First snow

First snowfall of the year in Boston today. Reminds me of a time many years ago. Our daughter, then aged 22 months, who had spent many happy hours baking with her mom, woke up one morning when it had snowed during the night. She looked out the window at the snow-covered neighborhood and exclaimed, "Flour!"

My brother's comment at approximately age 3: "The snow is white, like my underpants."

You inspired me to check the climate records. It was 17 October 1970. The next snow was 24 November that year.

What a sweet memory. I love how children see the world. There's a lesson there. :-)

I can remember asking my parents who painted everything white? This is what it looked like on my farm http://www.flickr.com/photos/7301847@N04/sets/72157622822648811/
