  3. and here it is! looks like a beautiful snow globe out my windows... I was remembering back to the first year we lived in this house and my daughters were little... the snow was so high against the sliders it was above their heads! I had never seen so much snow in my life... I think we are about to see a repeat... but now my youngest is taller than me it will just be up to her long legged knees I think:-) Stay warm and safe.
