I looked outside this afternoon, and I mentioned to Dave that I thought it was flurrying. Sure enough, the veteran snow dweller verified what I was looking at. We wanted to document this event, as we are sure it doesn't really snow like this every year. When we looked into our yard a couple of hours later, we saw a canopy of snow in our desert backyard.
Dave is happy! He is teaching Makana to rejoice also when the snow comes down. :)
