March Comes In Like a Lion



i've said it before and i'll say it again....pa's weather is ridiculous and i'm soooo ready for spring.  i can't really complain right now....it's been in the high 40's-mid 50's for the past three days, and even though it rained today, it felt like a spring rain, which is awesome.

but last thursday...you know, at the beginning of march...southeastern pa was not feeling the springtime love.  instead, march came in like a lion and dumped a lovely 8 inches of that white powdery stuff on us.  and it was the kind of storm that required three different rounds of shoveling and left our little lane a mess.  oh, and we still had a few inches on the ground from back in january because it's been so darn cold here that i just. never. melted.

despite the fact that i'm clearly just over winter, i did recognize what was hopefully the last snowstorm of the year to be an opportunity to soak in the last of winter's beauty, and so, on friday morning, i put on my boots and ollie and i headed outside to enjoy the reflection of the sun off the snow and to snap a few photos.
   



so yes, the snow is pretty, but i'm ready for the beauty that spring brings, aren't you?

oh, and just to keep it real....let me tell you about the real gem of friday.  after hopping out of the shower, i decided to let ollie out so that he could enjoy some time in the snow (which he loves) while i got ready to head to a friend's house.  i threw a towel around my wet hair, threw on a robe, and ran downstairs and stepped out on our front porch with the pup.  as soon as i pulled the door closed behind me, i realized that i had just locked myself out.  on the front porch.  in the snow.  with no key, no phone, and only wearing my robe (thank goodness we live on 5 acres of woods and our neighbors couldn't seen onto our property because of snow-covered trees!).  the only way into the house?  all the way around the back...requiring a barefoot sprint around the house, in the snow, while i maybe let a few choice words fly and also randomly had the thought, "this must be what george washington's troops felt like at valley forge!" (ya know, because of being barefoot in the snow and all...#nerd)

hope your friday was warmer than mine!

  1. I love SO MANY THINGS about this post! First and foremost, your pup is adorable! He's so cute all dusted in snow! Secondly, as an Ohioan, I totally relate to your weather problems. I love the snow but I'm done with it now, PLEASE! Last but not least, I totally appreciate the history reference- that's awesome that that's where your mind went :) Hope your feet have recovered!

  7. It's a very hard storyline to explain!! Lol! I finally made LG watch it with me and he still doesn't understand but it's one of my favorites! I remember the year I got it for Christmas. I ran straight upstairs and watched it right then. Love it!

  21. That snow was crazy crazy crazy. Seriously. You'd think that it was the perfect day to get a whole bunch of unpacking done but I didn't get all that much done. Ha.
    And your story at the end...that's like my nightmare. So I never ever go outside without triple checking that the door is unlocked but usually what I do is keep keys in my pocket. Seth locked himself out at our old house, twice, before we were married so he was living there alone and had to break open the back door. Both times. We spent the next two years with a broken back door (he semi-fixed it) that allowed a nice breeze into the kitchen. lol
