Our First Big Snowfall

I’m like a kid – I love a good snow day, and I’m disappointed when the weathermen over predict and under deliver.  Well, we finally got a real snowfall this week and it was something!   I think our accumulation was around 8 inches. It started Wednesday afternoon, falling fast and furious around 3pm.   The...

Say it ain’t Snow

Here were are, still trying to manage from the weekend storm and they are calling for more tomorrow.   Even worse, they keep UPGRADING the estimates – once upon it a time it was 4 to 6″, now they are forecasting 10 to 20″!!! Our street is plowed – at least one lane’s worth, but...

Well, around 5pm, the snow stopped.  I think they called for it to last til late evening (maybe?). Anywho. shortly after my post about how we were all hunky dory, the power went out.   Dang it.   We were out of power for about 2 hours and it just came back on.   Thank you, Jesus! ...

Snowmageddon 2010

Well the blizzard has arrived, delivered on it’s promise, and hasn’t left yet.  The media is freaking out about it, but we are enjoying the novelty, for now.  (Ask me how I feel to be snowed in on Monday). Yesterday, school was canceled pre-emptively, so Wendy was invited to a friend’s house...

My local jurisdiction sent out an emergency alert warning, “Another severe winter storm, with near blizzard conditions, is forecast to hit our area Fri., Feb. 5 through Sat., Feb. 6. Be prepared to shelter in place for 3 to...

Of Sledding and Snow Shakes

Sunday was a beautiful morning, with perfect conditions for sledding. Sunny, not too windy, and not so much snow that we couldn’t drive our minivan to the nearest bestest hill in our neighborhood. It took some effort to get all of the children into their snow gear and out the door, but finally, we...

More snowy fun

We are dug out and getting around, but it is still pretty snowy around here.  On day two of the big storm (Sunday), there was nary a plow in sight.  Lucky for us, one of our neighbors motored by in his bobcat and helped to dig us out. He made a huge...

Unless you live under a rock, you probably heard the East Coast got a whopper of a snow storm.  Our area got up to 24″;  I estimate our house got closer to 15-17″ but it sure felt like more.   This is how we spent our snowy day. By 11am, we had 8″...

Frosty – the snow man that keeps on giving

Last Saturday (8 days ago).  We had a snow day.  When we left our house in the morning, it had only just started to come down. When we came home a few hours later, a change had taken place. This would be the back of Sam’ snowy head: It was a good...

Snow Day!

It’s been bitter cold this winter, but not so snowy.  FINALLY, on Tues 1/27, we got our first real taste of snow.  The kids were ecstatic!  I was not too excited about the prospect of bundling everyone up, but we still had a great time (I waited until the baby’s naptime so I wouldn’t...
