One hour later, after my appointment, I came outside to this.
The size of the snowflakes coming down was absolutely fascinating! I have seen my fair share of snow storms, but I can honestly say I have never seen snowflakes this big! It was beautiful.
I walked back into the hospital, and asked the ER doctors if the road I needed to take to get home was closed. They looked it up for me, and said the road had just re-opened, but was still pretty bad. They looked like they were prepping the ER for a disaster, so I asked them if they were getting ready for a lot of car wrecks.
They chuckled and said, "Actually, we are preparing for the ski and snowboard accidents." The hospital is the closest to the ski mountains, and it was definitely going to be a big powder day. I just shook my head, knowing full well that Ben was probably pacing the floors back home waiting to get out there himself.
The storm was definitely a pretty one. It was really cool and peacefully serene, until I tried to get home.....in this.
|Don't worry, I was literally driving about 10 mph when I took this picture|
I came home to Ben, who had a gleam in his eye the size of the grand canyon, and had his snow skis out and ready to go. He was like a little kid on Christmas, it was great.
Our neighborhood was beautiful!
Sam spent 4 hours making this snow fort with his friends, and snowmen sprouted up everywhere.
This was definitely an amazing snow storm!
