Snow Day!

We had a snow day today! The office was closed yearly Tuesday afternoon, and remained closed all day on Wednesday. I couldn't have gotten out of the garage anyway, so it was a good day to stay inside and hybernate!

Here is my freshly shoveled sidewake taken from the front door. Officially the snowfall in the Chicago Area was 20.2 inches, but there were some very high drifts in the area. Once the wind let up, it was a sunny, crisp day.

The kids in the neighborhood had fun sliding down the large piles of snow, but I was warm and toasty inside and had no desire to join them.

Stay warm, everyone!

The snow on either side of the walkway is about waist high. I know I am short, but it is still alot of snow!
