snow comes but once a year on Fort Bragg.

Snow man
Real and true snow made an appearance on Fort Bragg this week. And because the South isn’t well equipped to deal with even just a few inches, the entire post shut down- no school, no work, no nothing. Within minutes of daybreak on Wednesday, the hills around our homes were packed with parents and children, squealing with delight at their makeshift sleds (laundry baskets, plastic bins and flattened boxes galore). All the dogs frolicked and pounced about in their yards, big smiles on their snow-covered faces. All the birds ruffled up their feathers and spent the day huddled around the feeders. All the people quickly froze in our scraped-together cold weather gear, and spent the rest of the day inside, warm with hot chocolate, under cozy blankets. Let’s do this again next year, Fort Bragg!

  1. I really need a chair like Maddie’s. That thing looks insanely soft and cozy.
