Seriously there has been so little snow this year that I didn't know what the stuff looked like anymore. We are now blanketed in a cool white sticky mess of it, ideal for snow balls, snow men, snow fortification, and FINALY, at long last snow blowing.

Okay so maybe it is just the Y chromosome but snowblowers are the pressure washer of the winter, and mine has been sitting all pristine and unused since its arrival this Christmas. I realize 1) the amount of snow we got, and 2) the size of my current drive way don't really warrant a snow blowing, but dammit I wanted to, and dammit I did, and it was good. :P

Our young monkey has established what snow angel's are, although his proficiency is more makes them more snow arm flanging, but we are working on it. He had a good romp in the snow until are lawn looked like a family circus cartoon, and his cheeks were red, but fun was had by all. (sorry no pictures, he was moving fast in low light they just didn't work out.)

Erin pointed out, and this will not make any sense if you don't play Bioshock, but it would be funny/creepy if the little sisters in that game pointed to a splicer trapped in ice and exclaimed in there little scary voice "look Mr Bubbles a snow angel."

As for the house, a little bit of work, they basically finished framing the last of the exterior walls, specifically the great room, which here unto now was looking more like an awesome porch you had to pass through to get upstairs:

The upstairs hall kind of cracked me up with the snow, it was a touch on the treacherous inside, I'm glad that the construction workers have taken the time to build hand rails on the temporary stairs.

Of course, my favourite piece of all the framing arrived as well, the trusses, I love trusses, no seriously, first year statics, was awesome! (I am actually being serious, statics was one of my favourite courses, for lay persons, Statics is effectively the Physics of stuff that under normal circumstances isn't moving, as well as all that free body diagram stuff.)
