More Snow Pictures

On day 2 of being cooped up in the house, Joel and I decided to venture out...on foot.  We got out and cleaned the snow off of the cars, and walked down our long hill to the road (about a half mile one way) to see what life looked like out in the world. 

The main road has one lane cleared (as far as we could see), but our driveway leaving the apartment complex (going downhill the whole way) is still very slushy/icy.  GDOT still says to stay off of the road.  So here we are back inside after playing for about an hour and a half. 

We are very thankful to still have power, and that we are able to enjoy these snow days at home.  There are a lot of people in the Atlanta area stranded at the airport, the greyhound bus depot, and even out on the interstate.  So, we are very thankful to be at home during this crazy weather!

Here are some more pictures...beyond our back porch view :)

Abbi making a snow angel (There is a layer of ice on top of the snow now, so we both had to chop through the snow with our arms and legs to be able to make these!)

 Abbi's snow angel...look closely :)

View of parking lot (a few brave people have ventured out as you can see from the tracks)

Joel holding a sheet of ice and snow that came off of the car. 

This was the buildup of snow and ice on top of the car.  (Before)

We made a tunnel on top of the car....The top of the tunnel is a layer of ice.  We scooped out all of the soft snow that was underneath.  (After - see picture above)

Snow in 2011

Joel and I are enjoying our snow day today.  Thankfully, we were both able to stay home today due to school closings.  We are hoping that it stays as snow, and we don't lose power. 

 Here are a few pictures to document:

Boots in the snow...this is on the porch (I didn't make it off the porch :))

View of the cars in the parking lot

View of our side yard...we got about 4-5 inches of snow.  Joel loves to look at the blanket of snow!

Hope everyone is having a warm and safe day!
