All the snow!

Raleigh has already seen two snowfalls this year! This is kind of unprecedented. The first snowfall I was here for, but for the second I was at a work trip in Ohio.

The screened porch collected a light dusting

It ended up being a pretty good snowfall!

The front yard got it too

The snow on Jan 4 was pretty good, but it only lasted for a couple of days. The kids went back to school, 2 hours late on the first day, then got out 2 hours early the next day, then got the rest of the week off.

Then the week of the 15th, Raleigh got about a foot of snow dumped on it! I had to go to Dayton, Ohio to lead a workshop around these tools I'm trying to get built at work. I love my job, but Dayton is a strange vacuum of boring space. I got some snow pictures, but none of my kids playing or having a good time because I wasn't there. of course this is the first time in almost 2 years that I've had to travel for this company, it's just ironic that it happened to be the same week that something big happened here.

Lots of snow outside of Cincinnati

Outside of the hotel

Even the pool got a bit of snow

No shit

Baseball field behind the office

At least Ohio knows how to handle the snow

subtle frustration

They pile it up big

I can't believe you guys got a foot of snow in Raleigh. That's a ton to deal with when you don't have the plows and such to clean up. We got a foot of snow here on Monday it was a total mess but things were pretty cleaned up by the next day or 2. Phil's bus got stuck on the way home from work about a mile from our house. I tried to go get him as he didn't wear snow boots that day but then I got my car stuck in the driveway. SO he had to dig out my car and then do all the snow blowing. Good times. He didn't mind too much, though, as having a snow blower makes it a lot easier to do clean up after big storms. He did have to snow blow twice on Monday though as it was coming down so hard.
