We do have sons. Boys sure tend to vanish when the camera appears though. They looked so bright against our first snow when they were bringing in my shopping bags I ran out to catch them as they are right now - one growing like a weed, the other finding all sorts of reasons to postpone that haircut another day.
The glitter-soft flakes have turned the farm into a snow globe but have had little impact locally other than to frost every surface beautifully. This kind of snow we won't complain about.
