Freezing greetings from Northern VA! We are hopefully at the tail end of what is being referred to as the Blizzard of 2010, Snopocolyse, Snomageddon,etc. Call it whatever you want… it’s a LOT of snow. While I hate to shovel, I do love how it brings everyone out of their homes to help dig out! My guys have been having a blast starting last evening when we told them we could go out and play in the snow when we actually should have been heading to bed! What fun! The best was when we brought snow balls (or boulders if you’re my middle child) into the bath tub to have a snow bath! The squeals were priceless and certainly worth the mess they created hauling them up the stairs!
This snow brought back some wonderful memories specifically as a child where my dad would pull me on a sled behind a tractor to the top of a wonderful sledding hill and of my days at Gettysburg College where I spent 2 fantastic snowstorms! If I could find the pictures I would post them but I will say that the pictures are still in my mind and for that I am very greatful! Long gone are those carefree days but the memories remain! Thank you Blizzard of 2010 for the beautiful walk down memory lane and for the fantastic new moments which will also be re-played in my mind for as long as I live!
This snow at last measurement was about 26 inches and counting! The snow was too deep for baby Tuck so if you are wondering where he is, he has not been lost in the mountain of snow but rather he is sleeping peacefully while the snow continues to fly outside! We will take take him out when the snow stops and use him as a measuring tool for the final count!!! Stay tuned!
