We only got about an inch of snow. Now it's raining. School got cancelled today. They are calling it a snow day, but it isn't due to the 1 inch of snow on the ground. It's a rain day for the rain and snow that is expected to come. I imagine they don't want 600 kids to be stuck at school later this afternoon.
They are anticipating that this will be a historical storm for us, with up to 6 inches of rain followed by 6 inches of snow. This is Arizona, we sometimes don't see that much precipitation in a year. Many creeks may flood including one in Prescott. You can read about it here. They are already evacuating some homes.
Right now, David drove into Prescott for work and said the snow is just coming down hard. He's going in to cancel the interviews that were set up for today and then driving to Prescott Valley where it's a little lower elevation. If it gets too bad, he will head home and work from here for the rest of the day.
Here is our front yard from this morning.
I'll be hanging out with...
This funny boy. He saw the snow this morning and exclaimed, "It's back!"
And this crazy girl. I told her that she didn't have school today and she said, "Yippee!"
And this huggable baby. He didn't say anything about the snow, but he does like watching the fire.
My dear sweet husband went out this morning with our enormous ladder and wiped the snow off the satellite dish for me. God, I love that man more than words can express. He may have just saved my sanity today.
The rain just turned to snow....
I'm going to get the fireplace going and make us bacon and pancakes for breakfast. Oh, and entire pot of coffee. I think I'll need it.
Anyone want to come over?
