I saw it as I was driving out of our driveway. I stopped, opened the window and peered outside. Had I imagined it? I drove slowly down the hill, and there! another one.
When I got to Oil Can Henry's the guy came out to give me a newspaper. Just as he reached my window, he stopped and looked up.
"Did you see that?" he asked.
"Can you believe it?" I said.
We shook our heads in amazement and stared up at the sky. No doubt about it.
It was snowing.
Of course, it didn't stick. And of course, it's turned back to rain, but make no mistake: we got snow today. Here, in a part of the country that cancels school with even a forecast of snow.
Snow. On a Monday. It's almost like magic.
