We have had a lot of snow in the past 2 days… 70cm, (or 27.5”). They pulled the plows off the roads yesterday at noon, & have already cancelled school & government offices for tomorrow. Everyone headed outside for a bit this morning. Chad was busy snow blowing the driveway, while the older boys worked on the back deck. And while they were outside in the snow, the littles & I were inside defrosting the freezer, or playing with snow inside!
And after the boys got it all shovelled off. Normally there’s a 4 foot drop to the ground off the deck, but the snow is currently 4 feet taller beside the deck (the poor bushes will be in rough shape when the spring comes!)
I got myself stuck in a drift up to my hip & had to crawl out. Meanwhile Digby was trying to bite my gloves off thinking I was playing a silly game. Asher got himself stuck in the snow under the lilac tree. He was standing straight up, the snow was up to his armpits & he could not move. I had to help dig him out, & he ended up losing a boot, so we had to dig his boot out too!
Monday is traditionally Dominoes Pizza night, but unfortunately due to the snow, they are closed! Now we’ll probably starve.
