What a weekend! We’re not completely sure how much snow actually accumulated because the snow drifts are so dramatic. There are humongous piles coming up to our windows in some places, while grass and pavement are exposed in others. Such a crazy and beautiful snow storm! We were prepared for the worst with lots of food, full tanks of gas, laundry done, etc., but it was all unnecessary. We didn’t lose power for even a minute! Our biggest issue was trying to get out of our driveway, which is significantly longer than our old one. Fortunately a new belt on the snow blower, along with the selfless plowing help of a neighbor, made the hard work go by quickly.
As pretty as the snow is, I have been happy to hold down the fort inside. With a hot cup of coffee in hand, I watch from the window as the big kids sled everywhere and throw snow at each other. I’m perfectly satisfied to bake and cook and have hot chocolate prepared and throw all the snowy clothes in the dryer. All while the little ones play together inside and watch movies.
I do have plans to take them out sometime this week to play, but it’s just so much snow. I don’t expect them to last very long, but maybe they’ll prove me wrong and I’ll be the one who won’t last! Angel is now wearing my only pair of snow boots too, so it’s difficult to be in the snow at the same time as her. This was a serious, record-breaking snow fall! I’m so glad that we got to experience this blizzard in the new house! The breathtaking blankets of snowfall are definitely a sight to behold. So serene and peaceful.
