We had a blast in the snow Not that there was anything like what alot of u guys get but there was enough to build a snowman, have a snowball fight (even teenagers have a ball of a time chucking snowballs at their mum lol),and do a little sledging on the hill so all good

Back to slushy roads now though
Yuck!

Now they're calling for more snow for Friday UGH!!!! I hate snow on the weekends.

I'm going to a scrapbooking weekend on Friday. I only have to drive about 40 min away but with snow it could be a lot longer!! I hope if it snows it holds off til after 6.

And I have to say I can't handle these frigid temps.!! 7 degrees tonight-REALLY????

Everybody was freaking out! If we were to have snow like you guys have, we'd have no idea what to do.

SNOW is a 4-letter word!

We were the only town in the area that had a 2 hour delay. When I went to bed, the forecasters were calling for 9+ inches. We woke to less than an inch!!! There was a bunch of confusion about when high school was supposed to start (10 am vs. 10:30 with the delay). 161 students were late! Not my son, thankfully.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your little snowstorm. When was the last time you had some snow?

Keep safe and warm!

We didnt get any snow last year but 2011 was the coldest winter for 20something years! The snow was amazing and the River Lagan (main Belfast river) froze over. Very pituresque but nightmare if you actually wanted to go anywhere. My mum lives up the mountain and was snowed in both this year and last. Luckily she has great neighbours who dug her out (her house I mean) and my sister who also lives up there brought her to her home to stay
All gone now though

Sorry about taking so long to reply. I've been managing some mischief over on the FAQ.

2011 was brutal for us too. From December until early Feb, the boys had at least one day off each week due to a snow storm. Snowbanks on our driveway were so high I made people honk their horns as they were backing up because you couldn't see into the street.

We didn't have much snow last year, only day off we had from school was because of a storm on Halloween and the same thing this year. Two days off with Hurricane Sandy, but we haven't had a snow day yet, knock wood.

Hope the rest of the winter is decent for you!

Mickey waffles - what a great way to end your trip! Thanks for sharing the highs and lows. Hopefully, the highs outweighed the lows. Sounds like a family trip to Disney would be the perfect follow-up trip.

Well, that jinxed me, I guess!

Nemo, Blizzard of 2013:

Actually, we were very lucky. Only 20-24 inches of snow and we didn't lose power or internet. Some of the coastal communities near us got hit pretty hard.

Mark stayed home on Friday and the kids were off from school Friday and yesterday.

The Mickey waffle was wonderful! Or at least the little piece that I had! I shared the one waffle with two other people.

The highs and lows were just about even, but I wouldn't have missed it for the world!

I know, I need to get the family there!!!

Glad to hear you're surviving Nemo. Love your snoy pics We are having non-stop rain and wind here! Yucky to say the least!

I definitely vote that you NEED a family trip to the world and the only person who perhaps needs it more is Ben (in unflattened form)

Hi! I haven't been Dis'ing much and thought I would catch up...well finish reading your TR. Even after all that I have read, I wish the school here did a trip like that.

The band is going to Busch Gardens, but not my son. He didn't pass the audition.

Thanks for sharing!
