October 9th 2009 was our first snowfall this year. At first it was melting as it hit the ground which brought lots of joy to me:)Later in the afternoon, it STAYED!!! Our family was going to attend a football game, of course I wasn't going, and I dreaded to take the dog for a walk . It so happens I enjoyed the walk ,it was quite refreshing ,and our dog enjoyed it as well. So when we got home I stayed out side for 20 minutes longer! and took many pictures and videos. but still glad it all melted the next day.
