The snow was not sticking last night at first because the ground wasn't cold enough. But continuos allnight snow and dropping temperatures gave us 8.4" instead of the 1-3 inches snow predicted.

Walked up the block to Starbucks for a quiet hour without responsibility.(Mom had fallen and hurt her back on Monday so I'd been sticking close to her.)
