This was my first real blizzard and I didn’t know quite what to expect. Thankfully I didn’t lose power (I was not looking forward to the idea of drinking hot tea in my parka, indoors) and all that happened was we got quite a lot of snow. It was really beautiful actually, so I figured I’d share a few photos. 🙂

I am now indoors, warm and toasty, and going to make a homemade king cake, ignoring the fact that we might get up to 5 more inches of snow tonight.
