The Blizzard of Jan. 2011

It started sometime Monday in the wee hours of the morning and snowed all day long! We got about 5-6 inches of snow in all and some sleet late in the afternoon. It was pretty cold and there was quite a biting breeze. Nonetheless, we bundled up and braved the elements. We played in the yard for a while, but the snow was very dry and powdery - we could not even make decent snowballs or a snowman!

We finally decided to go sledding at the school across the road from our neighborhood. Once the sled packed the snow down the sledding was pretty good.

After sledding down the hill a few times, all Zach wanted to do was get in the way of those of us that wanted to sled. He would run and try to jump in the way of the sled every time we would try. Stinker! He just didn't understand that this would result in injury, I guess. His other favorite thing to do was to roll down the hill. No wonder he was so worn out! Bill had to carry Zach back to the house - he wouldn't even ride in the sled. When we finally got back home, Z had had enough! Cold, tired, and hungry!

We did not go out today at all. The snow had a layer of ice on top which made walking difficult. I think we all have a bit of cabin fever by now. School is already canceled for Wed. too! I hope we will be able to get out tomorrow... at least for a little while.

  1. We had that same powdery snow Monday and about a 1/2 inch of ice yesterday. It was interesting to say the least. The sun is finally shining today and I can't wait for this white stuff to melt! I'm ready to go somewhere!! :)

    Glad you all had some fun! Those pics of Zach are adorable.


I'd love to know what you think!
