Snow Storm (Blizzard?) 2009


Boy did we ever get our Christmas snow! It started around 9:30pm last night and hasn't stopped yet. (It's 24 hours later.) We have 20 inches and counting. We've shoveled our walks 4 times and went sledding!

Church is canceled tomorrow. Both airports are closed until 6am on Sunday. School in several counties have closed Monday and Tuesday already. 2 weeks off for Christmas for those kids! The METRO closed. Several of the highways are closed because of disabled vehicles and impassable roads. Wow...

We didn't go anywhere today and enjoyed the snow. Well, Juice and Butterfly and I did. The boys...not so much. I think their feet get cold. They don't have snow boots because it snows so rarely here I thought they didn't need them. Now maybe I should find them some.

Butterfly was in heaven though. She bound out of bed this morning and got dress all by herself. She was mad that we made her eat breakfast because she had her hat and coat and mittens on in the blink of an eye. She cried when we went inside, but then proceeded to strip off all 4 layers and was soaked to the bone. Cold girl!

This is how you get 4 people on 2 sleds and hopefully have fun. Except Professor in the back is not having any fun at all. Butterfly kept trying to pull Pirate around in our infant sled (thanks Lavender...this sled has been awesome for us through the years!) . She kept falling over and he would laugh hysterically. Professor had a short ride out to our tiny hill and then was done. He did not want to go anywhere out of Mommy's arms.
Soot also had a great time chasing the sled and enjoying the weather.

I love the snow so much! We wrapped all of our Christmas presents this afternoon so we are DONE for Christmas. I'm so excited to be able to just sit back and enjoy the rest of the season!


PS- Both boys have colds and Pirate coughed so hard he threw up all over me and Professor while he was trying to nurse for bed tonight. Ugh. Also, Butterfly had a nap time accident. Add to that all the wet and dirty (Juice) clothes from snow stuff today, I probably have 5 loads. Yuck.

PPS- Here is what it looked like at 8pm tonight.
There were people sledding off the pile of snow the plow put in front of our house. It's as tall as Juice is. Awesome!


  1. That's amazing! I hope you stay warm and cozy inside.

    My girls already had all of next week off. We always get 2 weeks. Your schools must be stingy with days off!!

  2. So jealous! I miss snow! I wish we'd get a good dump of snow here. Looks like it's going to be a green and rainy Christmas here . . .

  3. THANK YOU for posting pics!!! We've been watching the news here in CA and wondering HOW much snow actually fell in our area. WOW!!!! NOW I see why church is canceled!! Glad we flew out when we did though! As much I wish I was there to experience the blizzard, I am enjoying my 80 degree weather here! :) Enjoy the snow for us!!!

  4. These are great pics - the picture of the four on the sled looks like so much fun. I don't have any boots for the girls yet, either - I just plan on putting plastic bags over their socks before they put on their shoes.

    I hope Pirate feels better soon - I feel your pain! Laundry and twins must go hand in hand!
