The Great Blizzard of 2011 hit us hard overnight.  We estimate we got between 20 and 22 inches of snow, with drifts in places being 3-5 feet tall.  After two hours of snowblowing this morning we made our way out for a little snow fun (until it was time to go back inside for some hot chocolate and marshmallows). 

It all started last night when we noticed water dripping from the attic fan.
(that white stuff is snow)

Mr. Fix It got it all fixed up so we didn't have any more snow in the attic though. 

The view out the window this morning:

(shoveling a path for Sydney so she didn't get buried alive)

The snow was finally over, so it was time to plow (so thankful for the French's who left us their snow blower when they moved to Texas!):

And then it was time to play!

James may (or may not) have been yelling at me to help him up because he was stuck...and really cold.

Did I mention that we leave for Arizona two weeks from today?

James may have eventually gotten cold, but it looked like he was really having fun. That's the joy of being a kid, having fun no matter what! Great pics. James can tell his grandkids about the great blizzard of 2011 when the snow was nearly as deep as he was tall! (And he had to walk barefoot, uphill to daycare:)
