A Holiday Snowstorm to Remember

DSC_0289

This weekend we were hit with the biggest snow storm this area has seen EVER!! By final counts we had about 2 FEET of snow!! AMAZING!! It truly was a winter wonderland (and I guess it still is...). Most everything in our area is still shut down today, since the snow didn't stop until 5 pm on Saturday afternoon. Chris attempted to go out and check on things at work, and has already turned around to come home. He said that the roads are still really bad, cars are abandoned everywhere. Even on the major highways! He saw two expensive cars on the side of a major highway with both fenders ripped off by the snow plows.

I know one little person who has loved all of this snow....as you can see from the first picture. That is the lovely 'tie-die' sled that I finally found at the grocery store on Friday morning. It is a good thing that I hunted around for it, because it has gotten lots of use this weekend. There is almost too much snow for Bradley, but they still found a way to have fun out there. I didn't venture out in it, being pregnant and not having a pair of decent snow boots kept me inside.

Here are the two boys about to head out on Saturday morning. It was still a blizzard outside but Bradley HAD to go out!

I love this photo, he was so excited! You can see how hard it was coming down even with Bradley standing under the deck!

By Sunday they were able to have a lot of fun in the snow. Here they are making some snow angels. Once they plowed the main road through the neighborhood they went sledding. There was still enough snow/ice after the plowing to make for some great hills!
