Snow Runnning

Like most of the Pacific Northwest, we have snow on the ground right now. Mountain Home gets snow every winter, but never more than a few inches or maybe a foot at most. It's very, very dry snow that doesn't stick together. Great for driving, horrible for snowball fights and snowmen!
I can't be stuck in the house for more than 48 hours, so we bundled up this morning and went for a snow run. It's actually quite exhilarating knowing that you're probably the only person besides the construction guys to be outside for miles. Jack is laughing at my face mask that makes me look like Darth Vadar in this one.

Don't worry, Mother, Jack has about 10 layers on underneath his snowsuit, and he also sucks on his pacifier to warm that part of his face. Plus, the windshield helps a lot. He's usually asleep within minutes.

So, everybody, your instructions for today are these: go for a run in the snow!
