As I stated in the previous post we had record setting snow here. At our house we had 12 inches of snow! I cleared off my car 3 different times yesterday and for only one of them did I measure the snow on the top of my car. There was 3 inches on there and that had only happened within just a few hours time.
Three Inches

Yesterday after Sam got home from school, while it was still pouring down snow, Sam and I went outside to play in it. We built a snowman, had a snowball fight and he started on his fort. Today he has been outside to play three different times! He can't get enough of it. Andy and I shoveled off our driveway and for quite some time we were the only cleared driveway. Those that were trying to shovel their driveways were using small shovels to campfire shovels. We quickly offered our snow shovels to them and they were very grateful and wondered how we had gotten them. Once we told them that we moved from the midwest and had lived even further north they understood. Some were shocked when I spoke to them yesterday that this was a normal winter day and that I actually have missed having this type of day. Here are some more photos for your enjoyment.

I wish I was there. I'd rather have snow than the miserable rain we've had here. Although this southern gal is getting cold just looking at the picture!

Go throw a snowball or two at Sam - tell him they're from me & David. :)

I love snow because I can let my kids play outside. But lately, the snow is not funny anymore. I can't help but prohibit my kids from playing outside.

I loved his fort! It looks like he had a blast in the snow. We had unusual amounts here last week as well. But, I am ready for it to go bye-bye now. Temps are supposed to be in the 40s this weekend, so hopefully it will do just that! :)
