I, as well as most, love a good snow day.  Ours started out sweetly.  With our little Ellee bringing up some strawberry smoothies that she made herself.  I love the pride she has in serving and considering others.  She’s wonderful.

I walked downstairs to my two loaves of Wonder bread and considered ways that I might use them up over the next few days.  Thankfully, while we did get quite a bit of snow, we didn’t lose electricity and things are looking rather okay.

The views from our windows were beautiful.  But they didn’t quite satisfy our need to fully appreciate our blizzard.

So we bundled up and headed outdoors.  It’s always funny to me how it takes a good hour or so to get ready and then we end up only being out for about a half hour.  It’s a labor of love, I suppose.

It was pretty cold out.  But we were pretty prepared.

We got out around noon, and everything was still quite beautiful and sparkling white.

It didn’t take too long for the plows to come through, leaving high mounds of snow on either side of Montauk Highway.

We had about two feet of snow in most places in our yard.

Ellee got to work, making snow angels and giggling all the way.

Whereas Christian was content to plop himself down on a throne of snow and just take it all in.

Our street has yet to be plowed.  But I’m confident that help will come soon.  A neighbor down the road made it out with his Tahoe, but it will be nice when we get something a little more official going.  And I’m curious to know if the kids will have school tomorrow though, because even though the main road is looking better, it’s still only driven by the occasional truck which makes me think that most people are still stuck at home.

It seems like a plow must have gone through at some point last night but there was still a considerable mount of snow to work through.

My handsome husband did a fantastic job shoveling out our car.

So I took a few pictures of him while he was doing it.

Because snow shoveling pictures with beautiful fluffy snow just look cool.

So that’s that.  We’re doing well for the most part, with our loaves of bread and a few paths shoveled so we can at least get out of our yard.  This afternoon will be spent relaxing, cleaning and learning a bit.  Ellee has a fun computer program she will start working on, Jeremy ventured over to the church to get some work done, and Christian got invited over to a friends house up the road.  They walked down to meet him and we’ll have to figure out how to get him back home in a bit.  Thanks so much for checking in, all is well and calm, after the storm.
