Snow Day

Like the rest of the eastern US, here come the snow photos.

No school today (very rare in this town). Doug worked from home too. We measured a good 14" around the house, but there were definite areas where wind blew it higher. The snow was heavy and wet. It stuck to the trees in a beautiful way. Walked up the hill to play with friends. Hot chocolate with peppermint flavored Christmas marshmallow Peeps! Homemade broccoli soup for dinner.

It's as quiet as it looks.

Until the kids come out to play.


They are getting so grown up. Both my kids are now "double digits".

Renee with her friend G. You can see the snow falling and the wind blowing.

Thanks for clearing the steps, Jack.


Love how this snow sticks to the trees.

Doug measures the late afternoon accumulation.

And remember this little light brown cow:


Here she is less than a year later...

Hope you are having a fun and restful snow day too.

Wow, that is a lot of snow! I love your daughter's hat, the colors are great :)

My mom knit the hat with a matching scarf. She's a prolific and beautiful knitter. You can see some of her other work in this post:
