Winter Wonderland?

You hear the weather forecast and sometimes you get the snow they predict, for us sometimes it goes right over us and hits the snow belt. So I was a bit surprised when I opened my window yesterday morning to see this! The Newspaper said we had 14 inches of snow! I didn't think we would get much seeing how we have had such a mild winter. But it snowed for over 24 hours and we sure were hit!
Dh did his duty and spent 3 hours outside with the shovel and snowplow. The kids were devastated because it was just too cold for them to go out and play. They did have a treat watching dad and all the neighbors blowing a lot of snow around. I hope they can get out in the drifts at least one of these days - some of the drifts in our yard are as tall as the baby! But around here they aren't calling for temps in the 30's until next week :0
This is our deck, off to the right you can see the handle of a big wheel bike that was left there. Hard to believe it was a few weeks ago the kids were outside playing and riding bikes! There are icicles everywhere these are the only ones I would take a shot of, haven't been out in the snow yet! Too Cold! The kids are really enjoying looking at the mounds of snow. Not loving 3 days of school off in a row though!

We ended up with a 6 foot plus drift in our drive way, it was crazy.. the kids went out and played for about 30 min to an hour 3 different times yesterday and 2 times today. I have photos to post but since i can't load them on my computer I have to wait till I get to my moms house to get them online.

I love looking at all the pictures of snow, they look so peaceful.

It brings back lots of memories for me when I see all that snow. We used to live in Northern Maine and there were times we actually got stuck inside! We would have to wait for a neighbor to let us out.
