2011/036: Bonus – Snow Day

Yesterday was actually snow day #4, but the first day that we actually had snow, and not ice and sleet. We woke up to a winter wonderland, and ended up with about 6 inches (15cm) of snow. Unfortunately it was the powdery stuff, so there will be no pictures of snowmen or snowball fights.

The view of our street.

I guess if you can’t build a snowman, clearing the snow off mommy’s car is the next best thing?

A heart, created by the falling snow from a tree branch

Glittery snow, once the sun finally came out again.

It’s a beautiful, sunny day today, with clear blue skies. Temperatures will finally be above freezing again, and after being held hostage by whoever is in charge of clearing the roads, it looks like we will finally be able to GO somewhere again.  I expect all the snow to be melted away by sometime tomorrow, but I still have a few snowy pictures (and snowflakes) to share in the days to come.

    • Nah, the Stupid Bowl… I mean Super Bowl… will be fine! Both teams arrived before the first storm hit, and Cowboys Stadium was always exempt from the rolling blackouts this week.

  3. Wow, that’s quite a bit for you! You have been asking for awhile, so we Northerners decided there was plenty to share this year, and so we sent some your way. 🙂 You’re welcome!

  5. So you finally got a lot of snow, just a shame that it is the powder type. When my son was little, he wanted to keep some of the snow in our freezer, and so we did, and took it out a summers day.
