We awoke this morning to discover this outside:
It continued lightly falling for a few hours. I'm guessing that by 10am there was about 2 inches/5cm on top of the grill. A lady from church called to tell Beth that this isn't normal (we've been hearing that about all the weather since we've moved here, it seems). Indeed, the meteorologist said that there's never been snow on April 2 before in the Greater Vancouver Area. By lunch time it was starting to melt, so Anders and I decided to take advantage of the nice spring snow:
Anders' snow angel
Tubing down the hill behind our house (we didn't have any sleds with--heck, we had to dig through the winter Rubbermaid tub to find stuff to wear--so we used the Spiderman water ring; it worked well).
The ducks didn't seem to mind too much.
Yes, those are dandelions poking through the snow. If we had wandered further we could have gotten pictures with daffodils, magnolia or cherry blossoms in the snow.
