Snowed In

They're calling it the Blizzard of 2009, breaking all kinds of records. I'm calling it a wonderful weekend. Even though we are sorely under-geared for snow (Hazel had to go out in double pants and rain boots and we had to borrow my sister's snow shovel), we had a fabulous snowed-in weekend around here.

We stayed home, played in the snow, watched movies, baked like crazy, took naps, and had totally uninterrupted family time. Not a single errand was run in two days by anyone - now THAT is a new record!
Back and front snowfall by about mid-day Saturday - check out the drifting on the back of Ed's car (green Honda across the street)

Buried in snow

Back porch snowfall by 7pm Saturday - we measured about 21 inches

Our van Sunday morning before digging out

Our street Sunday morning - church was cancelled - what a weekend!

Oh sure: it's all fun and games when it happens once a decade or so. Now imagine that kind of snowfall and still having to dig out and get to work by 7 am.

I am so glad we don't live with the lake effect snow machine. That Wyoming Homeboy looks right at home with the snow shovel.

I love being snowed in! And the girls look like they are having such fun!
Your back patio area looks AWSOME, wish I could come sip some lemonade in six more months!
