We, like most of the other states, got hit with the snow storm last week. Surprisingly, we got more than Mars Hill (where I work – and a town that gets so much snow ALL THE TIME.) It was kind of a good thing I hit up my doctor’s office on Tuesday morning, rather than waiting a day or two.
I stayed home Wednesday to work, and the snow started just before 9 a.m. It was light, and while it coated the yards and streets, it wasn’t a ton to play in (but the toddler did get to play in what was available before nap time.)
After nap, it started coming down fast and before we knew it, we had a few inches of snow. Out we went to play in the snow. When it snows this much, you don’t take the chance of missing some playtime in it.
Thursday morning I went outside to measure the snow. It looked like we were done, but I was surprised a little later that day when it started snowing again. We ended up with 9 inches in some places in our yard, but overall we had around 8 inches of snow. Unheard of for Asheville.
Thursday morning was also when I remembered we had an almost-too-small snowsuit for the boy to wear. This allowed us to be outdoors for even longer. And it also allowed him to sled with out an actual sled (which he preferred at times!)
We’re supposed to have 60-degree temperatures this week, so I guess we need to take advantage of the snow that’s still in our back yard before it melts in the next few days. We got another dusting Saturday, and I’m finally over it. I want to get back to my normal schedule of driving to/from work without worrying about ice.
Did it snow in your area? Was it exciting the first day? (It was fun the first two days. By the fourth day, I just wanted it GONE.)
