Just keep snowing

So, the snow started coming down steadily on the 8th of February and they have officially named the snow storm Nemo (when did they start naming snow storms?).  The kids were released from school early and the neighborhood moms were busy getting last minute jobs done before the school bus arrived.  It snowed steadily and the ground was covered, but it was hard to believe that the worst of the snowfall wasn't due until after midnight.  The hubs was actually  planning to stay up for part of the night to see the blizzard with his own eyes.  I on the other hand was intent on getting some zzz's.  I felt sure that the we would lose power overnight and that  R and I would be finding our way out to the detached garage to get the generator out, started and hooked up.  All the while, leaving three littles inside to watch with flashlights.

Thankfully, for the first time, we kept power all night and woke to a winter wonderland.  The snow was just perfect and our kids played, sledded and ate snow all day.  I was actually totally shocked at the amount of snow that we got..22.1 inches.  I never would have guessed it.  After a tiring day, we settled in for some yummy hot chocolate and a cozy fire...ahhh.

Here are some of the shots from the February 8th

It's coming down good!
There isn't even a walkway to be found
Look at that snow on the deck
Tubing at our neighbors house
Fresh snow!
This was perfect for those tired little bodies
