The First Accumulation

Many southern transplants that come to live in Kentucky will call anything that falls from the sky “Snow” but I think this is really a dilution of what Snow with a capital ‘S’ really means. For frozen precipitation to be properly called Snow it must completely cover the surface on which it falls. Preferably this precipitation must be at least an inch deep of powder. Anything less is really demeaning.

The photo taken today to the right is the result of flurries that fell over night. As you can see the roof tops are only partially covered and there was only enough precipitation to fill-in the cracks in the parking lot.
