Let it Snow

This past Wednesday, we had a snowstorm!  We got about 8 inches of snow in about 6 hours.  It was really heavy, wet snow that was great for snowballs!  Lots of schools and offices were closed Thursday and I couldn't make it out of our apartment complex for work.  I took a snow day and Ben went in late once the roads were cleared.  Even though it wasn't a lot of snow, the news reports said that the damages/power outages were more than the three blizzards from last year combined!  Some roadways became gridlocked and it took some people over 12 hours to get home!  There were all kinds of stories about people being stuck in their cars or simply just abandoning them and walking home.  My work let us out early Wednesday so I made it home safely and Ben works just a few miles away so he left early too.

Here are some pictures of the snow.

 This tree was leaning quite heavily over our cars.  Thankfully it didn't break as a lot of other branches did.

Riley absolutely loves the snow.  

Catching snowballs

She likes to stick her whole head and upper body into the snow and army crawl through it.
