We Survived



The ice storm did pay us a visit with a thick coating of ice and a few inches of snow on top of that.  



With temps in the twenties we all went outside, but not for long.  


Out of school yesterday and school called off again today.  I fear it is not looking good for tomorrow either.  




The weather is getting a bit tiresome, I must say.  

Not all is lost, as I started this new book series and am rather liking it.  

As our week goes on, it does show a warm up in progress.  Let's hope that is true.

  3. It's better to get out in it than to stay cooped up in the house too long...especially with the kiddos- they get cabin fever, too. Looks like ya'll had fun! It's 25 this morning, and I'm just thankful that all the rain we got was not sleet or snow. Have a wonderful week!

  8. Wow it looks freezing! What happens when so many school days are missed, does the school year get extended? I know this winter has been rough for so many I was wondering about that...

  9. Happy all is well . . . ice, some snow, no school . . . and more time to play!
    Sounds like a great day to me . . .

  10. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. When you get snow and ice, you go outside and play! Looks like they had fun.
    We didn't get the storm here but it was cold. It might get to 32 degrees by the end of the week and should melt some of the snow we do have.
    Enjoy your reading.

  11. Lovely images. We didn't have any snow this year (yet), so I always like peaking into snow images of others.

  17. Isn't it funny that dogs LOVE the snow. And never wear boots.

    I LOVE it when I find a new book series.

  26. It's wonderful how kids and dogs can have fun no matter what! It looks like a giant snow globe! I can picture you rapping on the glass and screaming, 'Let me out!'. The book series looks like a good one. Let us know... xo

  29. Just cold here at night, the snow didn't amount to anything. Schools were out Monday and 2 hours late today even though nothing much happened.

  30. It looks like some in your family liked the snow!

  31. All the schools have been shut around here also. Hubby had to drive to Charlottesville today and he said our area had received more snow. I enjoyed your photos. I'm glad you were all able to get out and enjoy yourselves for a little while. The book sounds intriguing.

  34. I am pretty sure I downloaded that book onto my Kindle. Will have to check it out. Sounds interesting. I hope Spring comes soon for you!

  35. Oh it look like ya'll are having fun with the snow. The weather sure is getting weird. It got to 61 yesterday here! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  36. Looks fun! And even more, because I never get to see any snow in my part of the world. :(

  37. Hi Michelle, visited your blog from Latane's Living Life on Main Street blog and we too live in. Very small town and in a very old home (1906) so it was a fun visit with many similarities. We are on the VA eastern shore and also got Monday's storms with schools closed for 2 days, and we stayed in and watched the beauty outside. And. New book is always a good companion for such days or anytime. Drop in for a visit anytime.

  38. The snow looks wonderful. {From my comfy/warm home. :)}
    I hope you get some sunshine and warmth soon!

  40. Ugh, I'm sorry about the ice :s. We got another 6" of snow and as much as I have tried to appreciate all of our winter, I too am about ready for spring and not seeing cars in the ditch every few hundred feet. I'm always looking for new books, thanks!

  41. SOOO ready for spring in our neck of the woods too!

  42. Great photos, but sorry about the snow and ice. This past weekend we were expected to get 6-10 inches of snow. Thankfully it moved south of us and we ended up with very very little and it has melted quickly. We were supposed to get some snow yesterday, but it stayed to the north of us! Again, so grateful! We are so over this winter and it looks like you are too. Warmer temps on Friday here for us and I hope they move towards your area too! :)

  43. Our weather is lousy, but it is almost spring... That is a lot of snow, but they seem to enjoy it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. That is some walk up after your down. As a kid. I and us kids used the golf course to go tobogganing but it was the walk up all of us up to the top.

    I want Spring. Oh it is cold where I live too. Some days cant even get to the car. Ice city and the sand and salt does not do anything.

    Come on SPRING!

  45. Yeah, the snow is nice for a limited period, I haven't seen much of it this winter though ... how strange.
