Christmas storm 2009.

We got our first big snow storm over the holiday.
We had 40 mph winds and 17 inches of snow. We were snowed in for two days. As you can see we had a snow drift about 7 inches tall.

On Sunday it was nice enough for the kids to play outside. Jason made a walk way for the kids...they had so much fun. Isabelle was amazed by all the snow.

We did some sledding in our driveway with our big snow hill.

Jason had to go get the loader from work to get our driveway cleaned up. I am still amazed by this storm. Everything got shut down for a day but walmart. Our neighbor took me to walmart to get a heavy duty shovel, the roads were terrible...there was only one pathway to get threw the roads and some were completely snowed in. I am learning when it really snows out here, it takes awhile to get everything cleaned up...they aren't used to all this snow. It was nice being snowed in, we got to spend more time as a family and we had a couple of neighbors that came over to visit.
