paper read

"Lawrence braces for snow"

(although if you read the article you would see that we were only expecting 2-4")

The snow was supposed to start at 9 am. We rushed out to the grocery store to stock up, thinking we might be home all weekend. We got home around 9:30 just as the first flakes began to fall. We jumped around excitedly as more flakes fell. We made plans and checked our snow gear and had a snack.

And then the snow turned into sleet, then rain.

And then it stopped.

All we got was a dusting! We were so sad :(

Oh well, we're bound to get some snow sooner or later.
