SNOW DAY!!!!!!!

Snow Day---Woohoo!!!!!

Here is the official family measurement of the snow in our specific yard...

But somehow I think there was more in the front. I shoveled this walkway twice yesterday-- shoveled it so that there was a lot of pavement showing. This morning it looked completely unshoveled.

Here is our backyard. Winter wonderland. I love it!

Snow days seem life a gift from God to those of us who endure severe weather for a number of months a year. It's as though God knows we need a break. This one was especially wonderful because it was called the night before so we didn't have to get up to check the listings. We just slept in all warm and cozy with the bright fluffy stuff coating everything with peace.

I did quite a bit of shoveling yesterday and then had to do a lot more this morning. My husband or my kids would have done it, but I was having fun. It was a light fluffy snow, pretty easy to lift. But now I'm starting to feel sore. Took a couple of motrin. Maybe a little stretching would help too. (I'm sure it would:-)

Stay warm (if you're in one of these cold climates). Stay safe.

You've got a bit more. We would have had that much, but there was a break in between and enough warmth to melt some down and then we got this last helping. Pretty pictures!

Nice pictures. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. I shoveled the driveway twice since my husband went to work and there are at least 5 more inches and it is coming down so hard. I guess we may really get 12"-18"
Stay safe and warm.

I enjoy snow days as well. We haven't had one in a very long time. Snow, but nothing major. I love those beautiful pictures!

Enjoy some hot chocolate and stay cozy!
