The time was 5:30am when I first got out of bed. As I took a peek out the window I was not surprised, but still disappointed, to see there was no snow. When I looked out again at 7:00am, snow was falling and had already started to stick to the ground and by 8:00 the ground was covered. At this moment, flakes are lazily falling from the sky, but the morning storm is expect to be short lived. Our mountains aleady have close to 24" and another leg of the storm is expect to arrive this evening. This is as it should be.
