Lots-Oh-Snow

 Well, this was my morning today.  I was chanting....Must Get Rid of Snow....Must Get Rid of Snow......  Pictures just don't really show what my driveway and yard looked like this morning.  The girls and I were on our own for this blizzard.  Daddy is traveling for work and was not here for all the fun.    We walked outside and the snow just overwhelmed me for a moment.  I kind of wanted to cry actually.  But, I had a little chat with myself.  I was quickly reminded of the quote..."How do you eat an elephant?  One bite at a time."  That is exactly what I had before me....an elephant!
 This was right outside my door.  A wee bit of snow.

 The snow plow tried to come down our street but got stuck!  It is never a good thing when the plow gets stuck in your road!  He was spinning sideways and his wheels were smoking trying to get unstuck. 
 
 Here is all our hard work.  I was singing...."I fought the snow and I won!!" 
Darling daughter and mama after all our hard work with our rosy cheeks when we were finished.  Phew....I need some coffee and a back rub.
