We are lucky if we get more than a dusting of snow each year. Today we got 7-9 inches and the schools are closed tomorrow! My girls will have a 4 day weekend bec Monday is a teacher workday. We had fun building our first big snowman earlier this evening. :) [img/] [img/] [file/]

We woke up to more snow than we've ever seen before! The temps are now above freezing so it is already starting to melt. I wouldn't be surprised if it is all gone by the end of the day. Alot of our trees were hanging over due to the weight of the snow and several of the neighbors have broken limbs on their trees. I took TONS of pictures because I know this is not something we will see again in a long time, if ever! The girls have only been inside to eat and get a drink every now and then since it really isn't too cold to stay outside. I'm sure they will be soaking wet by the time they are ready to come in though!

Caitlin has had about 5 bloody noses since yesterday, but only 2 were more than 15 minutes long and I used Afrin to help stop them. I think the snow seems to be bringing them on and the fact that she is staying out so much isn't helping.

Enjoy! We are in Northern Virginia, outside of Washington, DC, and have almost 40 inches of snow on the ground from two major storms in the last week! This is incredibly unusual for us too and the kids are having a blast. Guess we should credit global warming?! Brady built an igloo/snow house in our front yard - I think it will still be there in April! We're ready for the kids to go back to school, though - they've only been to school two days in the last two weeks. We're all a little stir crazy, but going skiing this weekend, so that will help.

Hope yours doesn't melt too quickly!

We've had about two feet of snow in the past week and it is getting old. I wiped out on ice in an alley at work....actually kind of funny. I'm tired of stepping over mounds of snow!

40 inches! I can't even imagine!! We still have snow on the ground, surprisingly! Someone just drove by to take a picture of our snowman, lol! It will be a puddle by the end of the day, I'm sure. We're supposed to get up to 54 degrees today. But they're predicting maybe more snow tomorrow or later in the week! So bizarre! I do think I would get sick of "too much snow" though. It's no fun trying to keep our hardwood floors dry when the kids keep going in and out all day!

We moved up here from Texas in springtime - the boys got their taste of a "real" snow on Christmas Eve, when we had a blizzard [had to cook Christmas dinner in the fireplace, hot dogs] and we couldn't get out of our neighborhood for at least 7 days, can't remember how long it took us to shovel so we could just get out the door.

My family knows when you come in the door shoes/boots come off - no walking around with wet shoes :)

Enjoy it - I'm sure the girls have put away some good memories!
