Well, what do ya snow!

Monday’s winter storm might have produced little more than a light dusting, but it was plenty enough for Hillcrest Elementary School kindergartners to enjoy. And there’s more frolicking in white fluff to be had on Whidbey, with more snow in the forecast going into Wednesday Jan. 15. This is good news for kindergartner Lauretta Hodges. “I like it,” she said of the snow falling around her Monday morning. “Because you get to make snowmans.”
