I don’t ever recall having a Snow Day in November but we had one this past Tuesday! Our beloved little Ann Arbor got almost a foot of snow! That got me to looking up snow pictures from year’s past…

1957. I wish Pugsley enjoyed snow this much! He hates it and looks at me sadly, wondering how on earth I could allow such a travesty to happen.
