This Is What The Snow Storm Looked Like At My House

I love the state-mandated downtime of a New England snow emergency!  Yesterday, we watched the storm build and hung out in our pajamas all day. Last night, I read and watched movies in front of the fire. This morning, I woke up late to a storm still raging.

Now that it is over, things have gotten a little busy around here…

We couldn’t get out this way (I am so glad I fixed the screen!)…


…and we could barely get out this way…


…but Luna really needed to get out, so she dove right in…


…and went for a swim on the snow!


She watched the neighborhood shovel out of the storm…


…and enjoyed the tunnels I made to get to the places I needed to go….


…like the chicken coop, which got a little extra insulation!

    Wow..looks like my neighbourhood here in southern Ontario. No snow day for us city folks; but luckily it was my day off and I too made the best of it with movies by the fireplace.Luna seems like my dog Bandit; I swear he was a mailman in another life, as he still wants to go for his walk regardless of the weather. It ‘is’ rather pretty when you’re cozy warm inside looking out.

      Hahaha! Your dog sounds great! I am glad to hear you were able toe njoy the storm. It is still so pretty out, but driving on the narrow streets is a little treacherous. I plan to stay in or walk as much as possible!!!

    Wow, sooooooo glad you posted these! That is A LOT of snow, Gaaaaaaaaaal! How much did you officially get? That is some HARD work shoveling that snow! I remember from ol’ Indiana!!! Whew! Sure wish we could have been with you for all of it, yum city!!!!!!!!

      There is no place to put all the snow!!! Shoveling is quite a trick because you have to throw the snow up over the big mounds and the snow often sticks to the shovel so that you have to tap it on the ground to get it off – making the job three times as much work. Someone should invent a heated snow shovel!!!

  3. Glad to know you are fine! It’s so lovely to look at. We haven’t had any snow this winter, and I’m guessing that now we won’t. Would kinda like (love) a state-mandated jammie day.

      Thanks, Rita! We have had a mild winter so far too, so don’t put that snow shovel away yet! There is some kind of New England tradition the kids all follow about sleeping with their pajamas inside out and putting spoons under their pillows to bring on snow days. Maybe all of the work my middle son has been doing has finally paid off!

        Ok, I am a born and raised new englander and have never before heard of spoons or inside out pajamas. Are you sure this hasn’t been picked up from your travels or invented by a member of your family??

          16 spoons and the subsequent Nemo storm. ‘Nuf said.
