Cabin Fever

I know that I have already posted several times this winter pictures of the couple of inches of snow that we get here, but this weekend was crazy! On Saturday we got frozen rain all day that turned into a sheet of ice covering everything because it was so cold that night. The street looked like glass. I got maybe an hour or two of sleep at a time that night because every time someone tried to leave from the house of young guys across the street, they had to scrape a half inch of ice off their vehicle. At one point I got up to see what all the noise was outside and our next door neighbors were scraping their front porch with a metal shovel at 11:30 pm for some reason. There was a car trying to turn around in our very narrow street and their tires just kept spinning and spinning. It took them 5 minutes to get turned around without hitting anything. When we woke up Sunday morning there was already a couple of inches of snow on the ground and it continued to snow all day long. It didn't stop until it was dark out that night. All in all I think we got around 8 -12 inches. I haven't gone out with a ruler to measure it yet :D

The kids have gone outside for two days now having a great time in all of the powder, even Rachel! Jeromy didn't have to go into work until noon today. His work sent out an email to the employees last night. I have seen kids walking by our house too, so I assume they have a snow day. Snow is so much fun periodically, but the problem is going to be the sheet of ice that is underneath the snow. It is going to be awhile before the side roads like we live on are clear.

The first three pictures were taken early in the day. We got alot more after they were taken!
