The blizzard we got the other day was cold, and windy. But I don't know of too many blizzards that are nice to be in. :) A regular Nor Easter we got! We were well prepared to loose power. We didn't. Hard to say how much snow we got. We live on a hill and open fields, so we got some snow drifts that are about 4-5 feet tall. No lie. Then bare ground. The wind was the worst part. Just bone chilling. The expression the air hurts my face, ya that was it. It was so cold it would freeze your nose hairs. If you know cold then you understand that expression. Ya that cold!!!! Burrrrr.
The day after the blizzard was just bitter cold. We had to get the snow drifts moved, and chores done. The sun decided to come out for a few minutes too. My husband was plowing the snow drifts and made some really awesome hills, so the kiddos and I went out to play what I call "queen of the hill." The queen still rules the mountain. That would be me. Mama D!!!! They love to challenge me, but I think they just love to be thrown off the snow hills really. My youngest daughter says "I'm on your team Mommy." She doesn't wanna go down, but just to play I still give her a little push, and she'll squeal and roll down. My son really comes after me, but I get him down too. Not really sure how many more years I'll be the top dog on the hill of the game...
So we just hunker down and stay prepared for the winter weather that we get, and keep the wood stove going!
Weather temps permitting we will be tapping trees soon, if we can trudge through all the snow that we now have!
I look forward to warmer weather and burring my feet in the sand at the ocean, and getting my hands dirty in the garden dirt.
Have a great weekend all!
