This is old news now but here is our first real storm of 2016. 15 inches when all was said and done. The top photo is what I came home to on Saturday January 23rd. It is typical that all the snow blows up against the door. There may be 4-6 on the ground but looks like 2 feet on the stoop.
You can see Sunday it brightened up and the kids came home from Dad's early as Ava was sick. Unfortunately once the driveway was shoveled her and I were headed to the Doctor and then the ER.
Kids are funny. Although she had a doctor's note to be out for a few days she was "bored" in no time so we strapped on our snow shoes, me for the first time, and we tromped around the back yard just so I could try mine out.
She agreed on a quick adventure and we hiked out to the Knob. I left her at this rock below to rest while I hikes to the end. I was trying to meet my 1 mile quota for the Winter Warrior.
Luckily the meds worked fast so she was feeling better and back to school by Wednesday. We even managed to get some more snow fun in before it disappeared and temps soared up to almost 50.
Crazy place we live but I'm not complaining.
