SNOW STORM - late post but it was a doozy

So I've been complaining about how cold it's been with no snow to play in. Well the end of January the Snow came down! It started snowing about noon and didn't stop snowing until like 7 or 8 that night. It was heavy snow too. The news said it was a Thunder Snow Storm. It took Matthew 8 hours to get home from work, which it normally takes about 45 mins to an hour. But we did go out and try and play in the snow and slide down some hills this time.

This is a castle some kids in the neighborhood were making it was so cool!

The little thing sliding down in the middle is Kathryn in a big plastic garbage bag. She loved it!
I have a fear of sledding since my time at Ricks College but that didn't stop Kathryn and Daddy from having some fun.

The turtle didn't work so well. to many grooves on the turtles back.
Here's are second attempt at a snowman this time it's at least a foot and a half.
Just an awesome tree that is just down the way from us.
We had to dig out the parking space by the time Matthew got home. I went out to help our neighbor cause her car got stuck before she got into her parking spot and then Matthew pulled up and she helped us get him in as he got stuck as well. It's kinda fun to shovel snow. I don't think I'd want to do it more then a few times a year though.
It is quite pretty when it's all covered in snow!

This is just a few hours after it had started. I didn't move the van for 5 days after it snowed. It was so stuck in there.
I hope this was the last of the snow for this winter. I need some sunshine! Warmth!

You and me both. 24 inches in one day is more than enough. Hopefully you are getting the same warm up we are here.
