In a fit of hopefulness that spring might finally be around the corner, I thought it was time to do a little catch up on our winter!
After the snow in January, our next major snowfall happened in February. One day we were walking at Breakheart Reservation in the sunshine and the next we were sledding after six inches of snow fell over night!
My husband and younger son created an epic sled run starting at the highest point of the garden and snaking all the way down to the driveway. A lot of fun was had!
Then March happened.
The first storm brought rain and winds, bringing trees down and knocking power out for many. The second storm brought a significant snow fall, and a lot of heavy wet snow which caused more damage to trees. Including those in our garden.
Thankfully, none of the downed tree branches damaged anything, and for this storm my husband was actually here. Not always the case when it comes to snowstorms. And wasn’t for the next one, as it happens!
There was plenty of snow to play with, the kids got a snow day, and everything was back to normal by the following morning.
My little girl would spend all day in the snow if she could, begging to go out from the moment she wakes up. I draw the line if the snow is coming down particularly heavily, but otherwise, out she goes.
The cold doesn’t seem to bother her, and she always looks ridiculously happy sitting the snow.
The snow is beautiful, especially against blue skies, but I do hope that we have had our last snow fall of the season. Our final storm was a crazy one, with 20″ of snow (photos to follow in Part 2!), and I think we’ve had enough snow now.
Spring better hurry up and arrive!
I began writing ‘Snapshots’ posts last summer, when my days were too busy having fun with my kids to spend time writing about the fun we were having. They are a way for me to record the moments, but not feel obliged to write War and Peace. Simply capture the days as they happen. No SEO, no pinnable images, no stress. So, I’m going to continue to write them, and keep those moments from running away.
