The Snow Day

We finally got a snow day this year! I don't know why they always seem to happen so late in the season for us, we always seem to get really big storms at the end of February and beginning of March. It started snowing at around 9 PM, so I raced out to take some pictures. It was a really thick pretty snow accumulated so quickly!






It snowed all night and into the morning. This was around 6 AM when we woke up to see how tough the drive to work would be.




I love how the snow seems to wrap everything up into a soft fluffy blanket. Even though it's cold, it seems to make everything feel cozy and warm.


I didn't get to have a proper snow day since I work in a 24/7 medical lab that never closes. Snow days are always terrible because most of third shift calls out and leaves a pile of work too be done. It was exhausting and the whole time I was wishing I was at home in the snow. But on the bright side the lab manager bought pizza for every body! We took some home and ate it for days.

We did take a drive downtown before going into work though, which was a bunch of fun, I'll be sharing those photos soon!

  1. Lol. There is so much snow here, that if we had a snow day, the whole area would be closed all winter.

  2. ah such beautiful pictures! i like how the snow is just resting on every little branch and brick, like you said wrapping in in a fluffy blanket. in kansas it's always so windy so it just drifts and covers the ground but leaves the trees and other things bare.

  3. Your house looks so warm and welcoming in the last photograph with all the snow. We only got one snow day, and that's only after getting about 18" of the stuff and that was only after the husband's work realised that people just couldn't get out of their driveways yet alone travel in!

  4. It certainly was a magical looking snow and you got some fantastic shots of the area around your house. Even your tiny birch tree has the gentle fallen snow in it's little branches! I wondered what it looked like down there on your end of the street. Can't wait to see more of your snow photo.

  7. Oh these pictures of yours are just lovely! It must have been so exciting to see it snowing outside. I love the way that the snow rests on top of the branches in the trees, so pretty.
