Snowquester 2013

The snow storm predicted for yesterday, being called Snowquester by the Washington Post, was supposed to leave us with 8 inches of heavy wet snow. We got a call from the local electricity company to tell us to prepare for being without power. School was cancelled. Snow plow trucks were every where and the roads were pre-treated to help keep them clear.

Here are two photos from the walk that Captain Adorable and I took around our neighborhood yesterday afternoon.
Fun to wear galoshes and walk through a Big Puddle.

Neighborhood boat ramp. 

Look at all that snow! Haha. We got a call that afternoon saying that schools would be open the next day (today). The Post did an article about who got snow and who didn't that was kind of interesting. My take away lesson: snow is hard to predict.

However, we did get to go to the family skate party to mark the end of the hockey season. That was a lot of fun and rather chaotic. We skated (as I was skating around the rink I noticed how different it was to skate with hockey players--all the children out there were better skaters then me!) and ate pizza and cookies. All the players got trophies and all the coaches got presents. We'll be back next year!
