It's amazing what happens when a storm is due and your child prays for a snow day.
The majority of that snow fell on Sunday night.
It's the most snow I've seen fall in one night since we moved here 3 1/2 years ago.
It's hard to tell, but that "snow-woman" is buried up to her middle.
The kids are a good 6 inches into that snow.
Those would be the boulders out front.
It's hard to see where they end and the other snow begins, but I think you get the idea.
Yup, that's up to the bumper in front.
No, I haven't tried to get out yet.
That will be an adventure, won't it?
That would be the hood of the van, with Emily measuring the snowfall.
Another pretty good picture of snow accumulation on the chairs out by the trampoline.
For those of you who have been here, that's our backyard...right above the "cave".
You can't see any of the rocks out back.
The coverage of snow is beautiful...and so needed here in our "desert".
(It doesn't feel very desert-like today!)
There is more snow in the forecast.
Potentially through Thursday.
It was snow day #2 for the kids.
(They had Friday off too due to the 4 inches that fell then.)
They are a little restless and bored...
Stephen actually told me he was ready to go back to school tonight.
If tomorrow is a snow day, or a 2 hour delay day, I'll be looking for ideas of things to do.
In the snow, inside, wherever.
Here's to a substantial snowpack in our mountains this year!
