I can’t find my accursed camera charger anywhere, so I wasn’t able to take many pictures of the snow in the daylight. However, here are some from that evening. Keep in mind that most of these were taken around 7:30, and the snow kept falling for hours after that, so there actually was a good deal more than this.

Also, I was introduced to snow shoveling this weekend, and I am all kinds of sore. I didn’t even know these muscles existed.

I think this looks like my car has a Pompadour:

This is when I jumped off the back of Pete’s truck into the snow:

And this one kinda creeps me out because I look like I’m dead. And I didn’t realize my hair was this long.

Here I am standing in one of the snow plow berms:

And here I am falling out of one of the snow plow berms. (The walking. It is hard.)

(Pete thinks I look like I’m running away from a yeti in this picture.)

Ok, Damnit. Have we had enough fun yet?

Doesn’t he look so appropriate in the snow? Like a Russian peasant?

I’m CRAZY SNOWFLAKE EYE! (Hey there good skin. How did I get you all of the sudden? No wait! Don’t run away and leave me here like this without your secrets!)

And a few AM shots. So bright!

And remember, I had entirely cleaned my car off the night before.

    I am so jealous of all your snow. I wish we could get snow like that down here in Alabama!


  3. Great photos! The folks back home won’t believe it.

    Who’s the bearded fellow? He looks like a younger version of the sea captain from the Simpsons.


  5. You two look so cute in the snow! And man, you guys south of us got way more than we did north of the city.

    Ahh, shoveling snow. The bain of teenagers and childless adults everywhere. I always had to get up about 45 minutes early on winter mornings in Utah to shovel the driveway. It was awesome.

    Did the schools close because of the snow? In Utah I would have been driving to school in that much, but down here they cancel school with half an inch of snow. I was wondering how careful/reckless (depending on if closed/open) they are up there.

    Try to stay warm.

    Of course by bain, I mean bane. It’s lait.



  8. My husband was beside me when I pulled this up. I pointed at one of your pics. “See her boyfriend loves her enough to be sure she had decent boots for her first snow.”

    “I said I was sorry, it’s been 8 years. Are you still mad.”

    We had snow at Thanksgiving in west Texas – only 4 inches – but lots of fun. Come visit when you need thawing. We are getting sunny, high of 75F on Friday in Corpus- workin’ on my Christmas tan. Sorry about your fender bender scare. Yipes!


  10. Hey – those pics of you lying in the snow are indeed creepy – I love them! This post made me miss my days in Michigan – miss them just a bit, but not terribly much, I must say. It’s sort of like ‘doing time’ – I did my time in the cold. Do try to enjoy it (which it looks like you are) – it is beautiful, isn’t it? The light in the morning – your eyes open up and before you even look out a window you know that the snow is there.


  11. I have never seen so much snow. That’s crazy!

    Looks like you are enjoying the snow! Stay warm and I hope we – in the south – get to see you sometime! I do recommend the hibernation method for the winter it can’t be boring with all the sewing projects I know you have lined up.

    I saw these pictures quite some time ago even had a witty response all typed up… and then my computer did what comouters so often do, and my witty response was lost. It will probably be the only witty thing I say in 2008. Anyway, the snow: well, it makes me almost use an expletive here on your blog thing. That is crazy. But great pics.
