I’ve had a love-hate relationship with the snow this week. Sunday saw another storm deliver a foot of the white stuff, knocking out our internet connection in the process. The wet, heavy snow took out a huge tree branch, which in turn took out our incoming cable.
Then, Monday saw our third snow day.
No school and NO INTERNET!!
We survived (thank goodness for my phone and DVDs!), and I have to give a shout out to Verizon who sorted out a new cable from the street to our incoming panel, and got us up and running again on Tuesday morning. *whew*
With my husband away on business all week, any shoveling required fell to me. So I spent the first part of the week hoping there would be no more snow (I could barely move my arms by the end of Monday)… Sadly, it snowed overnight on Wednesday, and 6.30 Thursday morning saw me shoveling the driveway so that we could get to school!
I fell out of love with the snow in a big way towards the end of the week, but after a deep breath I reminded myself how much the kids love it and how beautiful it can be. Especially when the sun shines.
A big melt is setting in now, so the kids are making the most of their time left with the snow. Who knows if we’ll get anymore this season, but at least we’ve done quite well so far!
The snow can be inconvenient. In a BIG way. But, it feels like proper winter. January with its mild weather and rain just wasn’t right. I’d have been quite sad if we hadn’t seen any decent snow.
Having said that, we’ve had our fair share now!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely week. Head over to my Instagram feed to see the rest of this week’s 365 photos…
