my day

The official evening WH front lawn measurements averaged out to 17.5". So insane for Fredericksburg. I wonder how long it will take them to plow our street... I'm so glad our major shoveling is over - I'm so sore! Still it was a good day. Made my first ever beef stew, watched Daddy lose his shoe in a snow bank (highlight of my day) and ended it all sewing silk taffeta, sipping champagne and eating See's candy (thanks to the perfect, though unknown, timing of my dear M!).

All in all it occurs to me that it's no bad thing to be snowed in. :>

:) Glad it's not so bad...wish we could get a snow day around here--without all the shoveling ;)

Yeah snow in a place that isn't used to or prepared for it is much more fun I have to say. 'Cause really if it snows you should get the day off right? :>

Sounds like a great end to the day!

We've barely begun over here, the task is so overwhelming it's hard to know where to start!

Yeah I was thinking about you a lot this weekend! Our 17.5" seems like a lot - hard to image almost double that!

Wow! So much snow! It's only when you see the clear black road you realise quite how much snow must have been on top of it!!
And that has got to be the best use of unwanted snow, I bet it made the Champers taste even better :o)

Yeah! We did it the smart way though, shoveling several times throughout the storm. I can't imagine shoveling the whole 17.5" in one go - I'd be crippled right now - especially since we had a layer of sleet near the bottom. I feel sorry for our neighbors who didn't shovel along the way... not enough to help them though! :>

Yep, it worked marvelously for the bubbly!

Kitty does not look happy! Poor thing.

Sounds like a lovely snow day! (Mmm...See's...)

No she was not! She really hates the snow!

It's looks beautiful but I'm sure it is a pain to live with.

Yeah, pretty much!
