Snow!

If you live in Mississippi, you probably already know that it snowed Saturday night and Sunday morning. If you don't live in Mississippi, you might not know that this is a Big Deal. Usually we will get a little snow a couple of times during the winter each year, but rarely enough to accumulate. It was exciting to see snow actually covering the ground when I got up at 6:30 Sunday morning to walk to the corner store to pick up a newspaper. I grabbed my camera and took a few pictures as Mr. McHacker and I walked. The quality is not so great, mostly due to user error, but you get the idea.

Mr. McHacker was excited about the snow too.

This is the neighborhood where we live.

The ornamental pear trees in front of the apartment must be so confused. Some of the branches still have brown leaves that have not fallen off yet, new green leaves and blossoms, and now freezing cold snow.

After getting our newspaper, we went back to sleep for a while and by the time we got back up, the snow was mostly gone. We had a very lazy Sunday, which was nice since I had such a busy week with making cakes. Now I've got to get caught up on the laundry and cleaning and such. I hope everyone's week is off to a good start.
(I'll have cake pictures posted tomorrow.)

I am SO JEALOUS! I haven't seen snow at all in 20 years and my boys never have!

And I can't wait to see the cake pics -- I suppose samples are out of the question?

Envy!! We must have missed that one. Either that or I didn't wake up early enough for it.

Wasn't it great? I was afraid we weren't going to see any this year!
