Blizzard Conditions

I actually remember the blizzard of '78, and it's funny that is how they are comparing this snowfall. I was in kindergarten, and my dad built me this huge snow fort in front of our house with tunnels and slides. The big slide went all the way up to the roof. There was a drift that covered the entire front of the house, and we had to go in and out the back door. This snow doesn't seem that bad to me. We got about 13 inches, but supposedly more is on the way. Schools are closed, and no one is going anywhere. I'm just happy we didn't get ice. Erick helped shovel out cars, and the dog had a blast playing in the snow with the other neighbors' pets.

I took Piper outside to play. She's been out in the snow before, but she wasn't too sure about it today. She definitely was not happy about falling over because it was so hard to walk.

Here is what she wore outside. She looked like the abdominable snowman, and reminded me of the weather commercial from channel 13 years ago.

This is the video montage of all the pictures and videos I took outside. If you are reading this on Babycenter, make sure you click on my blog link, otherwise you can't see the video.

Looks like tons of fun! We got about 5 inches last night and I was definitely looking forward to letting Jaxin play in the snow after I got home from work, but then we got freezing rain before I got home. Now everything is covered in ice. Poor little guy hasn't had the chance to play in snow yet! We either don't get enough, it melts before I get off work, or it's iced over.
