Blizzard Monday

We made it to church yesterday.  The roads weren't too bad in our neighborhood so I was surprised at how bad they were in some of the other towns around us.  School was cancelled today for most of the area.  After lunch I decided to drive around and take some photos.  It was so beautiful!  There were very few cars on the road, so when I needed to take a picture, I just stopped in the middle of the road.

After my little photo drive, I came home to see the kids sledding again. 

Zoey was standing on the plowed sidewalk in front of our house.

Molly sits in the hole she is digging that eventually became a tunnel over to the fort that Chloe was building.

This fort!  Jillian came out the second day and helped dig.

Kate's boot fell off and Jordan came to the rescue to put it back on.

 Zoey gives me the thumbs up to let me know that all is well.

To answer some questions:

We never lost power.

We do cancel home school when we have a snow day.  Call me immature, but I am no better at staying focused when there is a big blizzard than any of my kids.  I LOVE blizzards (as long as we keep our power!) and I want a snow day as bad as they do.  We did make an exception to that today because it was raining--yuck--so not very snow day-ish.

Some people have generators but most do not.  Yes, the power seems to go out somewhere in New England every time we have a bad storm.

I LOVE the pictures!!! Wonderful memories made!!! It makes me think of the fun I had when I was a kid. We had so much fun, but we just don't get big amounts of snow anymore. :( My girl's would absolutely love it!
