Playing Hookie

For those of you not living in Utah, we have a ton of snow right now. It's been coming down for over 18 hours now and the place is covered. This morning was particularly bad. Just look at the aftermath.

That's my car, buried in snow.

Keep in mind that I was crazy enough to try digging my car out to go to church this morning. It was much worse before that. Of course, I had the good fortune of slipping and landing right on my arm with no snow to pad my fall. Ouch. I pretty much gave up after that, especially when I saw that the road was getting buried again and there was little hope of seeing the plow again today.

Chloe, however, loves the snow. I mean loves the snow. Especially when it's this deep.

This is Chloe romping in the snow. I can't believe it comes up to her belly.

It even makes the ugly pine tree in the backyard look kind of pretty.

The pine tree in our backyard is totally covered. It looks so Christmas.

I think I kind of like this "four seasons" thing.

    Good. I like coming home to UT when there’s snow in the valleys.

    The 4 seasons are nice. I’m a fan.

    That does look really pretty.

    This winter they got over a metre of snow back home. I don’t know what that is in American, but it’s a lot. It’s the most snow they’ve had since 1978, and they had to close all the schools, and they even closed the university during exam week. I’m sorry I missed that.

    Our street was not eve CLOSE to plowed by church. Between that and my headache, it was less-active day.

    That looks like about five minutes worth of snow in alberta. It’s pretty.

    We played hookey too. We were going to anyway though. Supposed to go to a family party, but the boy got sick again. 🙁

    Max loves the snow too. However Sunday afternoon he was getting lost in it. All you saw was his black nose every once in a while. 🙂
