The Blizzard of 2011

Not to be confused with The Blizzard of 2010 on January 8, 2010.

Yes, everyone panicked.  Every county in the metro area closed schools, majority of businesses were closed and people up north are probably laughing at us... BUT, in the south's defense - we aren't really equipped to handle snow.  We don't have shovels, or snow plows or lots of salt trucks (whatever they're really called).  Majority of our cars are not 4 wheel drive.  Our stores don't even sell sleds!  So, while it's a tad dramatic to call 4-7 inches of snow "Storm Watch 2011", there is a little room for understanding...

We actually got about 4-5 inches of snow (I didn't measure)! AND Clover enjoyed it way more than she did last year.

Here are some pictures of us playing in the snow today:

On a side note - it is HARD to layer maternity clothes!  I'm 28 weeks tomorrow (is it just me, or has this pregnancy flown by?!?) so I had a hard time finding clothes to keep me warm!  By the time we came inside, my booty was totally numb!  We had fun though!
