Yesterday was the first major / biggest snowfall of the season (and also the first time I saw a snowfall that heavy in my life)! Huge clumps of snow were falling fast and hard. I think we ended up with about 4 inches!
Even though the schools got snow days, we had to work. Boo… So I brought the camera along on my commute, and got very strange looks from other commuters. Whatever. Florida native, people. Be excited.
Here is the “Dunn Loring-Merrifield” Metro platform – our starting point for the day:
(This is along my walk to/from work)
This is Bailey’s first time in the snow:
Then Mike shoveled the front walkway and we took Bailey for a walk and enjoyed the snow together…
I found out today from Rod (work buddy) that it was a mistake to shovel because we got an ice storm last night. Shoveling the snow made the ice more slick this morning. And it was VERY slick this morning! I almost fell many times.
Mike and I took the dog and the camera inside after this and went back out to have a snowball fight. I made a snow angel, and we tried to make a snowman, but the snow was too powdery. All in all, even if we didn’t get a whole snow day, our snow evening was great!
I spent the evening post-snow-playing sitting in our kitchen bay window sipping hot cocoa, reading my Bible, journaling, and then writing a letter to my mother-in-love. Best Tuesday ever.
Today we had the great fun of dealing with freezing rain. The result was ice, ice, and more ice. The roads were soooo slick. I almost fell down the outside stairs a few times just trying to go out to get the mail! The snow is melting, and that’s sad… But it’s still pretty!!
