The World's Tiniest Snow Day

Now I'm a tropical girl.  I've never driven in the snow.  I don't own snow pants.  I don't own waterproof gloves.  I'm very very happy when it's 85 and sunny.  But Seattle rarely gets snow.  We get it so rarely that when we do get it, it is a MAGICAL event.  It snowed here today for the first time in five years and I feel blissed out.  We played outside for about half an hour before it all melted and turned to slush and we trooped back in to warm drinks and snacks.  Enjoy our tiny snow day!
