Over the past week we’ve had record snowfalls, and more snow on the ground than I can remember since moving here in 2005. We’ve canceled Wednesday night church services two weeks in a row, and Eva now has a working knowledge of seeing school cancelations online. I woke up today to even more snow and thought it was a good time for some pics. Next time, I’ll wear snow pants as I’m uploading these in my boxers. Wet jeans. ch:

MAKING TRACKS: I didn’t realize just how much snow was in our yard until I stepped into it. And it was even with my belt. I laughed.

DON’T MIND ME: Eva dawned her snow gear and immediately fell down, just in time for me to snap a pic.

FOLLOW ME: The trail we’ve been nursing for the last week now looks like a run to an arctic observatory. Just add rope.

CHAINS ONLY: We tend to gauge or snow fall by how much of the swing set is showing. This morning set a new record. (And this was in a drift trough, too).

TIME OUT: Luik decided to follow my footprints to a place where I was shooting. He got tired out and leaned over for a little rest.

STRANDED: Jenny flung a stray Cozy Coup into the driveway last night. Found it like this at dawn.

WHERE’D YOU GO?: Our CUV (Child Utility Vehicle) got some snow on its ears.

HIP DEEP HOUSE: Luik emerges from the warmth of our nest.

BLANKET ANYONE?: The snowman the kids made got scared and threw a blanket over his head.

SNOW GRILL: For all my Aussie friends: a pic of the barbie, situated on the leeward side of the house (aka where the least amount of snow falls).

Snow Snow white and fluffy – but now it’s past my duffy!!!!!!! Goodness we haven’t seen snow like this either – Amazing how much there is but when you melt it – really not all that much water- kinda reminds me of the spiritually immature lots of fluff not alot of substance( living water ) …my thoughts are drifting…..LOL

Just got back from White Face and there was soo much snow there!!! Great for snowboarding, though. But when we got home last night, there was even more than when we left. This year seems like the most snow we’ve gotten in a long time. And its all so beautiful. 🙂

    I agree! Most snow I’ve seen up here. White Face? Dang. I’m jealous.

      That’s the redneck word(D***).

        Christopher Hopper · 13 Feb ’11 at 2:45 pm

        You got it!

          Erica · 14 Feb ’11 at 12:19 pm

          My dad is a self-proclaimed redneck. That’s how I know.

Hillary Hopper · 12 Feb ’11 at 10:38 pm

Wow, such a cute little recap of the snow. Though I’ll be honest, I don’t miss that weather one bit!

    I couldn’t even move the bail of hay today. Unreal.
