Second & Third Winter Storms 2015

This last week brought us a little more winter weather with more snow than ice.  Although we didn't get as much snow as we hoped, we are now satisfied with winter (except I didn't get any snow cream) and can move on happily to Spring.  On Tuesday, we got about 2 inches of soft, powdery snow.  It didn't really affect the roads so Evan still had school that day.  Brody enjoyed playing in the snow a little bit before it melted away.  On Wednesday night, we were expecting to get hit by a bigger snow storm with the potential for at least a half a foot of snow.  Unfortunately, the biggest part of the snow hit further north of us, and we got some snow and then rain and then snow again so our portion was very wet and melted away pretty quickly.  Evan did get to stay home from school on Thursday so we tried to take advantage of the opportunity to do a little sledding.

He got out to experience the snow while it was still falling.

Uh oh, I wonder who that snowball was for.

Our backyard with a nice white covering...makes it look a lot better than the wet mess it has been most of the winter.

Daddy managed to build us a little snowman on a patio chair.  I had made a decent looking one on top of our car, but it fell over before I could get a picture.

And at least we got one decent family picture in the snow this year.

  1. I love how excited you get about snow. I'm so sorry you didn't get snow cream this year. And yes, all our snow got covered in freezing rain so even though we have a ton, it's VERY icy. And I hope your snow is all gone by the time we get there :)

  2. Ha ha! Now that Mattox is here it's funny to see you pregnant again. It's like Mattox has always been part of your family.

    Glad you got some snow if only to get a good, snowy family picture!
