All last week the weather forecasters' talked about the big snow that was on it's way to parts of New England this past weekend. We were expecting 1-2 feet of snow, which seemed like a crazy amount seeing that we had hardly any snow at all this whole winter.
To prepare for the storm we needed to make sure we were set to be pretty much trapped at home for a few days. For us this meant do we have enough food and gas for the generator? This in itself wasn't easy with packed grocery stores and lines at the gas stations.
School was cancelled for Friday, although only light snow fell on and off during the day. Towards late afternoon the snow and wind did pick up, and it stayed steady until Saturday morning.
We awoke to a winter wonderland, to say the least. It was difficult to tell exactly how much snow we got because it was light and fluffy, and blew around a lot in the wind, but it was halfway up our car doors. And when we went outside, it was up past my knees.
We ran around out there and had some fun for about an hour, and I took a bunch of photos to remember the storm that ended up with it's own hashtag ~ #Nemo.
Tomorrow I'll be back to share this year's Valentine's Autumn and I put together for her class. And beginning at 12PM US EST my Wordless Wednesday Blog Party will be open for entries! If you participate in WW, I'd love to see you here...and I always return the WW Linky L♥VE!
