Blizzard of 2013

So we got a bit of snow over the last couple of days...

The kids were SO excited. Me? Not so much. My husband who had to shovel the driveway? Even less thrilled.

But how can the pure excitement of the children not make you smile?

We were VERY excited (and surprised) that we did not lose power since we have lost power for multiple days in previous storms. So all in all we have absolutely nothing to complain about this storm. My friend who is a nurse worked yesterday and then slept at the hospital last night. On her way home this morning her car got stuck three times. The last time she was unable to get it out and had to walk a quarter of a mile in the snow to get home to her husband and two girls. We are really blessed to have selfless people like her that go out in these storms to take care of others. A big thanks to all the essential personnel who make our world a better place!


  1. We got about the same snowfall totals here ;). My kids weren't exactly as thrilled with it though. Tomorrow might be better. We're still trying to dig out and a plow and then a back hoe and then a loader got stuck on our street today. They are saying 2 weeks to get the roads completely opened.

  2. Great photographs, Diane! Us too (on the not losing power so far! Knock on wood!) A great post for a very memorable weekend! So much snow all at once!! I wonder when I'll be able to open my back door...

  3. You were so lucky that you never lost power. We lost ours for about 12 hours over Friday night and boy did it get chilly inside the house after a while.
