Snowed In

Last weekend we were snowed in!  The weathermen had been warning us that a blizzard was on its way towards us on the East coast but the reports would vary from getting 5 inches or 25 inches.  We knew we’d be getting something, it was just a matter of how much.  We went to bed Friday night just as the snow started to fall and woke up on Saturday to several inches covering the ground.  Over the course of the day we kept  accumulating snow and Forest kept lacing up his boots and bundling up to shovel more snow out of the driveway.

When it was all said and done, by Sunday morning, Forest guessed we had close to 20 inches!  And that didn’t take into account the huge snow drifts that were much deeper.  We took Peyton out in the snow mid-morning on Sunday so she could experience the fluffy white stuff.  She wasn’t too impressed but I think that was more because we had her so bundled that she couldn’t move. ;)

Over-documented?  Probably.  Necessary?  Absolutely!
