I Just Saw My First Real Snowflakes Of The Season!

It's so much different here in South Jersey during the winter than those upstate NY winters of old--we always had school--even when it snowed feet upon feet (which it did all the time without stopping every day...for months...and months...until the snowbanks were huge and you couldn't walk in the backyard without falling into a white abyss of snow...from october until may...seriously).
But here...here in South Jersey I can celebrate the first flakes...cause we never see very many of them and they never last for long and winter is so short here...
It's all about trade offs--horrible traffic/awesome climate.
Sometimes you just have to be thankful for the little things.

My kids went nuts at the first sight of the snowflakes. You can't blink, though, or it is over before you know it :) I grew up in NJ, but I seriously think we had more snow when I was little than now.

I was so excited when it started snowing yesterday. But, sadly, New Jersey winters don't compare to winters in New England either :-( But we'll probably see snow at Thanksgiving and I'll probably get my fill for one winter

Dad and I seem to remember more snow-ness back in the day. I just love the cold and snow!
