This one will go down in the books. The blizzard of 2019 hit the Washington D.C. area with a bang, closing schools and the Federal Government.
The storm arrived in mid January of 2019 on a weekend. It dumped 12 inches of snow at our house over a two day period.
There is something so magical about a blanket of pure white snow. Looking out my dining room window was a sight to behold. We live on top of a hill and the views are magnificent.
Of course all this beauty comes at a cost. Our neighborhood roads are so treacherous, we can’t get down our very long driveway. But the sight of falling snow at night is well worth the inconvenience for a few days 🙂
Luckily, we didn’t lose power, because the temperatures were frigid.
We plowed our driveway twice, one time during the first half of the 2 day storm, and again once the snow had stopped.
The branches of the trees are so pretty with a dusting of white snow.
When it was all said and done, we were left with a foot of fluffy powder. I didn’t leave the house for 4 days. The kids had a fabulous time sledding our hills and our new puppy loved eating and playing in the snow. Of course getting him to go potty in snow was another story and required a bit of patience, but we got through it.
The snow plows cleared the road, and the sun came out. It was still a beautiful sight that we enjoyed for days.
And the deer were out in full force as the snow melted. I always wonder where they take shelter as the snow is falling.
It was fun to have one good storm this Winter. Am I ready for another one? Meh…not really…I’m good! One and Done! How about you, have you had a good snow storm this season?
