Snow Day

We got about 2 or 3 inches of snow over the last two days. It was pretty exciting for us, being from Atlanta, which has little to no snow every year. Things didn't stop here...stores were open, schools were attended, work was done. We work in the evenings, so we got to take advantage of the snowy afternoon.

This small pagoda is adjacent to our apartment, just a little ways up hill. No one was up there, we were surprised.
We ran into this crew on the way down the hill. As soon as they saw the camera, they all huddled around their snowball and posed. It was pretty darn cute.

Just next to the hill with the pagoda is another hill. We decided to make a snowman since both of us couldn't remember ever making one. I couldn't figure it out at first, but Beth showed me the way. We found some gloves to give him hands. Beth had quite an affinity for "Mr. White (aka Three Slaps Johnny)."
I've been meaning to take a picture of this failure for a while.

On the way home I put a few snowballs together. We went up to our apartment on the 12th floor and opened the window. Children were all playing in the snow directly below us. I yelled out "bombs away!" and started chunking the snowballs. Two kids decided to try and catch them. It was a fun day.


  1. Killer day, alright.

    Took me a second on that sign. I think I was just assuming that OPNE was an acronym or something. I almost failed at the fail.

  2. That must have been a wet, heavy snow to come up with a snowman that big with such a small amount of snow. I love the photo of the intersection with the tire tracks! I think there is a market out there for that one. Gina and I watched the bug video again the other night and laughed.
