The View From Here

These photos were taken at the height of our snowstorm on Wednesday...the second big snowfall in less than a week! We probably got another 18" to add to the 18" we got on the weekend. It is the first big snowfall that any of our boys really remember...we haven't had this much snow in PA since 1996!

the view up our street to the right

the view down our street to the left

you can see how much snow we had at this point by looking around the bottom of the van...we actually ended up with a lot more in the end!

this is a view of our deck, which was not cleared off between storms...it was taken through the screen, of course...I wasn't going out in that stuff!
School has been canceled since Wednesday. In our area we actually got less snow then Lancaster and York, a bit south of us. It really is amazing to see this much snow everywhere. I guess we were due after so many lean snow years. The boys have enjoyed playing in it, although it's been very cold, too, so it's not safe to be out for too long. Hope that, wherever you are, you have a warm and relaxing weekend!

Wow! That is A LOT of snow! My 3-year-old would love it. Me? Not so much. I think I prefer the sunshine... :)
