Post 523: You call that a snow?

It happened. Snow last night! I woke up around 11:30 and checked.

Such as it is, it's wet, white, and on the ground.

The boys were really excited I was up during their part of the day, and especially when I opened the door. If you think the photo above is marginal, wait till you see the photos (heavily Photoshopped and cropped, granted) I took in the dark of the boys! I didn’t know if I’d get anything recognizable, but the little Nikon point-and-shoot’s capacitor built up a nice charge for the flash while the infrared focusing beam painted the dark with an eery red ray. Seconds passed before it took the photo, but they turned out to be recognizable photos of Andy and Dougy!

Dougy parked between my feet while I made the photo of the snowscape above.

Dougy, again.

The question came up about the boys and snow. It happens the video archive has several examples of Andy and Dougy experiencing snow:
