Blizzard 2013*

* does anyone else find it stupid a wee bit ridiculous to name a blizzard?  I refuse to call it Nemo.  Just sayin'.

We got some serious snow up here this weekend.  You may have heard about it.  It truly was a blizzard (as opposed to just a snow storm).  My parents got three feet in NY.  We got well over 2 feet.  It was windy and nasty and cold Friday afternoon and evening and most of Saturday.  But Sunday was glorious.

I mean it:  it was GORGEOUS out.  Sunny, only a mild breeze, and "winter-warm," which is to say, not bitter cold, and only barely freezing.  We had a blast playing with the kids.  This wasn't their first major snow, but it was their first where they were both old enough to play in it.  (Even if WHM wasn't quite tall enough to walk in it!)

I love this picture.  She looks jubilant. (She was.)



  1. I am so jealous! We've had a couple light dustings and that's about it. Great pics!!

    1. Thanks! We have a big fancy-schmancy camera, and I snapped every single one of these with my cell phone!
