The Snow Didn't Stop Me

Yes, we are getting snow.

I have heard everything from 4" to 12". 

This photo is taken about 6pm, and it has been snowing for a couple of hours.

We had steaks planned for the grill, marinating all day, ready to go.

Do you think a little snow is going to get in the way of that?

Not in this house!

The steaks are underway!

Notice the steam on the grill.

The steaks are underway!

I think we should re-gift this snow to the northeast.

 

I'll get right on it...!
