When you live in Florida your whole life, you don’t have much experience with snow. So when the first snow of the year falls on your new home, it’s pretty exciting. After getting bundled up, it’s time to explore our new winter wonderland.

Snow days are fun when you have nothing you need to do. But when one needs to go to school or work, walking through the slush can change your opinion on snow real quick. I’m still glad we experienced a few snow days though—something improbable in sunny Florida!
