The backyard.

We were the bulls eye of the weekend storm. Official total for our area of the county was 13 inches. My parents only ended up with 7 inches about an hour south of us. The Beach got 9-13. We're all dug out thanks to Paul. I stayed inside. I'm so totally not a cold weather kind of girl.

Making snow angels.


I enjoyed the beautiful snow from inside at first. I put the zoom lens on my camera and got a few pictures. Then we were home another day, and another and it warmed up a bit and I ventured outside with the grilies and got some better pictures.

Working on our snowman.

It's stacked with help from our neighbor.

Girlies don't make snowmen- has to be a snow princess!

We are home again today. Just too many back roads and sidewalks and schools to be plowed to get the county operational again. We had sleet last night and a good dose of black ice this morning. We have done tons of crafts, baked cookies played games, read books. They are starting to get on each other's nerves at this point. And it looks like another dose of measurable snow is headed our was Friday and Saturday. Whoo Hoo!!



  1. I can't believe all the snow you guys got out there! I'm totally jealous!!! :) When I lived in Virginia Beach we were thrilled with a couple inches, and they practically got a blizzard! Wish I could be out there to enjoy it...although I'm not sure we would be grilling burgers! Snow=Soup if you ask me! :) Looks like y'all had alot of fun, though!

  2. LOVE the snow princess!!! guys have more snow than we do right now:-)!!

    This must be very exciting for the girls to be able to play in the white stuff, and I think snow helps brighten the dreary gray of least up here....BUT if you have to go out and drive, well that's no fun.

    Have some hot chocolate and enjoy!


  3. Welcome to a Northern Winter! Reading your post I was thinking you lived next door (haha). Actually you guys have been dumped on big time! (I'm not sure where exactly you're at ... but I take it it's not supposed to be weather like this! The boys are home from school today too and have been up since 6am ... and it's now only 9:30 and it already feels like it has been a long day! Love the snow princess though. Maybe she can get together with our snowman-heehee. Enjoy the snow if you can! (or at least some hot cocoa like Tami suggested.)

  4. P.S. Love the grillin' in the snow! And with a fine photo to boot. Now that is perfect and it looks very yummy.
