Winter Storm Fun

Well, for almost an entire third winter season without snow, we sure made up for it today.

Three to four inches per hour. Thunder and lightning! It was crazy!!!

So far, we've hit 9 inches here on the west side of Kansas City, but where Chris works they had officially hit 12.  And we're waiting on round two to pick up in intensity.  Not quite the storm of this morning, but we've been told to expect another 2 to 4 inches.  Yippee.

I have a toddler out of sorts.  Basically, he's been crying off and on all day.  Not sure if it's his ears...uncertainty about the deep snow...or just one of those days where you wake up on the wrong side of the crib!

I leave you with a few pics...

Working Hard...or Hardly Working?!!!  :)



  1. What a day we had huh?

    I bet the kids really had fun. Hope Luke feels better soon.

    Another day off tomorrow.
    I haven't been to school this
    week what with the holiday,two days off sick and two snow days.

    G.L. says we may have another storm
    Sunday into Monday. Oh boy!

    M :)

  2. The snow fall obviously brought joy to your family. Your kids looked they were enjoying romping around the snow. It looks majestic and serene at the same time!

  3. So happy you had a happy, cozy snow day, Val. I hope your little one feels better soon...probably just an off day...seeing the pictures of your farmhouse, I know why we are great is so similar to mine! Right done to the porch swing! Stay warm and safe my friend! : )

  4. What a day, indeed! I love your farmhouse! Gorgeous! And the kiddos are absolutely adorable, and obviously enjoying the white stuff. Stay safe out there! We are around 10 inches or so.. so far. I don't like what Melinda says above.. we have talked about the weather guy G.L. before and he is too accurate!! :) -Tammy

  5. So pretty!! I'd love to see snow some day. It's in the 70s here in the South!

  6. How gorgeous it all is! Looks like the kids are having a blast with all that snow. Your husband looks like he is not quite enjoying it as much though! LOL!

    Hope you are enjoying your winter wonderland and that everyone is healthy and feeling good again.

    God Bless!
