let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!

It has snowed all day today to the tune of 12" or so. I took these pix this afternoon and we've easily added a few more inches since then. The birds were busily scarfing down birdseed, and our yard was bright with every cardinal in Northville.

Evan, ever the optimist, attempting to sled down the miniscule 'hill' in our yard.
He also dug an igloo and is hoping it will still be there tomorrow.
A little self portrait in the front yard. I believe the snow was going into the tops of my boots at this point and I was getting crazed.  Yeah, that must be why I have a crazy look on my face.

Other than the drone of snowblowers, it is peaceful and lovely and still. The best that winter in Michigan has to offer. Aren't you sad you're missing this, snowbirds?

In other equally fascinating news, I was a big winner at Bunco last night! Or I should say a big LOSER...I had the lowest score and took home the booby prize. But a prize is better than no prize, and I am happy with my chocolate fudge brownie mix and polka dot pot holders.

I love Bunco. I've only played once, but it was probably one of the most fun nights I had in a while.

Yay for a good loss at Bunco. :-) We got the same snow as you, only our snowblower broke. Bummer.

Congrats on 'winning' :) I know I'm ready for Spring!
