White Christmas—No Longer Just Dreaming

We were snowed in today—except for David shoveling the sidewalks (which was no small task). 16.5 inches of snow fell here in Minneapolis, and we had some of the 3+ foot drifts in our own yard.

Paul Douglas says this is the biggest snowfall in the Twin Cities since the infamous Halloween supersnow in 1991 when 5-year-old Megan’s trick-or-treating in her favorite cow costume was cut short due to the veritable snownami.

For David, this may have been more snow in one day than he saw cumulatively the first 23 years of his life (in South Carolina). He definitely never had shoveled anything like this.

The airport, public transportation, and even the malls (2 weeks before Christmas!) closed today in the Twin Cities.

So how did we use our snow day?

We stayed in bed a little longer than usual (see the picture on the previous post).

Cole had a little computer time with Daddy.

Most significantly, we spent a good portion of the day going through our closet and getting rid of old and unused clothes. We’ve been on a bit of a decluttering kick around here lately.

Notice the picnic table on the left side of the picture.

    Sorry to hear about the Metrodome roof collapse. I’m praying your roof will hold up and your power stay on. Hope you have enough bread and milk. Sending warm hugs and kisses from South Carolina.

    I can’t imagine all that snow – wow. It’s even cold in Florida – in the 20’s last night – but no snow 😦

  3. Hi there-I met you a couple Sundays ago at the evening service, and I linked up to your blog through Molly’s blog. Fun pictures! Your babies are so cute.

    I started getting stir crazy over the weekend being snowed in, and so I started cleaning and trying to think of strategies to de-clutter some of our closets. It was a productive weekend!

    See you around at church!
