A Winter Storm Wonderland

We woke up to metric-crap-ton of snow today and it just keeps on coming down.  Even though I know this much snow is going to be a pain in the buns when it comes to getting around town, I have to admit that I'm loving it because it feels like Christmas!!!!  Last year we barely got any snow at all and the year before we were buried from November until March in nearly three feet of the the stuff.  So yes I love it now, I just hope the snow stays around at a cute level and not a nuisance level :)

Speaking of not getting a lot of snow last year, the kiddos seems really surprised by the big puffy piles of snow today since they really didn't see it at all last year.

It took Sadie a minute to set foot in it (it's her third winter) but then it was like she'd been shot out of a cannon!  She just loved bounding through the snow!
Sadie sure loved it but our other little guy Rocco... not so much.  You can see that he pretty much stood in place as Sadie ran laps around him (notice the arrow pointing at Sadie running by in a blur).
I guess Rocco prefers this kind of stroll in the snow.  Works for me since he hates being held otherwise, ha!
The National Weather Service said that we should expect 8-12 inches of snow to stick around and some totals could be up to 16 inches!  Yikes!
For now I am just going to appreciate the beauty of it, tomorrow might be another story :)

If you are local, what do you think of the snow?  Love it?  Hate it?

Anyone else play in the snow today???

  1. I love reading your post, my youngest daughter lives in Minneapolis. I try to come visit her at least once a year (in the summer..hahaaaa) I love Minneapolis and I always try to look at your blog before I go so I can find some cool places to go with her. I was wondering is Bachmann's are doing their Holiday House this year? I always like looking at the pics of what they do they are so creative! Keep up the great work on your house and blog I really enjoy it!

  3. Im a little jealous of your snow! I live in Ohio, which usually gets plenty of snow, but we had a mild winter last winter and have had another one so far! It's been 50 and raining! Id much rather take the pretty snow over the muddy mess we have right now!

  6. We're south of you in Decorah Iowa and we've got snow too. Luckily, we didn't get as much as you folks did. I don't mind the snow as long as it doesn't get too deep and I can get out and go to town(we live in the country)without risking life and limb on slippery roads.
    And I agree with you...the snow DEFINITELY makes it feel like Christmas!

    1. Yea, when the roads are unbearable it is no fun. My morning commute is kind of long now but hopefully in a couple days it won't be as bad!
