It's still snowing in Central Louisiana. We've gotten an accumulation of three or four inches and it's still coming down. The grandsons are loving it. They've never seen enough snow to do anything with and they're quite amazed. This morning before daylight we went out and I taught them the basics of snow-man construction.
This is a wet, sticky snow, perfect for snowballs and snow men. It's also heavy and I forgot just how heavy wet snow can be. So, we've sustained snow damage at PawPaw's house. Our gazebo took a hit. That was a light-weight metal frame supporting a canvas roof. It's still a light-wieght metal frame, but it's not supporting much.
Whether we'll rebuild it is problematic. I've got the equipment and expertise to rebuid the thing, but we may decide to go with something sturdier.
The weather weenies tell me that this is the first time since 1973 that we've had two measurable snowfalls in the same winter season. I'd just as soon we let that record go for another forty years, but the grandsons are loving it.
