We snapped these pictures Friday night as it was just starting and barely ventured out again until Sunday. I'm so glad we did, it was so quiet and the snow was gorgeous falling.
We grabbed dinner and drinks Friday night just as it was starting and thanks to the floor to ceiling windows we were able to enjoy watching while we were out. About an inch fell in that short time and the roads were completely covered so we made our two minute drive home and hunkered down. I baked some muffins for breakfast the next day, we facetimed friends who were also snowed in and enjoyed some cocktails. We knew the snow the next day would be over Stella's head so we took her out for a little playtime late before bed and I'm glad we did - the snow was coming down hard and it was such a pretty sight.
Saturday was the ultimate snow day - we ate all the snow food (muffins & quiche, grilled cheese & tomato soup and then some apps and potato soup for dinner), binge tv watched, napped, etc. We woke up like little kids running around to see all the snow that had come overnight - about a foot - we couldn't get out through our garage, deck door or back door so it was all up to the front door and with the snow drifts the snow was even piling up on our front porch! I caught myself many time just sitting and watching the snow heavily fall. The wind was outrageous with the snow flying e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. it was crazy.
Yesterday we finally got plowed out a bit but it was another day of being snowed in, enjoying the laziness and hanging out. We're on the go so much that we had the best time just being "stuck" at home and enjoying each other as well as being so lazy. Our foyer is a mess with old rugs and towels out, we lost Stella a few times out there because she's so little - Derek had to start just carrying her out to the street to potty and the snow would get matted in her fur so it took us forever to dry her each time but other than all that we've loved this whole blizzard thing. Stella was in heaven playing in the white stuff too.
This very well might be the biggest snow we have while we're in this house so I had to document all the "snow" pictures. Our neighborhood after plowing, Stella watching if fall and Derek and Stella taking a quick snow walk.
The snow drifts were insane - our deck has snow up to my neck in some parts, our covered front porch was even covered with snow and we quickly learned Saturday morning that we wouldn't be taking Stella out via the garage - this was just over a foot.
If the blizzard hit you this weekend, I hope you enjoyed it too and if not I hope you had a great weekend! Cheers to a new week and already a short one!
