Blizzard Dig Out

As a full sized adult, have you ever stepped in snow that came up over your knees? Well, it was a first for me!


After getting blasted last week with over 2 feet of show, we received another similar snowfall only 4 days later. We've now broken the record of the most snowfall since they began recording snowfall in 1885. Pretty cool, eh?

The last record snowfall was in 1995. I remember it well, because it was the most snow I'd ever seen in my entire life. Being from the south, we rarely experienced white stuff and I remember being impressed and bewildered about what to do. My dogs were perplexed as well. I wonder if Clyde remembers. Because he was about two years old at the time.

Anyway, here's a few snapshots I took with my pocket camera as we were trying to keep up with the digging.



It was still snowing while we were digging. And after we were done, we strolled down the lane. Snow was blowing towards our back on the way down the lane...but on the way back, it was an icy sting right onto our faces.

In order to get the shots, I couldn't use the flash and it was near dark when we decided we better start. (We were hoping it would stop first)

Here's a shot using the flash. It reminded me of the chicken house last year when I forgot to turn off the flash and realized all the YUK in the air....BUT this was a much nicer to experience.


I have more pictures to show. I'm having such a hard time keeping up with all I need to do. Too many balls in the air! One or two of them being SNOWBALLS.

Wow - thanks for sharing about all that snow! I've never seen more than about an inch or two of snow on the ground (and we had to drive up for the weekend to even see that!)

I like the snowflake shot -- sometimes flash is a good thing!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
