Blizzard of 2015: The Aftermath = 2 Snow Days for the Boys

blizzard2015_1This is what I woke up to on Tuesday morning. So much snow and the snow didn’t stop until another 24 hours. I admit, the first sight is so beautiful. It’s so white and perfect since it is untouched.

blizzard2015_2Then reality set in when I got my boots on and headed out to shovel the walkway and clear the cars and found that the wind had pushed the snow onto your enclosed deck!  This photo is from the inside. Oh and yes, that is a halloween banner hanging from the flag pole. Nope, I didn’t get around to changing it…Don’t judge.

So I had to shovel off the deck with Leao before we headed out to our clean up work outside.

blizzard2015_6The boys loved having two snow days. Yesterday we let them go explore in the snow and they took the opportunity to use the pile of snow from the plowing to slide.  Leao even joined in to show them how it’s done!


The boys played until I bribed them with goodies to come inside.


They loved playing in it and Apollo especially loved laying and rolling in it. Which made me cold watching him but I knew he was having fun.


Apollo’s already asking when he can play out in it again. I told him school today but maybe tomorrow after school for a bit. I had to drink two cups of tea and crawl under my blanket with my heating pad to shake off the chills. But I do love looking at it so much. So I will try to keep my complaints to a minimum.

Have a blessed day my friends.





  1. It really does look pretty and the boys look like they’re having a blast!
