Snow Days

Oklahoma shuts DOWN during snowstorms.  People stack deep in line at the grocery store, gas stations, well, completely run out of gas, no one (the city) cleans the roads or streets, and everyone stays inside until it all melts away.

Thus far we:
had 'smores in the fireplace with friends
Rented movies
ate chili + cornbread
enjoyed cups of hot chocolate
and played outside with the pup- she loooooves the snow.

I know friends further north are having many more problems with the weather!  I'm so thankful they are doing okay.  Hang in there!


  1. Oh you Americans are so soft :p

    It went down to -10F and we got 6 inches of snow up here in Ottawa, Canada; I would've loved to stay home instead of working :/ Hope you enjoyed your day!


  2. Oh, how I wish I was stuck at the Grimms! Sounds pretty delightful.

    This might be an odd question, but with living in an apartment complex... Where do you get your firewood?

  3. your pictures are beautiful! I'm so jealous of your fireplace!

    I hope your 3 (ish) days of snow have been as restful as you've needed them to be!

  4. Miz - We are soft, aren't we? It's pretty crazy how everything shuts down, it really is. Hope you all are doing okay up there!

    Sam - It's actually from my sweet parents who let us borrow firewood every year. We stock up early!

    Mallori - Thank you! It's been so nice to have a few days off. But as odd as it sounds, I'm ready to get back to work.
