It's been a good day here in my neighborhood. We woke up to a gorgeous world completely coated with 12" - 15" of the white stuff. I just love snow so was quite happy when I looked out our bedroom window this morning (having a day off from school didn't hurt, either). My hubs, on the other hand, has been doing nothing but grumble the entire day. He claims to passionately hate "that God-awful white crap". Actually, his language was a bit more colorful but I'll just let you use your imagination.
My daughter Brynn had to go to work this afternoon, and though our road was plowed, our driveway? Not so much. However, as you can see, Brynn was bound and determined to conquer those 12" - 15"!
That first little camera jiggle in the above video? My first slip in the snow. That second ginormous camera jiggle? Yup, that was an arse over apple-cart fall by moi that sent my camera flying into a snow bank! (Mom, you were so very smart to give me a water-proof camera for my birthday!)
Brynnlee was ultimately snow victorious, but, of course, I accidentally turned the camera off so there's no "victory dance at the end of the driveway" to be seen.
Oh, and Brynnly informed me on her way out our road that my A-over-A fall was punishment for cleaning the snow off of her car roof...and onto her. Yup, she was standing on the other side of her car when I pushed the snow off. Can't say my apology was very sincere. (It really never is if delivered while the apologizer is also laughing hysterically.)
Stay safe and warm if you're in this year's snow belt!
snowfall...such a beautiful thing!
