I woke up at 4:30 a.m. to the sound of thunderlighteningsnow.
Thunderlighteningsnow is when it is snowing and thundering and lightening all at the same time while also being ridiculously cold.
This is what thunderlighteningsnow looks like, and it’s all up in Kansas’ business.
At 5:30 in the morning, I bundled up in two pairs of pants, two shirts, a sweatshirt, my boots and a water-resistant jacket. A hat that could have been a lot warmer and my husband’s gloves rounded out my SNOW SHOVELING outfit.
Our driveway was covered in at least a foot of snow and took an hour to shovel it. While it was still snowing. (An hour after my husband left for work, all the snow was back.)
This is at 4:30 a.m.
Husband and I took turns shoveling and going inside to get warm. Of course, when we went inside, the snow that had accumulated on our clothing melted.
Water puddles everywhere! I am grateful for carpet.
We had to shovel the snow so Husband could go to work. Unlike me. Since I work at a bank, and all the bank branches are closed due to inclement weather, I did not have to go to work today! <—Adult snow day.
Yesterday at work. No work for Shae today!
Husband, however, cannot NOT go to work because hospitals don’t close. Poo.
So Ivan and I have to play in the snow without Husband, and play in the snow we shall. Well, he shall.
This is at 7 a.m.
This is at 9 a.m.
Ivan isn’t always the biggest fan of weather… unless it’s sunny and awesome… but he jumped around like a moron in the snow. He really doesn’t understand why his footies are cold, but he does understand that eating snow is almost like drinking water.
Which he’s all about.
I am going to spend the rest of my snow day feeling bad for my husband and catching up on blogging, reading and menu planning.
OH! And check out the deathcicles hanging from my house!
