Today was our 1st real snow of the season. Every year, I get a child like excitement as I gaze with wide eyed wonder at the beauty of the falling snow. I remember as a kid, when in school, everyone would get giddy as the snow started falling. Thoughts of "how much will we get, will school let out early, or maybe we will get so much snow that we will have an official snow day tomorrow!!!" Anyone who grew up in the Midwest, will certainly remember those nostalgic childhood feelings.
