Snow in the burg

It snowed last night in Williamsburg - first snow they've seen all year, I think! Chris was in a meeting yesterday afternoon and some of the people started taking pictures on their phones out the window. You can tell snow is kind of a once in a year occurrence around here. It was pretty sunny this morning which is a good thing because I didn't see a plow/salt truck anywhere and our street was pretty iced over. Of course, the roads that where being driven on were melting down a bit.

The other reason you can tell that snow is a rare occurrence here is because where Chris and I grew up, this amount of snow wouldn't even cause a delay of school, yet when we got to church this morning, this is what the parking lot looked like:

Empty. I guess snow keeps everyone indoors! It is already melting away so I'm glad I got to enjoy it last night and this morning while we had it.

Also, we found out that we either have a cat, raccoon, or some other type of small animal visiting up during the night. I heard meowing the other day when I was home but I couldn't find the source. I really hope it's a cat and not some other weird animal.
