Snowzilla 2016!

It was like Narnia out there. The storm is finally over, and we got about two feet of snow. It's already starting to melt, and some kind soul plowed all the driveways in my neighborhood (city already did the streets). So I can get out tomorrow! Church was closed today. No services, no rehearsals. As if anyone was going to show up anyway!

Fredericksburg got lucky. No major power outages, one roof collapse (no one injured). My lights didn't even flicker.

We did have blizzard conditions, but the wind wasn't too bad.

Once it was over, I had a little bit of fun with my mini dolls. Grace and Saige went sledding, built snowmen, and made snow angels.

Well, they tried!

The birds and a neighbor's dog made their mark on the snow:

It wasn't the worst snowstorm I've been through (having lived in South Dakota, I know bad blizzards!), it was just a lot of snow and wind. D.C. got it pretty bad. New York looked awful. And I have to remind myself that it's only January...but at least the first snow will melt before the next storm hits.

Rory did not like the snow. He looked out the window and glared at it. He thought we were being attacked! Silly kitty.
