Don't Like the Weather? Wait Awhile

That's what's been happening outside the Frog and PenguINN over the past 24 hours. The weather here is changeable and that was really evident in the past 24 hours. Here's a rundown of our local weather: Friday morning and afternoon brought intermittent snow showers, then came the sleet and rain, overnight rain was accompanied by strong gusting winds which rattled windows through the night. When the wind subsided early Saturday, the rain continued. Parts of the F&P back yard flooded out after after 2 inches of rain.

The weather really got more interesting (some people would use a different term) about mid-day Saturday when light snow started to fall and fall - a wet and heavy snowfall that coated the trees, roadways, standing water and everything else.

It's still snowing at 6:30 p.m. Parts of the Mid-Atlantic area were slammed with up to 2 feet of snow from this storm. Last weekend was the first major snowfall in this area in years when over 9-1/2 inches fell and shut down local schools for 3 days (secondary roads are not plowed in this area).

Grenville and Beatrice have been hibernating all day - reading and enjoying hot chocolate and homemade soup and bread - it's what bears do best!
