Earlier this week we were warned that a huge snowstorm (huge for us is two inches, let's be real) was on the horizon and we needed to prepare. Temperatures dropped, schools delayed and next thing we knew we were bracing for six inches of snow. The girls were SO excited. I'll admit David and I were too.
After our escapade last year, I'd much rather be home in the snow and ice, than out trying to get home. So I was thankful the schools closed and my workplace. David was able to work from home - so we were ready for some snow.
And it rained. And rained. And rained. It was a freezing rain with some ice here and there. We were about 25 miles from the bigger snow 3 inches and in many places 6-9 inches. We were so sad. But just as we were giving up, it started to snow at 7:15 p.m. last night and the girls were beside themselves.
SO excited! FINALLY!
We let them play for a good 20 minutes while it was coming down hard and beautifully. Then off to bed. We told them we'd play in the morning. We got enough to dust everything pretty well. But not enough to last past 6:00 a.m. Bummer.
Using snow from Daddy's truck to make the snowman
But we made the best of it and played (David and the girls, I don't do snow). They even managed a snowman. Sweet little, pitiful thing!
Aunt B, Uncle C, Pop, Gran, Stace, Jamie and Carrie are all still snowed in and schools/businesses closed. We wish we had some of their snow, but it will be nice to have one normal day this week and start to get back to our routine. We've loved every minute of delayed school/work start times and playing together!
Sweet things and their wee snowman
We can't wait for the next snow - but until then we'll enjoy our 70 degree temps and rain next week!
Mama was thrilled her snowman was still alive after school!
