Last winter we had snow. A lot of snow! It went on forever and got very deep. So far this year we have had very little, but on Monday we woke to several inches. Perfect!
I thought we’d done everything we could with the snow. I also thought that it might be gone by now :) But, with a combination of childish enthusiasm and inventiveness, Lego man sledging was born.
Regular readers will know that we have had several feet of snow (somewhere around eight of them I believe…!) and we haven’t been able to go out into the back garden in about six weeks!
As I have trudged through this epic month of snow I have found myself thinking about perspective. A lot. As an adult navigating day to day life, with the added bonus of eight feet of snow, it can be hard to find the positive.
There is a point at which the snow gets too deep to build snowmen. You’d sink before you got the first roll in. So, what do you do?
Okay, I have to be honest. I am sick to death of the snow. Sunday into Monday saw yet another snow storm, bringing another foot of the stuff. By Tuesday (snow day number six…) we were all climbing the walls.
After last weeks snowman building antics, Blizzard Juno dumped two feet of snow on us. This gave us the opportunity for a different kind of fun in the garden. Have you ever seen kids trying to walk in snow that deep?!
I could dedicate a whole post just to the school run. To the chaos, the rushing, the nagging, the losing things, the forgetting things, the running late… It is my least favourite part of the day.
I suspect most of you are aware that the East Coast of the US has been hit by a lot of snow over the last week. It started out with a perfect amount last Saturday, before escalating into a silly amount courtesy of Blizzard Juno!
