Oh Hey, Snow!

Oh Hey Snow

It’s snowing today in Boston.

I love/hate it. I think it’s wonderful but such a mess at the same time. It’s 2007 Britney.

We are currently predicted to get between 5-8″ of snow. Not too shabby.

After last year’s record setting snow fall I’m glad this winter had been pretty easy on us.

With 9 days left in Boston I can’t complain. I’ll take what snow comes our way. I will miss it to some degree, but I don’t miss having to clear off the car or shovel.

In fact, I really hate cleaning off the car, I have a “funny” story  about snow and my soft-top Jeep Wrangler from when I was in high school. My mom was out cleaning off her car after it had snowed and was lecturing me that I needed to properly clean off my car before going to school while I sat inside it as it warmed off. I said “nah, look at this. I do this all the time.” I turned around grabbed a gym shoe in the back and tossed it against the back plastic to knock off the snow. “See, it knocks it off!” I grabbed the other shoe, tossed it back there again and my shoe sailed right through ripping the plastic. WTF!?!?!?! I guess the cold, rigid plastic had had enough of shoes bouncing off of it and RIP!!!!!

Needless to say I was in trouble and really cold in my car that day. Lesson learned, don’t through shoes at your Jeep Wrangler’s windows.

Anyway, I snapped these photos on my birthday, Jan 18th, as it snowed a bit that morning. Autumn gave it 10 minutes outside before calling it enough. Or maybe, that was me. Doesn’t matter really…

Hello Juno

2015 Blizzard Juno

Juno might have slighted the New York area but it hit us hard in Boston.

We ended up with 24.6 inches, making it the 6th biggest storm in Boston’s recorded history. It actually dumped 36″ in Framingham, about 20 miles away from where we live. It was all awesome and annoying at the same time.

It shut down the city, including the MBTA, on Tuesday as there were blizzard conditions throughout most of the day. So we were all home on Tuesday as the snow swirled all around.

As the snow eased up in the afternoon we all went out to check out the snow.

Autumn hated her snow suit but she loved being outside so the moment we went outside she stopped screaming bloody murder. And started again the moment we crossed the threshold again. Our babe just loves to be outside at all times.

Her long beautiful eye lashes caught falling snow flakes.

Poor Price spent over 8 hours between Tuesday, Wednesday morning and night outside with the snow-blower cleaning up the driveway, walkway, and stairs. The piles are taller than me in some areas.

And while Price busted his butt out there for hours and hours we stayed cozy inside making cookies. I really do think that I have perfected my chocolate chip cookie recipe at this point. yay!

She stole my pen. He stole her blanket and chair.

Price took these pictures of our street on Tuesday night once the wind lessened and rate of snow coming down slowed down. More people felt brave enough to come out of their houses to start digging out.
