Wild Weather

We got tons of snow on Saturday, about 2 feet! As crazy as that sounds, we are supposed to get ANOTHER foot of snow (or more!) tomorrow night. I thought you might like to see some snow pics. Unfortunately, the kids are not in the pics. I had to take the photos while the baby was napping and by that time, the kids had all dispersed to play in the snow.

Cars covered in snow across the street.

The sidewalk in front of our house.

Cars on the other side of the street. My husband was the first one to dig-out his car. If you wait too long, there is nowhere to ditch the snow and then you end up shoveling, carrying the snow 10+ paces until you can dump it into someone's yard. NOT fun.

We had a gravity-defying snowdrift on our roof. The wind was blowing so much that it pushed the snow over the edge of the roof. It really was quite spectacular to see.

Here's what the snowdrift looked like from the inside of the house. It was amazing to see all the layers of snow and to marvel at how it was hanging without sliding off.

To give it some perspective, I took a photo of the window/room so that you can see just how big this thing was.

It melted yesterday and fortunately, Emma was not standing beneath it when it fell.
