Snowed In

a

Hello from Winter Wonderland! The three inches of snow that fell on Tuesday night feels like nothing compared with the two feet that's fallen in the past 24 hours. Tom and I have spent the day trying to keep up with shoveling the sidewalk in front of our house (ok, Tom really did the shoveling). I trudged through thigh high snow drifts in the backyard to feed the birds that were trying to keep warm. The snow on our birdhouse (thanks Mom!) has been acting as our snow gauge.

I spent the rest of the afternoon making a huge pot of hot and sour soup to warm our bones and baking brownies for snacking on tonight while we finally get around to watching The Hangover. Not exactly a fashionable day. Ha, ha! I still had on my pjs underneath my coat when we snapped these photos first thing this morning. Umm... I'm still wearing them now. I think we're going to try and get out tomorrow for a walk and enjoy the car-free streets and trees heavy with snow. More pictures then!

That is an incredible amount of snow!! You do look extremely fashionable in your pj's with that beautiful jacket thrown overtop! I wouldn't have known there were pj's underneath!

That is what it looked like here! They called a state of emergency in Delaware. You could get charged for driving. In the City of Wilmington, they are not allowed to drive until Monday 8 a.m.

I'm so over the snow. Is it Spring yet?

tess said...

oy the snow is insane! since I'm from MN I'm used to snow, but clearly DC isn't. kind of funny/annoying watching people freak the hech out.

the spectator said...

I couldn't even imagine what it's like to have that kind of snow right on your doorstep!

Style Artisan said...

I LOVE the picture of the birdhouse. How amazing!!! The snow on top of it looks just like your cute cap!

Lara said...

Wow! Two feet! I can't even remember the last time we had 2 feet in one day in Chicago. We get a lot of snow but 2 feet in one day is crazy. Sadly, even if there was 2 feet, nothing would stop. I would still be expected in at work. Haha

Ly said...

The birdhouse looks so cute with all that snow piled on top!

Kass said...

Woah, how beautiful! I can't believe all the snow.

Tanglewood said...

It seems about the same in DC. We went out for a long walk tonight and then a couple of drinks at a bar, and I swear it rejuvenated all of the folks I was with. Brunch tomorrow and then another walk--I think the physical activity is keeping us sane!

Penelope Nightingale said...

Tell me about it! I'm from Shippensburg, PA, and the amount of snow we're getting here is unreal! I feel like we've been due for an actual winter for a long time, though.

BARGAIN BEX said...

There's been whispers here in Good Ole Utah that we are going to have a bit of snow fallin' ourselves tomorrow (only not nearly as much as your two feet!)

I can only hope that I'll look as adorably stylish as you all buttoned up when it does :)
