A Dark and Snowy Night...and Weekend

What a weekend! We received more than 20 inches of snow in the La Crosse area. Joel and I shoveled and we shoveled and we shoveled...

Yes this photo was taken at our house--on Sunday morning while we should have been at church, but it was canceled due the excessive snowing over the weekend.

On Friday evening (the dark and snowy one), our friends Peter and Emily Jantz came over after deciding not to take a road trip to their parents house because of the forecasted weather. We hung out and played Wii.

If the photos were not enough to satisfy you here is a video of Peter and Joel boxing.

Before Peter and Emily could head home we had to shovel our driveway. The snow continued through the night. Our last time out with Cammie was little bit humorous and very snowy and cold!

We have a video of Cammie bounding through the snow, but it needs some editing and will be posted soon.

On Saturday morning when we awoke we had more than 12 inches of snow and lots of shoveling to do. Check out the great present the plow left at the end of our driveway. Doesn't Joel look like he was having fun (I was helping when I wasn't taking photos!)

The weekend was a lot of shoveling and waiting for the next snow fall. Joel's in Lousiana where it is warm and 60 degrees F, while I am awaiting the next wave of wonderful weather. Maybe I should have insisted I go go with! Check out the rest of our Dark and Snowy Weekend Photos.

**3/1/2007--I was trying to fix something in this post and lost some of it. I tried to recreate it, but it may not be the same as it was, but now hopfully the video works.

i made gene look at the pic of joel and the gift that the snow plow left for ya - so he wouldn't feel so singled out - our driveway is on a corner at the top of a hill so we get a similar 4ft pile at the end of our drive - and our 80 year old neighbor's - who gene also shovels. all the other drives on the block - nothing! fun, ey?

good thing you widened that drive!
