I Hear You Knocking

One of my all time favorite author’s is Laura Ingalls Wilder.  I would read her books over and over again.  So you can imagine with this latest round of snow, I’m beginning to feel like I’m stuck in the middle of the Long Winter.  Except we’re not stranded on the prairie, relying on trains to bring us food, we’re not burning twisted straw to heat the house and we’re not eating just bread.

Okay, maybe the Long Winter is a bad analogy.

I just want to go on record as saying, I’m done with winter and I’m ready for spring.  Thursday afternoon it started snowing and it snowed until yesterday around 2 pm.  Twenty-four hours of snow.


This latest winter storm was named David.  Which coincidentally is the name of my favorite ex-husband. (Technically he’s my ex-work-husband but even still, I like him better than my real ex-husband.)

Sorry, I digress.

If I had to guess, I’d say we got at least another foot of snow.

Hubby cleared the driveway before leaving for work yesterday morning, but by the time I came home at night we had at least 8 inches of snow on it.

I gunned the car and stuck the landing but knew I’d never be able to get out or in again.  So Sampson, Delilah and I walked up to the park.

Our Park It wasn’t looking good from this vantage point.

I don't know I don’t know mom, it looks pretty deep.

Nope Nope, not going to happen.

If you like our page on facebook, you may have seen the video I put up of Delilah trying to get into the park.  (If you don’t like us, would you mind helping us out and popping over to click the like button?)

As we walked away I heard the park sing, “I hear you knocking, but you can’t come in.”

We had to be content with a walk about the neighborhood.

Rocks 1 Check out the cool boulders.  These are actually in someone’s front yard.

Sunset One of the benefits of a storm is the beautiful sunsets when it’s finally over.


Snow Just to give you an idea of the snow accumulation.

We’re digging out again this weekend, what are your plans?

    The neighborhood walk isn’t too bad. Mom and I took a few of them in the snow yesterday. Everything was so pretty. We only got about 4 or 5 inches, which is good, because my belly is about 8 inches up, and I don’t like snow touching it.

    Love and licks,

    I agree that its time for winter to be on its way! However it was nice to have a normal winter after last year’s!

    Wow Jodi, you really did get hammered! We hardly got anything and it’s already melting. BTW – THIS “Okay, maybe the Long Winter is a bad analogy.” made me crack up. :-)

    I can imagine that you are tired of the cold white stuff. Hopefully it will melt quickly and you will all get to enjoy the park again! Have a great weekend!

    well…i have the a/c on. *snickers* i did the cold winter thing in ohio for 3 years and that was enough. even the ex (who is a great guy and a great friend) says he isnt going back there in the wintertime!

    shadow says she’s glad we live in the south, she’s just a LITTLE dog and that kind of snow is just too much to expect her to handle! 😉

    Wow…I know there are a lot of people that are like you and are understandbly snow-tired. I think after our last snow fall, if we had another, I’d feel the same way, I’m also ready for spring! I hope spring shows up quickly for you too!!

    The snow is at least melting off nicely here this weekend. I am going to pretend that I don’t hear anyone who mentions the snow we’re supposed to get again on Monday, because really, enough is enough!
