Snow Day: December 5, 2007
This was our morning: during breakfast  the world was pretty much black and white  with the occasional spot of  color. Out the deck door  it was pretty  wintry, and we couldn't see much  out the north kitchen window. The grape arbor  was  pretty bare  , and the lilac was  coated with snow. Reilly seemed  to think  she wanted  to go outside . We told her it looked like this  but she insisted  and eventually found  a place to watch it all from.
A little later we opened the garage door  -- but a bit after that rescue arrived  (you'll notice we'd already made some headway, though).
