How much snow???

The forecast was calling for 50 cm. For all the Americans out there...that's about 20 inches! I'm not sure how much snow actually fell, but it was A LOT! So much that we had a snow day today. Yay! I know I'll pay for it later in the week, but it was worth it to stay home with my girls.

The best part of a snow day? Playing in the snow. Here is a photo of my oldest before she started diving into the drifts at the side of our drive way. To give it a little perspective, she's about 40 inches tall. And the other is a photo of the drifts outside our side door. I tried to shovel a little path for the dog (a Shih Tzu -- poor guy has incredibly short legs), but it just kept filling in.
Here's hoping the roads are clear tomorrow since I don't think I'll be able to squeeze another day off out of this storm. But I could try...

Wow, Marcy, you had some serious drifting too!
Cute pics. I love tobogganing. My kids are too 'cool' now. They like the speed of a snowmobile better. And as far as they were concerned, the snow day was an excuse to sleep until noon. Teenagers!

Hope you're settling in to a routine now that you're back to work. I remember how difficult it was to get two little ones out the door day after day. I feel for ya!
