Snowzilla 2016

Oh my gosh! We got SO MUCH SNOW!! Did you hear about Snowzilla? It was an enormous snow storm that hit the East Coast over the weekend. We had plenty of warning, so we were well-prepared. We had food, toilet paper, and warm clothes. All that we needed was the snow.

Snowzilla did not disappoint. In the days leading up to the storm, meteorologists were predicting up to 30 inches of snow. I worked from home on Friday, and Dan and Z came home around noon. Thank goodness, because the snow started soon after and didn't stop until Sunday morning!

All told, we got around 26 inches of snow! Though we had a good time playing in it on Saturday during the blizzard, Sunday was the best day. It stopped snowing and was pretty sunny, so we got to just enjoy the light, fluffy powder. 

Our neighborhood is the absolute best. We have so many kids around Zahara's age, and they all get along so well. A bunch of us trekked over to a hilly part of the 'hood to go sledding. It was really fun, and Zahara couldn't get enough, but as the snow was above my knees, it made it really hard to keep bringing her from the bottom of the hill back up to the top!

It was so much fun watching Z play in the snow. She loved it and did so much better than last year. This year she really could run and jump and throw snowballs. Hearing her giggle and shriek was all I needed. It was definitely a storm to remember!
