Madison Blizzard 09

The snow has truly fallen in Madison! Supposedly this was one of the worst snow days in many many years, actually prompting the university to close for the day! Hooray for snow days! We know what those are like in NC, but didn’t see many (did we see any?) last year. All I know is that the snow tastes great and is fun to play in!!

The night before I went to grab groceries in anticipation of the madness, and the roads were already quite snowy. I took a photo while filling up the gas tank to show how it all looked before the REAL storm hit. The next day I told everyone I couldn’t come into work today because I was snowed in. They all had a nice chuckle in California about that!

The next late afternoon Pooja and I grabbed all of our gear and went out to play! Having snow mounds as tall as us is always fun. We threw lots of snowballs and stomped around plenty and checked out the streets of the neighborhood around us. It’s amazing how fast the sidewalks get cleared! We didn’t have any problem walking all around. They all just have straight walls beside the sidewalks with over a foot high of snow, which also happens to be fun to stomp in.

After our nice loop around to play and jump and lay in the snow, we came back in and had some nice hot chocolate! Ahh what a wonderful snow day!

PS: I got a new toy installed for the photos so you can click on them and navigate with left+right arrows and it will show you the title above. Should be more handing for stepping through the galleries!

OH, my gosh! This is so fabulous. Of course, I can say that from my warm home in snowless Greensboro.

Love your Christmas trees. And I’m so glad you two don’t have to shovel the white stuff.

Whatever you do, don’t get snowed in! We expect to see you in the warm south in a week!

Love you (all 4) bunches!

I love looking at the snow but I prefer the sunny and warm weather in Arizona. Enjoy your time in Madison.
