Buried

This is what it looked like out my front door this morning.

Update: 24 hours later


And this is what the cul-de-sac in front of my house looked like this morning.

It’s just beginning. We are supposed to get as much as 20” more by tomorrow morning. They experts are saying it may be the biggest storm in over a decade. Christine is at a retail tradeshow in Vegas and supposed to arrive home tonight, but I’m not holding my breath.

Have you ever been trapped alone in a house with a 2 and 4 year old?

It is pretty fun unless I try to do anything non-kid related and then all hell breaks loose. I’m looking for a good blog post in this somewhere.

Have a good weekend, everyone.

  1. That looks like my neighborhood this morning! I took a picture, too, but it’s hard to see anything. The snow isn’t coming down as hard now, maybe I’ll try again.

    Wait until your kids are older, you can send them out to shovel!

  2. The pictures remind me of my youth in Two Harbors. We don’t seem to get any snow here in Norfolk, VA. I’m actually a little jealous.

    If my black lab mix could recognize pictures, he’d be even more jealous.

  3. Maybe you’ll have some time to teach the kids a thing or two about personal development, or blogging, or put them to work shoveling so mommy can come back! If not, you can always flip over a garbage can top and send them on their way.

  4. And that is exactly why I live in Atlanta. The day I moved south from Philadelphia we had three feet of snow on the ground and I couldn’t wait to leave!

  5. Yeah, Dallas just isn’t quite looking this way. Where do you live anyway?

    Steve, enjoy the beautiful scenery. I grew up with lots of snow as a kid, and the 110 degree summers have been, well, interesting.

    And in other news… All this week was a very pleasant 70 degrees here in Dallas. But, we did just have a cold front come through and we’re looking at a FRIGID 40 degress this morning. Brrrrrr! πŸ™‚

    Have an awesome day!

  6. Hehe … we were almost trapped in a cabin under the same conditions last weekend in Tahoe. Our first reaction was to say “well, we’re not going anywhere today” (We were supposed to vacate the cabin that morning.) But when the weather report said that the storm was going to last a couple more days, we decided to boogie and do what it took to get out of there. Ended up taking 14 hours to travel what should have taken 5 hours to get home.

    Good luck handling the little ones.

  7. Hey Steve — after running crazy with multiple tornado responses down south, I’ll take being snowed in with my 2-year-old and 4-year-old.

    But only for a day.

  8. That looks like Sweden…. πŸ™‚ I’m not good at being inside all day so I head outside regardless of weather. The kids fortunately seem to feel the same way and really enjoy a little adventure.

  9. AD,

    I like to head outside too. I was raised in North Dakota which is similar in climate to Siberia. The wind and snow don’t frighten me. But I left my kids winter clothing at school, so couldn’t take them out. Well… I tried some makeshift winter gear for them, but that was a disaster. So we sat inside until Friday afternoon when I managed to get to their school and retrieve their winter gear. Ugh!

    Take care…
