This is a little overdue, but I misplaced my video camera for about a week (my brain is on permanent hiatus right now) and was finally able to sit down today and upload some of the video from our blizzard last week. I had to laugh a bit at my footage as there were about 12 short clips that I deleted of the snow falling outside the window. Sure, it was falling at a pretty impressive pace and you could certainly see how windy it was, but it was one after another after another! Can you tell that I've never really lived any place with this much snow?? So don't worry, I won't bore you with those, but here are a few from our winter wonderland:
The first is a short clip of the dogs running in from outside. This one shows how deep the snow is!
Next up is just a view of the front of our house and neighborhood. We live on a main road, so we were lucky to wake up to fairly-well plowed roads. We have friends, however, who live out in the country and were snowed in for days! I will say that living in the Midwest is nice when it snows as they are very used to it and very prepared to take care of it!
And lastly, little Jakie in the snow. He loved being outside and didn't mind the cold too much. His snowsuit limits his movement, however, so often times he just ends up sitting in one spot with a blank stare on his face. Please ignore the commentary in the background... I tried to put it to music but I'm not that talented!
While we did love the many inches (er... feet) we received, Josh and I have decided that we are officially ready for spring! The groundhog told us that it would be an early spring and I sure hope he's right! Today the temperature got up into the upper 30's and no joke, it feels like a heat wave. I even went outside in short sleeves and felt like I was dressed warm enough... what is happening to me? I think they are turning me into one of them! But seriously, especially with a toddler (yes, a toddler... this kid has definitely mastered walking... video to come and I promise to not make you wait as long this time!) who has cabin fever, we are ready for some warmth and sunshine! Heck, what am I talking about? I am a mommy with cabin fever, too! I guarantee as soon as the thermometer hits forty degrees (which is rumored to happen Tuesday... and we'll be out of town of course!) the stroller will be out in full force. So groundhog, bring it on!
