On the 17th of December

40 inches of snow

Who would have thought? December 27, 2020

On the 17th of December, we got dumped on with 40 inches of snow.

It was huge.  I have lived in the northeast my whole life and have never seen so much snow in one storm.

When I went to bed the night before, I was expecting to wake up to 5 inches or so, maybe.

Instead, at 4:45 a.m. when I let the dog out, we both stared at a wall of snow that dwarfed the poor dog at the top of the step.

Had to be a drift I thought to myself …

I threw on my Carhartt’s and quickly found out it was not a drift.  As I stood at the bottom of the steps in snow up to my lower thigh, I knew we were well above the 5-inch mark.  Kids?

The kids moved snow all day as it just kept coming down.

I caught it on video.  I don’t know why, but I just love watching my kids work together.  My heart just swells with love.

I thought I would share this little snippet.  In the big scheme of things, it’s the simple things that make a happy life.  Family, friends and moving snow together.

Happy New Year everyone.  Let’s march into 2021 like we own it!

With love,
