Blizzard 13

Well we have now experienced our first blizzard in New England.  It was beautiful to see the snow falling.  The wind was a bit crazy though.  We kept power, thanks to our gracious God.  We went for a walk to the park on Saturday morning, but it was still snowing hard and very windy, so Anna Claire and I didn't stay out long.  It was too deep to sled so Craig and the other 2 didn't stay out too very long either.  It started snowing Friday around 11 am and quit Saturday around 12 pm.  We got about 2 feet, but because of the wind, some places were much deeper than that.  Now it's time to have some fun playing in it which is what Craig and the girls are doing now!

Look at the snow between the screen and the glass.  It never fully covered our deck because of the wind.

I know, terrible pic, but that's how deep the snow was.

Several snow banks on the way to church this morning.  Look you can't even see the Burger King, because the banks are so high!

Snow banks in the grocery store parking lots are Enormous. 

The last time we were in a blizzard was in March of 93 when one hit in AL.  I'm not sure how much snow there was, can't remember that far back. It's neat to be in a place too where they are prepared for this weather and you can be on the streets when it's all over with.  Life just keeps going on as normal. What a great experience this has been for us though!  Thankful!!!
