I think Compassion has changed its snow day policy because, for the first time since my mom has worked there (which is nearly 5 years), they called a snow day! Woot, woot! Get a load of that gorgeous snow! And thank goodness for the new snowblower my parents bought last year on sale! That cut the shoveling time by at least half, if not more!
Although going uphill is faster than downhill for some reason. Although at this angle and the necessity of blowing snow to my life, I ended up getting sprayed by a lot of it. Oh well, nothing's perfect.
Bubbles isn't a fan of snow, but she was fascinated by its presence outside HER window.
This was before I got out there with the snow blower. While the snowfall in most of our driveway was no higher than 6 inches, naturally the front steps had a snowdrift almost 2 feet high. If you're going to get a snowdrift, it's always where you least want it to be!
The storm door was literally caked in snow and when I banged on it, it left this lovely window through which I could take a photo. I'd say it was a God thing, especially since the snow was still falling! So pretty.
That's all for now!
I also baked Swedish Coffee Bread with my sister and tried my hand at making Risengrynsgrøt (that Norwegian rice pudding), which was absolutely delicious. It just needed a tad less milk and shorter grain rice, but it was still terrific for a first attempt. I'll post those photos later in the week because Swedish Coffee Bread is just too yummy to not share! Hope you all had as glorious a day as I did!
