It flurried

For about 24 hours. And now it looks like this. Thankfully, we have power, which many do not, and we're able to get out if need be, though it's tricky since plowing around here has been absolutely abysmal.

And we're supposed to get 10 to 20 more inches tonight and tomorrow. I'm note sure where we're going to go with it all. As you can see, we already had to pile the snow about head-height. The DC area is pretty much infamous for its inability to deal with just a few inches of snow, so this should pretty much bring this area to a complete and utter standstill. I just heard that school is already canceled for the rest of the week. I'm sure the federal government isn't far behind.

We've been doing OK, though. We've made soup and cookies. I've been doing a lot of knitting. Zack really likes to go outside and shovel (Thanks again, Grandma, for getting him this coat and pants--we would have been lost this year without them!).

He's gotten the hang of his boots and the snow, and is walking around like an old pro.

When he's not outside (read: Mom and Dad are cold and want to go inside), he's busy coloring in his coloring books, or making installation pieces.

Here are my guys all snuggled up to watch the Super Bowl. Zack loves to watch football. I can't quite figure out where that comes from, but he didn't hesitate to jump up on the couch with his football, cover himself with a blanket, and ask for a cracker.

Now we're just sitting and waiting for the snow to start. The forecast said noon, but nothing yet. I would love for the weathermen to be wrong this time, but it's not looking promising.

We in southeastern Ct are getting the brunt of this storm, but just a few inches so far.You are getting much more. Let's hope the weather warms up and melts those mountains of snow, but no freezing at night, please!
