The weatherman predicted flurries with no accumulation...

First Snow of the Season!

A few of us volunteers had a late night work session cataloging some new items into the History Center. There was a prediction of flurries with no accumulation. The flurries are in the first photo. By the time we were done and packing up, we noticed the "no accumulation".
