Snow! (again)

Remember how I told you back in December that it doesn’t snow in Maryland?  Well, I lied!  We have been hammered with snow this year.  It all started with the snow I wrote about here.  At the time, that was the biggest snow I had seen since we moved to Maryland 3 1/2 years ago.  Only a few weeks after that we had an even bigger storm that dumped about  2 feel of snow at our house.  It took us a few days to dig out and left schools closed for three days.  We have had a few other smaller storms over the past few weeks that left a few inches here and there.  It snowed about 4-5 inches last weekend, it snowed on Tuesday night enough to cancel school on Wednesday.  I began to hear that this weekend we were going to get another storm  and it could be a “big deal.”  It began snowing at 10 AM on Friday morning and didn’t stop until 4 PM on Saturday.  We lost power over night for several hours.  It was getting so cold that we decided to bring Hannah into our bed so that she would stay warm.  I was worried that we would have to spend all day with no power but fortunately at 7 AM we heard our heat come back on!  We stayed inside all day and watched the snow come down.  I think we have about 30-35 inches out there.  Kyle has shoveled enough to get the car out so that he can get to work tonight.  I will be playing with Hannah at home since schools are closed Monday and Tuesday.  More snow is expected on Tuesday night so we will see how the rest of the week turns out.  Did I mention I’m ready for our trip to Florida?  Only a few more weeks!

Hannah loved playing in the snow.  She kept wanting to go in the drifts.  She wasn’t ready to come inside!   IMG_3736IMG_3735 IMG_3737 IMG_3738 IMG_3739 IMG_3740 IMG_3742  Lhotse and Hannah standing by a drift.IMG_3744  Helping Dad dig out.  See how far he had to dig?  All the way out to the road- and in this picture he was already about 2/3 of the way there.IMG_3747

Hannah insisted on walking the entire way from the garage to the house.  Kyle had to help hold her up.  This is the next thing we need to shovel out- a path!    IMG_3751IMG_3750



Hannah saw Lhotse up on this pile of snow and wanted up there with her!
