I really didn't expect it to snow again, and especially not this much! I didn't measure it, but we probably got around 10-12 inches in total. Here in NC it usually doesn't snow enough to cover the blades of grass, but about every 10 years or so we'll get hit with a big snowstorm.
It started snowing last Wednesday afternoon while I was at work, and about 45 minutes later my boss told me I better get the heck home! I'm glad he did because a drive that normally takes 5 minutes took me 30, I couldn't believe the roads got covered that quickly.
It snowed all day Thursday too, and luckily we were able to stay home from work, which was nice. I finally got around to unpacking the last few boxes we had sitting around since we moved in. Which was a year and a half ago by the way. ;-) I planned on going to work on Friday because it was sunny and warm, but my car wouldn't budge, and in fact, I ended up having to dig it out of an ice block Monday morning! It's been in the 60's the past few days and there still quite a bit of snow hanging around. Crazy!
And of course, I took plenty of pictures!
This was about two hours after it started. Goodbye road!
My mom's cat Sookie ran outside to join us, and immediately regretted that decision!
The snowflakes were huge!
And of course, no snow day is complete without building a snowman! (Even if I did pull a muscle in my back.. Snow is heavy!)
I'm glad we got a really good snow this year. I am super ready for spring and gardening, but looking at these pictures makes me miss it already.
