14 Inches Of Snow On The First Day Of Spring

Poor robin!

Well, so much for the first day of spring! 

A few weeks ago they called for a big snowstorm and we got...absolutely nothing. 

Mother Nature sure made up for it yesterday by giving us fourteen inches of snow! It was that fine, blizzardy snow that just keeps falling all day long, and we enjoyed every minute of it. There's nothing better than when school calls to announce a snow day. All of a sudden I'm seven years old again. But with much better cooking skills of course :)

The afternoon before, I hit the grocery store and stocked up on the essentials; garlic, lemon, French baguette, and some Emmental and Gruyere.

My girls and I made an amazing traditional cheese fondue the night before the storm, and it was amazing. Between the three of us we ate nearly the entire thing!

I also remembered to stock up on birdseed and suet, and it always pays off for both the birds, and for us as well...

We got to watch a family of woodpeckers visit our feeders all day. 

This morning it was beautiful.

Were you in the path of the storm? 
How much snow did you get? 

Have a great week!
