Blizzard Draco...

Wednesday, January 2, 2013
 
Anyone else find it funny that we are now naming blizzards, I mean I did always feel slighted that we never got any named weather disturbances, or not...but alas they now name blizzards and our lives are all complete, right?  Enter Blizzard Draco (really? that is what you name it?).  Scott and I did not give this little ol' blizzard the credit it deserved, maybe that is the reason Scott got stuck in a drift and came home with wet khakis to his thigh?!  We did get about 12 inches and some major blowing snow and we pretty much hunkered down wit the rest of the state until it blew over (pun intended).  The roads were AWFUL so Scott's car was sanctioned to home, we took him to work on Friday and that was about it.  Luckily we decide to go out the night it started to snow because I had a feeling the next day was going to be pretty cold....and Solon was chomping at the bit, with little sister close behind to get in on that snow packed action....

Once again, we felt the effects of ill-preparedness when I realized Solon's snow pants from when he was Vera's age (18 month size mind you) were gynormous...
bu it didn't seem to squelch the enthusiasm...
So excited for her 1st "snow experience"...
Yes I have man hands (aka Scott's gloves) reason #5235 I was not prepared, note I don't have my ski jacket, snow pants or anything else out of the storage container in the basement and I didn't think we would last that long - wrong again - we spent 45 minutes out there!
Can you see Vera, she was all over the place.  Not surprising, but she didn't let the oversized snowpants slow her down.
 
Our first snowman was not packed enough so we tried again, attempt 2 was successful...we then went on to make a mama, sister and brother snowman - but unfortunately their fait was short lived, they blew over the next day.
We had a great time.  I don't know the last time I had so much fun in the snow.  The weather was still "nice", not too cold so it made for a fun evening before bedtime.  We finished the night off with some hot chocolate or "hot chocolate hot sauce" according to Solon.
The next morning it looked real pretty from INDOORS ;)
But our neighbors (did I mention we have AWESOME neighbors) invited Solon out to play because Vera had come down with the flu...and feverish babes and blizzards don't mix.  He had a great time shoveling their front yard with his buddy!

We survived our first named blizzard and even dust off the ol' snowblower (hadn't been touched in nearly 23 months!).  We wanted a white Christmas and we got one, I have a feeling the snow will be sticking around for a while...
