Wishing for the White Stuff

I am hearing rumors of "snow fatigue". These reports are coming out of areas that don't normally get a lot of snow.

People are saying that they are *gasp* running out of stuff to do. *shocked face*


You've got a winter wonderland just on the other side of that door!

People are reporting that they have cleaned house, baked, cooked, read books, organized, done laundry, painted, done crafts, sewn, yada, yada, yada, and more. REALLY?

I live in an area where our average yearly snowfall is well over 100 inches....
and I still manage to get nothing done. Seriously. What are they trying to do?

We have a measly 3 inches of snow left on the ground that has been melting down from the couple of feet we had a while back. I didn't appreciate it while it was here. Usually our snowfall just. keeps. coming.

Personally, I am hoping for more. Oh yeah. LOTS more. Why? Because I haven't yet recreated some awesome Calvin and Hobbes snowmen scenes. That's why.

I feel the NEED to get creative in our snow play and I really want to see what Josiah would come up with. Think of the possibilities!

Life Lesson: Don't take your snow for granted.

Of course... our front yard isn't big enough for multiple scenes. We may have to "borrow" some more lawns. Coming Soon to a yard near you....

I've always wanted to make a Calvin and Hobbes winter scene. Sigh.

Oh, how funny! My 23 year old and I were just talking about the Calvin and Hobbes snowmen scenes. LOL Of course, we don't usually get enough snow to really do anything. However, this winter has been something else here. I love blizzards and I also love that around here they disappear in days. This time though....the weathermen are saying not only will it be a BIG one, but it's staying at least this coming week. I must admit...I will be one that will be going crazy at the end of the week. Too much WHITE outside. LOL I'm pathetic, I know! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. :) Gotta love those comments.

3 inches would be a lot of snow for us. Hope you get enough snow because I totally want to see what y'all would do with it

I love it! Make sure to take lots of pictures when you're done. :)

LOVE the Calvin and Hobbs idea. May have to borrow that :)

I have an inherent distrust for anyone that says they have all the cooking, cleaning, baking, laundry, etc. done. Those people should be buried in snow:)
