The town that cried snow...

I live in the DC/MD/VA area and they don't handle snow very well. Having grown up in MA, I feel like the folks here are P-A-R-A-N-O-I-D about snow!

A few weeks ago, the weather folks forecasted a snow storm. The government including schools and several businesses were shut down in anticipation of the snow. We got NO snow. It rained and rained and not even icy rain, just regular rain!

Yesterday, we were told of another impending snowy forecast. But this time, no doubt due to the criticism from last time, we were told it would be 1...MAYBE 2 inches of snow in the area I live in. As a result the government remained open and most schools remained open. Some instituted a 1-hour delay.

Well, lo and behold, we have 3-inches so far and its still snowing! This is our only significant amount of snow this season and while it looks pretty, I wish they got it right this time so I could have  slept in a bit longer this morning. Oh's hoping its a much warmer week.

In other news, here is our little JOE and my very handsome hubby...all ready for Church yesterday. Yes...I am trying different things with her hair. I put in colorful hair clips. It was off before we even made it to the car but at least I tried :-).

Have a fabulous week!


  1. People are such wusses in the DC area when it comes to snow.

    Snow in the Spring, gotta love it :).

    Loving that picture of JOE and her dad, 2 peas in a pod. She has so much hair, how cool that you are doing something with it already.

    1. The snow was beautiful. I can't wait until my little girl is able to go out and play in the snow.
      I am ready for the summer. Skip Spring (since I get bad allergies).
      Her hair is definitely growing which is why I am trying to figure out what to do with it.

  2. I'm an absolute wuss when it comes to cold weather. I spent 3weeks in germany during winter, and unless I have too, I'll only go back in warm I can't believe it's still snowing and you in spring.
    Awww, love the pic with JOE and her dad. Look at those smiles :)

    1. Yeah...the snow can be tough when it comes to driving so I can understand why folks are not fans but in my area, EVERYTHING stops. You'd think it was the very first time they were seeing snow.
