Blizzard Time!

Snow Snow Snow.  We got crushed in Maine on Tuesday.  At our house we got just shy of 2 feet of snow.  Fortunately, it was light and fluffy, I despite the really wet, heavy snow.  Sadly, as I got the snow blower out and ready for action on Tuesday morning, the augers were not working.  I tinkered, called my dad, but nothing seemed to work.  We were in a jam.

The snow kept piling up, drifting into our yard, and blowing off the roof.  In some spots in the yard we had well over 3 foot snow drifts.  They following morning, Ashley and I got the snow blower to work!  Four hours later, the driveway was clear and I come in to have some hot chocolate!  There is nothing like being cold from the snow and having a hot cup of chocolate.

This was the girls first serious Maine snow storm.  They were a little overwhelmed but handled it well. With both of the girls off, it was a few days of typical Maine snow storm: snow castles, shoveling, eating, and board games.

Glad you got through the snow storm OK. We've been getting quite a bit of hail lately, but three feet of snow sounds crazy. The hot chocolate with mini marshmallows looks perfect!
