At 11:00 a.m. today the alarm went off. 20 pre-teen students went nuts at the sight of our first flakes falling from the sky. All learning ceased for a good 5 minutes as they postulated the probability of getting out early as their calm (but equally as excited) teacher tried to explain how the dynamics of the storm wouldn't allow for much snow to fall...but to no avail.
A strong storm system to our north brought us a relatively dry cold front. With it came a steep decrease in temperature, and sharp gusty winds from the NW. We got some good flurries and a light snow shower between 11:00 and 11:45 am.
