Snow Days

We are having crazy weather out in the Northwest. A day of snow here or there is to be expected over the winter season but we are going on day 10+ of ice and snow with only a few brief reprieves. Last week for school, Madison had 3 late start days and 2 cancelled days. Over this past weekend we go 6-8 inches of snow. Thankfully the bad winds that were predicted never arrived (after we bought a generator, just to guarantee nothing bad would happen!) I haven't had the camera out much in the cold and snow but here is a sampling of the past week.

We are loving the snow fun and I am thrilled that all my shopping was done early but I think a few more days of this and we are going to be getting cabin fever! The forecast for the next few days is light snow showers so hopefully we will be able to dig out from this by the New Year!

We have really been enjoying the new sled hill in our neighborhood. Last spring, a family built a home at the end of the cul-de-sac with this huge, steep driveway up to the top. Perfect for sledding and even better that they have kids to go sledding with!!! It has helped get us out of the house without getting into the car.

Wishing you all a White Christmas and happy celebrations!

Ha, we were blogging about the snow at the same time! Sounds like you are getting a little stircrazy too... glad I'm not the only one.

Merry Christmas Lisa!

The snow looks amazing. Can't believe how long it's lasted. Must be some kind of a record!
