What I did on my spring break....sounds like I'm writing an elementary school essay! We did lots of little things, taking the stay-at-home-and-get-a-mental-break route instead of taking off and traveling. Getting off the crazy merry-go-round schedule, sleeping in, hanging out and working on projects is a worthy spring break, too!
I'll share a couple of things I did, but first I have to tell you the most amazing thing that happened during our break. We got snow. So what? you say -- you live by the mountains -- your springs are bound to have late snowstorms...
Yeah...but... a FOOT of snow? On April 16th? Look at what I woke up to:
That last shot made my daughter say "Where do we live? RUSSIA!?" We found out later that only a couple of towns got hit like this. The rest of the state was saying "what snow?" What a shock to wake up to this, when you've got tulips and sunshine and green grass and bunnies on your mind...
I pulled on my winter boots (ACK!) and got out the snow shovel (double ACK!) and got busy shoveling tons of wet, heavy snow off of the driveway and sidewalks. Mr. H went around shaking our trees free of the weighty snow, and by doing that, saved our trees.
He disappeared after that for four hours as he, his friend and a chain saw helped all our neighbors take down broken branches and sometimes even downed trees. We were one of the very few that survived this crazy spring break blizzard with no damage to trees or property.
CRAZY! Are you sure it's not really December and I just got punk'd? LOL
When it looked like this at the end of the very same day, I really did feel like I was losing my mind! Did a foot of snow really happen? Thank goodness I have the pictures to prove it!
