Snow Much Fun!

We had what was hopefully our last snowstorm yesterday! 

I do love snowstorms, as long as I'm safe inside my house and have nowhere to go, but I am so ready for Spring!

I wasn't quite sure if we were going to get all the snow they predicted.  When I went to bed just before midnight on Tuesday, all was calm and clear.  At 5 AM, my phone rang, letting me know that school was canceled for the day. 

I looked out the window and it was as if we were in the middle of a snow globe.  It was beautiful and eerie at the same time.  There is something so magical about being (safely) in the midst of a storm.

Grant attempted to go to work, but ended up turning around and returning home.  By 9:30 AM, we had 8 inches of snow! 

It looked so beautiful outside, but I didn't make it out in time to take pictures of all the trees weighed down by snow. 

Around noon, the kids bundled up and ran outdoors.  I went out to snap a few pictures of the kids in action.  By that point, half of the snow had already melted and it was warm outside!  The sun was so bright you could barely see. Before long, the kids took off their hats and gloves, and still complained about feeling too warm!

They had a great time trudging through the snow, sledding, and building a snowman!
