The weekend blast left over a foot of snow in its wake. The range varies depending on your location, but we haven’t had a snow like this in years and it was great. Yes there is the hassle of shoveling, snow blowing, plowing roads and all that but this is the upper Midwest. It suppose to snow a lot and having a foot on the ground should be the norm. This of course has not been the norm since our winters have been so weak. Anyway it’s great to have all the snow and to just seen it fall for a day and a half was pretty sweet.

The storm held off a bit so we were able to get our team run in on Saturday morning without much trouble. There was only a dusting on the ground when we met up as a team. It ended up being a lot of fun and the team seemed to enjoy having a bit of snow on the ground. Maybe it was more a relief that we didn’t have more but no matter we had a good turnout and a good run.

Later in the afternoon Ms. R, Kimmi, and I headed out into the heavy falling snow to get a swim in. I’m not going to say that it was unproductive, but I don’t think our hearts/minds weren’t into doing a real workout. I think we spent more time working on flip turns then actual swimming. Which I think was ok given the nature of the day. With all the snow it was kind of snow day and all about doing what you wanted.

This trend continued on Sunday. Most people around our place were busy trying to dig themselves out from all the snow that had fallen overnight. The sup to our apartment showed up and started blowing out the driveway and sidewalk. Shadoweyes (a couple good pics of Kimmi and Harley) and company helped out. I stayed in with Ms. R and we worked on breakfast. After a loaf of bread, 15 eggs, 1 pound of bacon, hashbrowns, and OJ we were all fit for a food comma. Ahhhh food comma!

The rest of the weekend was pretty much the usual with grocery shopping and washing clothes. I guess there are some things that have to be taken care of even during a snow day. Hopefully the snow will stick around for just a little bit. Nothing like looking out our window and seeing everything covered with a foot of snow. I heart snow….

The snow was a pain in the butt personally. I would have not mind, but I had other plans that involved FLYING. UGHHH! Come on Cancun visions!
