In like a lion…

IMG_9317

We got our much anticipated snow storm yesterday and ended up with about 7 or so inches.  Since most of the east coast got snow, I don’t know how many times I heard the phrase, “March is definitely coming in like a lion!”  How original ;)

Jack and I admired the snow from afar until I decided to get us all bundled up after lunch.  I took advantage of a lull in the storm and layered us all up.  It ended up taking me about 30 minutes to find all the appropriate winter gear and then get it on the both of us.  By the end, I was sweating from wrestling with a wiggly Jack.  Argh.  By the time we got outside and walked to the park, the wind picked up and poor Jack could barely walk because the snow was too high.  It was a fun 10 minutes.  As usual, it was fun in theory, but realistically, yeah, not so much.  It was pretty when it first fell, but after that, well, it became a big mess around here.

I hope everyone else enjoyed their snow days!  We’re spending the day indoors since it’s too cold outside and Jack once again slept like hell–this time, a fever could be to blame.  It’s never a dull moment around here.

Another almost-snowy weekend

It was another cold and blustery weekend with plenty of snow storm warnings and preparation, but alas, no snow storm was found—at least in our neighborhood.  Before the “storm” arrived, the three of us ventured over to Helmers for lunch and had a nice and hearty lunch. With no surprise, Jack’s fondness for spaetzle has grown as big as his appetite!  Just as we were leaving the restaurant, the snow started to fall.  We ended up with an inch and a half of the white stuff, but not nearly enough to satiate our craving for “one good snow storm.”

Even though we didn’t get ALL the snow the weather people predicted, we woke up on Sunday with icy conditions.  The three of us went out for a nice and cold walk, but it was a bit too slippery to really enjoy–everything was iced over.  From the sounds of it, the frozen weather isn’t going anywhere any time soon.  It looks like we’ve got even colder weather ahead of us this week.

Stay warm, all.

Snow day

Happy Friday, all.  I’m antsy today because they’re calling for a “substantial” amount of snow in our area today/tonight. Like a big kid, I stayed up late because I was so excited.  And like clockwork, I got up early–to the tune of 5am–not by choice!  From what the news was saying, it sounds like we could get a lot of snow or not much at all.  I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Normally, I’d be moaning about having to commute in it, but I’m actually anxious for the first time in a long time!  If we do, indeed, get snow Jack and I will strap on our snow boots and play with the other kids in the park!  I looove snow days! They’re even talking about a White Christmas in the tri-state area!  It’s definitely starting to look a lot like, well, Christmas!  Can you believe Christmas is less than a week away?  How did that happen?

Those of you that have to travel in this weather, be safe.
