Weekend Update: Buried

Those of us in the northeast portion of the U.S. are buried in snow. This weekend we got about 18 inches of the white stuff in one big dumping.

Nothing makes my kids happier.

Here they are in their fort that daddy helped them build by filling buckets up with snow. They were quite impressed.

Here's a view of the sidewalk in front of my neighbors house the day after the storm hit. My husband was snowblowing and snowblowing but it was hard to keep ahead of it. At times it was coming down 3 inches an hour.

This is my mailbox. I'm trying to bury it completely just to piss off my mail carrier. Regular readers know that she deems my mailbox undeliverable on a regular basis. Wonder what she thought of

This is middle G during the storm. She spent a good while on the porch catching snowflakes.

Here's all three of them before it started snow hard. I know it's hard to believe but this was mild compared to when it really started to snow.
The weekend went well, though I forgot my in-laws were coming. That was a little shocker on Friday. Then they got stranded here during the blizzard. They actually thought they were going to drive home (three hours) in that snow. It was difficult enough on Sunday.
I got almost all of my wrapping done and I am feeling pretty ready for Christmas.
How about you? What did you do this weekend?

We also were snowed in, our first winter here, nice welcome huh? We got over two feet and little miss was NOT a fan since when we took her out at the beginning it was above her knees and she could not move. We relaxed, read, crafted, baked, and baked some more!

Great snow pictures... love the tongue sticking out in the last one. Your posts always make me smile if not laugh out loud. So... was your mail deliverable? Loved the bucket fort too. Does the cold make you wish for the wonderful, wet camping days.... just kidding.....It's great to get back and catch up with everyone. This weekend we enjoyed weather like this... It was -2 when we woke up and the high was going to be 1. Wow. That's friggin' COLD! Jingle Bells, Janis

That's a lot of snow. Glad it's not so cold that they can't enjoy it! Merry Christmas.

I love your campaign against the mail lady!!! HAHA!

And wasn't this snow nuts? I like your bucket idea ... I'll have to try that ... though I totally hurt my neck by shoveling improperly. Perhaps we will invest in snow blower.

oh wow! How fun! Those are such great pictures of all the snow. I can't stand snow or the cold for that matter but I know the children LOVE it. It makes me a little bit sad that my girls will never be able to build a neat fort like that!
