The freak snow storm that hit the East Coast last weekend was quite the exciting news around the Washington DC suburbs. We’ve lived here for nearly 14 years and have never had snow this early in the season. We comment every year that we’re either in shorts or winter coats for Halloween…but we’ve NEVER had snow in October.
Apparently, it hasn’t snowed in the DC area in the month of October since 1979, and last week’s storm was only the 3rd in recorded history.
The two younger kids were eager to get out in the snow and play a little (yes, Reese was wearing flip flops, shorts, and a Halloween cape in the snow) but the rest of us just enjoyed a little extra time inside.
Yes, I know that this is not much snow…but holy cow! It was October!
