First BIG Snow
Its been blizzarding in Iowa! We had a huge snow storm hit us last night after almost no snow so far this year, and my kids were way excited. Ethan mainly because school was cancelled :) It started out as a pretty but heavy snowfall last night, then quickly added thunder and lightning (who knew that could happen?!) and lots and lots if wind. We woke up to a white out view and snow drifts a foot high at our door, and warnings that travel in these windy conditions could be life threatening. So we stayed in, mostly. My kids got anxious to go outside so about one we joined friends for a few minute jaunt outside, broken up by recovering in her garage to escape the wind. It was an adventure, but we survived the Iowa storm and look forward to many more days of sledding and hot chocolate!
