Snowpocalypse NC Style

It's been snowing non-stop for nearly 3 days now and we are all going stir-crazy. It's beautiful though! Walking in a real life winter wonderland! This is our street:

Giant tree outside our house:
I wish we had a ruler to actually measure how much snow we have. This is in the median on the street. Seems like we have way more in our backyard. At least a foot!

Now I know this picture looks like I'm sliding down...but I'm not. Back in my youth, when I visited Canada in the winter. My cousins and I would use garbage can lids to slide down the big hill in the schoolyard behind my aunt's house. When I picked this up to use it, Tom looked at me like I was a straight up idiot. Even the neighbor went..."Is that a garbage can lid!?" I rooted myself on screaming it would work throughout the day and now I'm left wondering how did we "sled" successfully all those times in Canada!?

The snow covered house:

In the backyard, nearly up to our knees in snow!

Missing the Florida sunshine!

Happy tree

Patapouf gets so excited once he's finally out of the house but then he starts shivering. Poor little dude had snow and ice dingleberries frozen solid to his leg hairs to the point where once we got inside he didn't want to move! I had to stick him in the bath tub and fill it with some hot water to melt them off!

Find the message!

Making snow angels:

What I didn't get were pictures of us sledding down the most epic hill in our neighborhood. You slide down that thing for nearly 2 minutes and then you spend 5-10 climbing back up until you can't breathe. Apparently people have been snowboarding and skiing through the streets! We have so many awesome hills in our neighborhood! Maybe I should invest in a snowboard?!


  1. Well Girl, it's certainly beautiful but better you than me.

  2. We got it in TN too - I loved it! What great photos, it looks like you spent a lot more time outside enjoying it than we did lol. Your poor little doggie awww :)!
