Got out of bed one morning to find everything ouside white. I guess this is what they call snow. Katie and I went out in it – weird stuff and it is edible too. Katie said it was just a light dusting, no big deal. She spent her first 2 years of life in southern Germany in the Allgäu where they had cold winters and several feet of the white stuff. Here in St. Peter-Ording our temps never went far below freezing and a dusting of snow was enough to close schools and businesses. Little did I know that I would be moving to Minnesota and my next winter would be a good 4 months long with temperatures down to -20 Fahrenheit and many feet of snow. This little dusting was really nothing!
