Blizzard of 2009!

Well, this was the storm of the decade!!  I don't think I've ever seen so much snow....well, that I can remember anyway!  We managed to get out Friday night to buy Andrew's Christmas present, so we got that out of the way.  Good thing too!  I don't think it would've been smart to drive to 7 Corners at any point this weekend.  Crazy drivers!!!  Lee got a few pictures of the craziness outside.  I stayed warm and baked some cookies and wrapped some presents!

Here are the measurements Lee took throughout the day......

7:45 Saturday morning

10:30 Saturday morning

12:15 Saturday afternoon

3:30 Saturday afternoon

The final tally was 22", but we didn't get it on camera!!

Farley LOVED playing in the snow on the deck....we even threw a treat out there to see what he would do.  Well, he dug for it and found it.  He's a dog, what else would he have done????

All in all, the weekend was filled with a lot of resting (for me anyway).  Lee shoveled us out on Saturday morning and went to the store because we wanted to make homemade roasted tomato soup and grilled cheese for lunch!  So, off he went!  Visability was horrible and the roads were treacherous, but the store is only 1/4 mile from the house, and it was no match for the Element!  Best car for the snow.  It really is great!!

Yesterday, he spent most of the day shoveling us out - again - and then headed over to mom and dad's to shovel them out as well. 

Before the shoveling commenced, we watched "Gran Torino".  If you haven't watched it....DO SO NOW!  What a fantastic movie.  I am so happy we watched it because it was an amazing story.

Anyway, I hope everyone stayed warm and cozy this weekend!!!
