Like most of the eastern half of the country we had a huge snow storm about a week ago. The weather men were calling it a blizzard and the worst snow storm since 1978. (Actually, it might have been worse than the blizzard of '78, because we had more inches this storm. We just didn't have the same amount of wind so the drifts weren't as bad. I don't really know what criteria is used to judge the worst blizzard ever, but I can tell you it was a snow storm like I'd never seen before.)

Like most of the eastern half of Cincinnati, I went to Meijer just as the snow started to fall because we need toilet paper and maple syrup -- I think even the Survivor contestants aren't required to go three days without t.p. and maple syrup, are they?

Like most of the eastern half of our neighborhood, our road was covered in ice and sludge, so we decided to just stay home for a couple of days. It was nice! We watched a movie, ate popcorn, played the Wii, drank sippable chocolate -- a good, all-American snow day!

Here's a pic of the boys in the front yard. It's hard to see the yardstick, but they measured 10 inches. That's a lot of snow.
