Snow Day, Part Two

A good snapshot stops a moment from running away. ~Eudora Welty

Yesterday, we had to dig out the back. The snow covered our basement window and the bulkhead, so both needed to be uncovered so the basement wouldn't get wet when the snow melted.

DD, bless her heart, offered to do it for me. It's no easy task... Here's the end result:

This left a big pile of snow that was perfect for one thing... tunneling (taken through the screen because I didn't want her to know I was watching):

It was a gorgeous day, though -- bright and sunny:

Here's the dog, waiting to go sledding:

Unfortunately, DD's sled broke after only two runs (we're taking it back today ... we got it at Agway, and they're marvelous for standing behind what they sell).

Today, DH is going snowmobiling. He loves when it snows here, because our property abuts conservation land and that land has a snowmobile trail, so he's just cut through to that. He can leave for his ride right outside our door.

There's another chance of snow next week. I'm relieved, actually, because originally they were calling for a warm up and ICE. I hate ice.


You Are Leonardo

You are a natural leader. You know how to stay cool when you're under pressure.

You think things over calmly, and you're willing to stick your neck out when the time is right.

You may be in charge a lot, but you never let it go to your head.

You are modest and humble. You have more to be proud about than most people, but there isn't a vain bone in your body.

That's pretty close to right...

DD was so cute. :)

My husband is the same way with dirt. He loves to go 4 wheeling. When we were house hunting, we had a house with 52 acres on our list. Beautiful terrain, but the house needed a lifetime of work.

I'm so glad that DH finally got to go snowmobiling.

DD looks so cute tunneling.

You Are Donatello

You are definitely the brainy one in your group of friends. Everyone knows you're super smart.

It's likely that you were the top student in your class... as long as school didn't totally bore you.

You are inventive and creative. You'll happily accept the label of "geek."

You may have a lot of brainpower, but you're not a nerdy wimp. You also have a lot of physical power.

About 50% accurate.

Have a good Friday.

Tunneling looks like fun! Glad to hear your DH was finally able to go snowmobiling.
And I agree, ice is bad. Very bad.
Hope you have a good day!

I would have had so much fun with that snow when I was a kid. Now? Not so much. *g*
