The kids thought the snow was great fun ...and truth be told, I kinda think Happy enjoyed putting his plow thingy on the front of his tractor shoving snow around! I think that saying he plowed the driveway is a little deceiving... see the long fence in the above picture? That is a third of the "shared drive". :)
Lets just say it took Happy four straight hours for his first plowing experience. He did cut that time in half for the second storm. :) AND.... just for the occasion he put on pants, but they were quickly replaced with his trusty shorts when it was snowball throwing time.
Then came sledding time. I found a nice gentle slope by the trampoline, but the kids quickly found the "front" yard, which is a much steeper hill. :)
This morning when my two oldest daughters left the house at 6:40am for the three minute walk to the end of the driveway it was -12C. HOLY COLD!!! Sierra said her eyelashes froze. Then I had to tell her about Nana's frozen nose hairs and to quit complaining. :) Easy for me to say as I shut the door behind them and went back to lay in front of the fire. :)
HA! It seems they were lucky this morning. I just checked and tomorrow morning it's going to be -18C for their bus stop walk!!!!! I'm pretty sure a polar bear would freeze to death out there, maybe some penguins will move into the pond. I bet penguins would have already moved into the pond, but it's frozen enough for the deer to walk across it. :) Seriously, though... there is no reason for it to be that cold. It was NEVER this cold in Denmark or Germany! The only upside to the weather here is that it's at least bright and sunny. :) Sun is good.
