Blizzard!

Oh, how I love snow storms. 
…the anticipation
…the crazy people at the grocery stores
…the excitement as the entire city braces for impact
…the fact that something is happening

The schools all closed before the blizzard hit, so we enjoyed a low-key morning preparing for the storm.

We made valentines.

More importantly, we made cookies.

Then the snow started.  This is what the yard looked like as the first flakes began to fall.  (It’s been a while since we’ve seen our grass.)

This is what it looked like the next morning.  If you use the white fence as a guide, you can get a feel for the amount of snow out there.

Soon it was time to dig out.

Thankfully, when we were about 1/2 way down the driveway, three of our neighbors came to our rescue with their snow blowers.  One may ask why, living where we do, we don’t own a snow blower.  To them we say, “Who needs to shovel?  Hit the gas and don’t stop till you’re free of the driveway!  It’ll melt eventually.”  That tactic didn’t quite work today…

The end.

  1. Ohhhhhh, how your house looks like a fun place to be!!!
    Especially the cookies. 🙂

  2. I was regretting our decision to NOT own a snowblower also…or even a second shovel! Sigh. At least we got it done. Now patiently waiting until the snow plow comes through. I’m thinking it;ll be midnight!!!
