Snowpocalypse 2011: Making the Most of It



Here in Chicago we got quite a bit of snow today, around 20 inches or so. And although I’ve been told by my favorite Canadian that what we got was only some snow, it’s still a lot to us. Those Canadians…they can keep their snow, I prefer the beach. ๐Ÿ™‚

But anywho, we ventured out into the snow and we spent around 4 hours clearing the driveway today. Since this is a snow to remember (whoever came up with the word Snowpocalypse, I love it thanks), I filmed a tiny bit of the fun along the way.

So I’ll leave you with the video and all I want to say is, no matter how much snow you do or do not get, no matter how busy, tired, and overworked you are, I hope that you’ll take a second to make the most of today.

Whether or not you have or will experience the Snowpocalypse what will you do to make the most of today? Let us know in the comments!

    “I keep losing my pants…” Hahahaha! Pair that with the momentary flashing and we have a winner, folks ๐Ÿ˜›

    I’m glad you guys got a good dumping of snow – and knew that you could play in it and appreciate it. So many people say, “I’d never live where you do! Snow! Cold! AUGH!” but I can point to 100 snow day activities that are a blast (okay, maybe 67, but hey.) If you’re well dressed (Jeff, do you not own BOOTS, man?!), you can play like you guys did for hours…

    … and feel so energized from it.

    Also: snowblower. Really? No. Really?! Wuss. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Boots?! What are those? haha Nope no boots for me, I did wear shoes that I didn’t care about soaking (or even destroying if need be) ๐Ÿ™‚

      We did have fun…although I’m not moving to the “I love cold and snow” side anytime soon. Hot and sunny for me!

      And hey! The driveway’s pretty freaking long…of course snowblower! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhh that’s funny, now you know what we here in Northern Minnesota have been facing for years, especially this year.. The snow you got, we would call a dusting !!! lol (kidding) I have been on my roof two times already, after two wild snowstorms…Snow was built up to over my knees, had to come down as the weight will surely cause problems with the roof caving in at some point. It took me four days to complete, each time.People are advertising to shovel roofs, at the minimum it will cost you (average house) around $350.00.. but those are the professionals that carry insurance,. You would not let anyone up on your roof without insurance…Well , really do wish you guys lots of safety, so take care.. Cousin, Lou ๐Ÿ™‚
