The Blizzard


On Monday we took full advantage of the larger space in our new classroom. We were in a mad dash to get most of our kits packaged and shipped before the Snowpacalypse hit us. Kits stretched across table after table, boxes being folded as fast as possible, packaging, labeling, and then stuffed into the back of Karin's vehicle just in time. What a day!

On my drive home from the store I heard on the radio that a blizzard warning had been issued. Seriously? I had no idea there was such a thing. The warning, not the blizzard. After the terrible ice storm we had a few years ago I was not looking forward to what was ahead. A trip to the grocery store proved I wasn't the only one. The aisles where empty. Eerie empty. Bagels for sandwiches and Mini Buzz Lightyear flash lights were going to have to do.

We woke up Tuesday morning to the snow coming down. All day we would peek out the back door and to see how high the snow was on Drew's soccer ball that he had left out there over the weekend. We watched it quickly disappear under the snow. Jackson had a minor panic when he notice his dump truck was buried.


His panic over the truck lasted about two seconds when he realized just how much it was snowing. We then went from panic over his truck to panic over wanting to go outside in the snow. He would have stood in the doorway, with it freezing cold and watched the snow all day if we would have let him.

I love the fun from the first picture, that is alot of kits to get mailed out. That's so sweet of Jackson, we were watching it too, it's amazing and so magical and scary at the same time, especially listening to the wind howling around our house. We got tons of snow but nowhere close to what some people got, I can't imagine digging out of 20plus inches of snow. Glad everyone is safe and it's over. Have a great unsnowy weekend.

So impressed with the kit assembly! Just when I think we are going to get to "dig out", more snow in the forecast!! Must repeat "snow is better than ice.." :)

Dawn, I wish I could get a picture of all the kits but this is just about 1/3 of two of the seven kit clubs we have. It would have been so cool, impossible, but cool to see all of them spread out!

Christy, I know!! I just looked at the weather! I'm so ready for Spring to get here!

This is by far one of the worst winters I have seen in years. But, hey, I'm Canadian and I shouldn't complain. We got the blizzard warning too, but I think by the time it got here it had really toned down a bit, and wasn't worth all the hype... hope everyone was able to make the most of it who really got hit with it.

Since the groundhog saw his shadow & we're getting an early Spring...is it too much to ask Spring start now?!

Hey Allison, those kits look awesome...Any chance you can tell us what papers you're using for a kit to help us decide which one(s) to buy? I didn't see any pictures on the SG website.
