Look, Mom. It snowed!

Ok, grumbling first.  Isn't the purpose of canceling school the night before to allow mommies to sleep in?  Someone forgot to mention it to my kids who wanted to go out at bright and early.  *yawn*  Convinced them to let me make them eggs first so they had something warm in the tummies.

We knew it was Blizzard Watch 2011.  Supposed to be one of the worst storms ever in a city that does not get excited about snow.  Actually the first snow day Zack has ever had--in 3 years of school.  Not really sure how many inches we have.  The official total for our town is 17 inches.  But it is still snowing and it is blowing.  one side of our yard is four feet deep.  The other side more like 6 inches.  It is a bit crazy.

This is the view from my door.  The fence is 4ft.  The bbq is on blocks so it is 6ft. 

I must say that Wolfie loves it.  She keeps whining at the door wanting to go back out into it.  If you live here, a husky is the perfect dog choice.  The kids love it, too.  They are out and playing in the madness.  Allie admired the snow before heading out:

and here she is ready to head out into the frozen tundra:

Here they are.  My little snow bunnies playing in waist deep snow.

The town is closed down for today--shocking to those of us who are used to snow, snow, and more snow.  I wonder if it will continue tomorrow or if we will be back to normal.  The word from the weather dudes is that it will soon be too cold to snow more.

Uhm, goody?


  1. I'm almost jalouse! We are used to snow but we does not have much this year... it's frozing -25C but not much snow! I'm glad you kids enjoy it!

  2. My boys would be sooooo loving that snow! Here in FL, they feel so deprived when they hear about kids playing in snow! lol!
