It really snowed!
Leave it to Ada to lock us out of the house when it’s 10 degrees outside with a foot of snow on the ground.
We were going to go out and play for just a few minutes. Our old Victorian door knob has this strange lock where you push a button on the door jamb area of the door to turn the lock on. It stays locked and you can open the door from the inside, but once you step out and close it the knob won’t turn to let you back in.
Ada helpfully closed the door behind her. I yelled for her to stop, but…click.
The kitchen door was also locked. The back door was locked with a chain. The ancient Victorian windows don’t open from the outside at all.
Luckily about fifteen minutes later Tyler came home early from work. I was considering going to sit in the barn under the chicken’s heat lamp before the kids froze to death!
The snow is too deep for Henry to walk easily, which is hilarious.
He loves the snow. When it was time to go inside he tried to run away from me, then he discovered he just couldn’t do it. Hah!
The snow is too powdery to build a snowman or make snowballs. I think it’s because the air is just so cold. It was about 10 degrees outside when I took these pictures.
To give you an idea of the depth of the snow Abby (the dog) was standing in a shallower spot in this picture. Most of it was up to her chest. She’s a lab mix, about the size of a full grown lab.
She loves the snow!
Aha! Home from work early, just in time to unlock the door! You know the weather was bad if Toyota called off production early and cancelled for the following day. That rarely happens. I mean almost never.
Henry, stuck in the snow.
This was a historic snowfall for Kentucky. I think it broke records for the largest amount of snow in a 24 hour period. We get small amounts of snow, a dusting to a couple of inches, throughout the winter. Some winters more than others. We only get double digit snow totals once every 10-15 years!
It’s supposed to be so cold this week. The snow isn’t going to be melting any time soon.
