Our Family Life

A Gift From Diego

Early Sunday morning winter storm Diego decided to stop by and stay all day long. It snowed and snowed and snowed! I didn’t think it was ever going to stop. It was pretty coming down at times with the big huge flakes. By the time it was over we had 15 inches of snow at our house. That’s a lot for us! The last time we got this much snow was in 1996 when we had a blizzard. The weatherman said this could have been considered a blizzard if the wind had picked up. I’m so glad it didn’t! 

The first picture was taken at 8 am and the second picture was taken at 3 pm. 

I’m not sure exactly what time it started snowing, I think a little after midnight. It didn’t stop until around 10 that night. That was actually earlier than expected. The day before the meteorologists kept saying it would last until noon the next day. I’m glad they were wrong! 

This was around 3 pm. 

The snow was perfect for sledding. My daughter’s best friend lives right over the hill from us so she came up to play. They stayed outside sledding all day before coming in to warm up with hot chocolate. As soon as they were warm they were right back outside! 

My daughter was tired after sledding. I don’t know how she found the chair!! 

I was worried Sunday night because the trees were getting very heavy. The tree below is extremely tall and sits between mine and my neighbor’s houses. I was worried it was going to break, but it held on. People all over the county were losing electricity. I’m so thankful ours never went out. 

There was still plenty of snow yesterday, too. Some of it melted during the day Monday, but the temperatures dropped into the 20’s at night so it all froze back. That made the snow super slick! 

I caught my daughter eating the snow. Don’t worry – it wasn’t yellow. 
I can finally see my little light again!! 

Did you get any snow with this storm? Are you a snow lover or a snow hater?
