Durham finally got its first snow fall of the season last Thursday night. It didn’t come as early as in previous years when we got snow in early December then on Christmas day. Nonetheless, it was exciting for us who don’t normally get snow. I was also hoping enough snow would fall so that we’d have a snow day on Friday.
Of course, it didn’t happen. No snow day for me. Snow did fall, and it was a joy to see. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough to stick on the pavements and only caused a two hour delay to the start of our day.
Just a few days before the predicted day, we had sunny, 70 degree days. It almost felt springlike and my husband swears some of the daffodils out back started to sprout already.
