Winter Is Here!

Hey Everyone!

I’m a bit early with the post today, because I know I will be busy around lunch time today. It is not often that I know when I will be busy, so it is kind of a welcomed thing. Ya know?

I hinted that I may have to use my snow blower last night, but the snow didn’t really start accumulating until late in the evening. That being said I woke up this morning to a ton of snow haha. We still have lake effect snow warnings and watches until mid day today. We went from no snow two days ago to about 11-18 inches. This is pretty typical though where I live, we are just an hour and a half away from Lake Erie and get all the heavy stuff. There was only a two hour delay for schools today even though all the main roads and hills are still covered. We are, mostly, pretty decent at driving in this weather since we see it all the time. For reference I took a picture off of my porch this morning after I already shoveled the sidewalk.

From this picture alone you can see that it was piling back on right as I went. I’m sure it looks like I didn’t do much at all by now haha. This evening when I get home I will for sure fire my snow blower up and give it it’s first real ride. Everything is ready and waiting. The only thing I couldn’t find this morning are my leather gloves but I can grab others. My driveway is long and narrow so the hard part is going to be finding a safe place for the snow to go. I don’t want to hit the house or windows, or throw it on my neighbors driveway beside mine, so I’ll have to be careful.

On another note, I wish I knew that trying to do car seat things in the snow was going to be as awful as it is. I try my best not to fall down the stairs out of the house. Then I try my best to not fall walking to the car. Keeping him out of the elements is hard on top of trying to get him in the car without snow falling on him haha. I guess it is better than pouring down rain, if I had to find a silver lining. 😀  This is when I wish we would have found a house for the right price with a two stall garage. I have been texting my wife when Everett and I are both safely at or destinations to keep her mind at ease. The little girls at his daycare always laugh when I get him inside and pull his winter hat off. His little hat hair is funny.

Where you live have you received any snow yet? Do you at all? Let me know in the comments below, so I can share in your pain or be jealous that you are living the dream in a warmer climate haha. I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀

  1. We also get Lake effect snow from Lake Michigan. However, we haven’t had a lot of accumulation so far this year–about 3 inches or so. However, we are supposed to get snow again tonight–the yucky kind mixed with rain.

    I wish I was in a warmer climate! LOL

  2. Nope, no snow where we live. This is the onset of a very hot summer and already the sun radiates scorching heat – when it is not raining, that is. We’ve had unaccustomed high rainfalls this whole winter and it doesn’t like like it will be clearing up soon. Your picture is absolutely stunning.
