Easter and More Snow

Easter was nice.  We spent time with family and had some delicious treats.

On Monday, we were greeted with a lovely but quick snowstorm.  We only got about 1/2″ of snow because most of it melted when it hit the ground.  So yay for that!

It’s weird to see snow with the background of cherry blossom trees blooming.  It’s been a tiring couple of day 🙂

Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

Patches O’Hurley couldn’t wait to get this day started.  Doing the Irish Jig is his favorite dance so today he is ready to breakout his tap shoes and start Jigging!

It snowed this morning but the boys feel certain it won’t hinder the festivities planned for later!  Come on people…go get your IRISH ON!!!

UPDATE:

Just in from the Irish Government…Americans Suck and can’t spell.  Being American Elves/Gnomes we are part of that suckage and have fixed the faux pas.  Happy St. Paddy’s Day…y’all!!!

Today’s Weather Forcast…Snow

Yes it snowed again in Our Town.  These snows have been kind of hazardous for driving.  It is better when the snow has stopped when it’s time to drive to work.  There’s that knowing that the commute home won’t be quite so treacherous.

That was not the case today.  The Roomie went to work and got out early with both times the driving not such fun times.

We all arrived home and Sheldon and I got to spend some time playing in the snow.  All in all not a bad snow day 🙂

Snowball Fights and Snow Angels

We’ve had snow two out of the last three days which I love!  It’s kind of weird to think it is still technically Autumn but Winter is just days away.

Me and Thad got outside for both days to play in the snow.

This is how Elves make Snow Angels 🙂

It snowed pretty hard this morning but it’s starting to lighten up a bit.

Thad said this picture reminded him of that song…”It’s a marshmallow world in the winter…”

The snow reminds me of when I was a Garden Gnome.  Cold snowy days like today were fun but could be trying too.

But now I live with a bunch of folks who have heat and TV and I like it a lot!  Keep safe while traveling and if you can get a chance to play…go do that!

Oh Wait…There’s The Snow!

We had hoped for snow.  The weather people went on and on about the “BIG” storm that would dump snow on our Metropolis.  I complained about the big bust of no snow yesterday.  This morning I woke up at 5:30 am to let the dogs out and it was snowing…a lot.

Oh my, it’s snowing still.  Way to cluck up the forecast weather guy.

Does this look like Partly Sunny and 47 degrees to you Teddy?

No It does not Linus.

I didn’t know the weather would continue to be snowy this morning so I chose the wrong car to drive to work.

If it doesn’t stop soon driving home in the Vette is going to be interesting!

I’ve totally decided on a new profession.  I’m going to be a weather man and get lots of money for always been wrong.  That will be later…right now I have to go to the store and get the last loaf of bread and some milk!

Seriously? Where The Heck Is My Snow?!?

All day yesterday on the television and radio they droned on about how much snow we would get out of the system that was approaching our metropolis.

First they were saying 0″ to 12″ (yeah I don’t get it either?).  This was followed by 3-5″ then 2-4″ then 1-3″ and I gave up.

Yes we got some rain but they barely spoke about it.  It was all about the snow…Look over there…clouds, it’s cold but do you see any snowflakes?

IMG_6945 (300x400)
I’m here to tell you that I want those 8 hours you had me stoked up about the snow back.  The sledding that was to be had and the snow forts that should have been built!

Um Linus, can we get out of here?  It reminds too much of the place I was before I was created.  It's creeping me out man!

I’ve got to build a bridge and get over my disappointment.  I saw some ice cream on the bottom shelf of the freezer…I’ll drown my sorrows in that 😦

Nor’whater?

Another Nor’Easter blew into town.  I think this is our 4th with snow but we’ve been having them since about November.  In November and December they were massive rain events.  Let’s just say I do not want to hear about a drought this summer.

I’m really hoping to get out and play in the snow today.  I did manage to get in a snow angel before starting my work day.  It’s good to feel like a junior Troll everyone once an a while.

My homeland of Norway is doing pretty good in the Olympics in Vancouver.  What can I say my people are built for rugged snow conditions.  We’ve got a total of 19 medals so far.  Gratulasjoner Norge!!!!  My new home country isn’t doing to bad either.  The USA has 32 medals to date.  It’s all been rather exciting! Må se fjernsyn.

Well I’m sure I’ll have lots more pictures and stories about the snow.  Have a safe day!

Remembering my trip to very warm Arizona!!!
