A little more snow than expected

 The weather service was predicting 1/2 to 1 inch of snow for us over the next few days.  Instead we have ten inches or so piled up and potentially more on the way.  Somehow it is very satisfying when the weather prediction is wrong, because deep inside we always doubted that they could predict it anyway.

Here is our snow-woman we made.  Emily says she is a little creepy, but I think she is regal.  The girls wanted to make her into a princess and previous versions had a crown, but their heads fell off.  I reinforced this one with a stick inside, but forgot a crown.

Our house in the snow.  We have three sidewalks leading to the house, plus the sidewalks around the block to shovel, which is the job awaiting me now.  
Even Kate came and played outside with us.  

Emily and her friend made a great snow fort in the Church parking lot that included tunnels and a protective wall.

Don't Blink!! Is what I would say to you and your snow-women.

Love the snow fort! Made me remember the one we made when I was in the forth grade. One of my few good memories.

Yes! I totally agree with the satisfaction of an inaccurate weather report. Make an icicle crown for your snow beauty! (Is she supposed to look like Emma Smith?)

I wondered when the forecast was for only an inch of snow. The weather report looked like it was blowing pretty well, too. Glad the girls are having fun. No snow here this year that stayed on the ground at least.

I'm so grateful for the snow this season. Crossing my fingers for a great spring.

I laughed out loud when you mentioned secretly wishing the forecasters to be wrong. That's my feeling exactly.

The snow photos were awesome. Thanks for sharing.
