It is Megan's first March! The snow started Friday morning and hasn't seemed to stop. Our county is under a Level 3 driving ban, which means travel on the roadways is prohibited by law. Since the snow in the street is near waist deep in places, I figured we wouldn't be venturing out anytime soon. We're all stocked up on the essentials......diapers, milk, and lots of new scrapbook supplies. (I went to the grocery store right as the big storm was hitting. Word to the wise - never attempt to push a race-car style grocery cart loaded with food and a plump toddler through three inches of snow across an entire parking lot. Word to the wiser - don't wait for the storm to actually arrive before you believe the doomsday forecasters and actually prepare!)
Since I've been having a tough time kicking the flu, I'm really glad for this break. John made a huge pot of vegetable soup and we're just relaxing around the house. We even took a nap while Megan napped! Too bad blizzards only hit Ohio once every twenty years or so!
John had to dig a trench through the snow to take the dog out this morning!

Having some fun in the snow! Megan loves to shovel!

The snow drifts are as deep as Megan is tall!

Megan wanted to walk around, but the snow was really too deep.

John is so excited we have a significant amount of snow. Usually, we get an inch or so and then it melts. He actually wants to go buy a snowmobile! OH MY! It does sound fun!

Looks like fun! Our 'winter storm' was nothing like that. Have fun staying home!
