To talk about our SNOW DAY!We spent the night before listening to pounding winds and thunder-snow, and then we were privileged to wake up to mild blizzarding and mountains of snow!
Well, our little family spent the entire month of January moving from the "barf your guts out" disease, to conjunctivitis, to sinus infections, to sore throats, and so on. So, it was an AMAZING and WONDERFUL change of pace to wake up to a winter wonderland on February 2nd.
As much as I hate the idea of snow anytime besides Christmas Eve and Christmas day, I have to admit, Snow-magedon left a beautiful sight out our front door!
As Kevin and I were staring out the window at 6:00am, I realized that our neighbors had been completely blocked in their apartments by snowdrifts. So Kevin and I geared up and spent the next 2 hours digging people out of their front doors. We were lucky enough to only be blocked in our house by about a foot of snow, so I was able to slam my way out, but some of our neighbors were buried 4.5 to 5 feet up their doors!
Our car was one of the many snowdrift victims, thus, Kevin did not make it out of the parking lot or to work that day. Although, it wouldn't have mattered if he did. Once out of our parking lot, there were no roads to drive on until the late afternoon.
So Kevin spent his work day digging out our car instead. He did a pretty good job and even managed to keep our snow off the other cars.
In the meantime...Brooklyn and Lily found our stash of toilet paper and spare wood and created the above scene! They also managed to cover every other existing spot of our floor with craisins and cracker crumbs, complimentary of Brooklyn's new found tiptoe skills.
After the wind died down and it completely stopped snowing, we bundled up the girls and went to play outside for awhile. It was awesome making snow angels in 2 feet of snow and watching the excitement on the girls' faces as they played in the mountainous piles.
We played and played until Brooklyn thought it would be a good idea to white wash Lily's face. After that, Lily and I went inside while Kevin and Brooklyn spent the rest of the daylight jumping in and out of snow!
Anyway, we had a lot of fun on our snow day... I hope it melts soon, but it was certainly fun for a little while!
