Blizzard of 2014

Well, they had been predicting it...people were going crazy...shelves at the stores were literally empty of everything from toilet paper to bananas to lettuce.    Well, they were did come.

It started on Sunday, January 5 ...and it didn't stop for almost 24 hours!   It was a beautiful day of snow and a perfect day to play outside.  The snow was perfect for snowman building.   We had a great time playing out in the snow for a couple hours.

We went back out later that night and it had gotten surprisingly colder...and surprisingly more quiet.   

And what happened after that....a full week off of school for Seth and Grant...Andy just had Monday-Wednesday off.  It got really cold...and the roads drifted and we got more snow.

We didn't venture out Monday or Tuesday...except to the backyard to get some snow to make snow ice cream.

Wednesday we went to the office to check on it and grabbed lunch at McDonalds.  The roads were still a little slick..and it was still COLD!

Andy had delay on the boys and I went to the Y and then sledding with some neighbors.  The chill had gone away and it was beautiful.

Then...on Friday we stayed home and cleaned house!   It was a crazy week...a whole extra week of Christmas break.    Fortunately...we stayed warm...had plenty of food...and the kids only fought 47 times each day.
