The Great Blizzard of 2011

Yep it happened!  We woke up to snow yesterday and it continued until after dark, they say we got right around 12 inches.  At times it was coming down/blowing so hard that we couldn't see past the front porch and there are now three and four foot drifts everywhere!  It got so bad that all the businesses around here were closing down including Sonic and we even heard that the big mall up in the city closed for the day.

The kids were out of school again today and Mike stayed home again...thank goodness because it took him forever to uncover our driveway so we could actually get out if we needed to.  Unfortunately there will be no melting for the next couple of days since we still have windchills of below zero :(  I think we are supposed to warm up by Sat. but then there's another chance of snow Sun./Mon.

Lexy just can't stand that there is all this wonderful snow out there and we won't let her go out and play in it (it's just TOO cold)!  So twice already today we've let her go out and get a bowl of snow to play with on the table and she's loving it!  I also made snow cream for the girls for the first time ever, it was really good!

Eating Snow Cream...YUM!

Our 12 inches

Just got word that there's no school again tomorrow.  All the kids on facebook are agreeing with the moms...enough is enough already, they want to go back to school! :)

Yummmmmmmmmmm to snow cream! We haven't had snow in a couple of weeks but we've had a very snowy winter in general. I'm ready for spring!
