Technically, it's already snowed this year, but nothin' like this!
There was much rejoicing in my home this morning when we saw the snow. That is, until we realized the kids have no snow boots (looks like we'll be going shopping this afternoon!), and Brandon had to shovel the driveway and sidewalks (which are covered again already; looks like I'll be shoveling here, soon!). Ah, well. Luckily, we already have a carpool, so #1 and #2 didn't have to walk to school in the snow (and I didn't have to drive!).
To be perfectly honest, I know I'd rather be in California right now with cold rain, but the snow is gorgeous. And it's Christmastime! Snow and Christmas go together, so I probably won't complain about the snow until January. Unfortunately, the snow around here usually lasts until April, so prepare yourselves for a lot of whining come spring...
Here is our backyard as of 9:05AM this morning:
Here is a view from our front porch:
These are from the bushes in our front yard (the ones in the previous picture):
Oh, and for those of my friends in Oregon who were recently given snow days because of one measly little inch of snow? Yeah, you're a bunch of wimps! It's nothing personal --just sayin'. :)
