A weekend unplugged

For the past so many years, we’ve had a tradition of going away with friends over New Years.  However, with kids and life, things tend to change and our New Years trip has evolved into a “winter weekend”.   For years, our destination was a small cabin in Front Royal, but as our families expanded,...

At the beginning of winter break, I worried about how we would fill our time.   I ended up signing the big kids up for a 3 day minicamp at our local ice rink.   This turned out to be  a great activity.   The lessons ran from 9:45-10:15, then we hung out til the 11am public...

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...

The Blizzard is coming… the Blizzard is coming!

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...

A new Little Cabin in the Woods

I’ve mentioned before, that we typically go to a small cabin out near Front Royal over New Years with friends from college.  The good thing about the cabin was it was free, not too far away, and “rustic” enough that it was okay for everyone to bring their 17 dogs (I exaggerate, a tad). ...

You may recall, about two weeks ago, Adam won a trip to the ER, courtesy of his busted head.   In addition to stitches, he apparently came home with germs.   ER on Saturday, then happy and healthy all day Saturday and Sunday … until around dinner time.  Just as I was trying to coax some...

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...
