Jason, Madison and I have been enjoying a snow day thanks to Winter Storm Juno, although I wouldn’t exactly say we’re snowed “in” – we definitely spent some time outside today!
I thought I’d write a quick update and share some pictures for those of you not in the Northeast. (If you are in the Northeast I’m sure you’ve seen more than enough of this white stuff!)
Yesterday when I got home from work Jason and I headed down to the beach for a quick walk right as it began snowing…
…overnight the wind and snow picked up and we woke up to over a foot of snow and hurricane force winds!
Since it was supposed to continue to snow all day we decided to try to dig our cars out before they got buried any deeper…
…not that we were going anywhere – there’s a travel ban right now!
Our run club usually meets on Tuesday nights, but not surprisingly it was canceled. I jokingly text a few of my run club friends and said “what the heck, when we moved here you told us you run in any weather!”
Well that led to a discussion about actually meeting for a run!
Of course because of the afore mentioned travel ban, no one could actually drive to meet, but one of our friends lives about a half a mile from us in the same development so we figured run to meet up? Why not!
The fun wasn’t over yet though!
Our favorite local surf shop where we buy all our paddleboard stuff is having a snow day photo contest to win gift certificates, so of course I needed to enter!
When we moved to Cape Cod everyone kept “warning” us that winter was very different than the summer here and that it wasn’t all beaches and lobsters (ummm, duh!) – it was making me CRAZY!
I decided to poke a little fun at that and submitted this picture with the caption, “When we moved to Cape Cod everyone warned us how different it was in the winter, but this is ridiculous!”
Gotta entertain ourselves somehow, right?!
Right now it’s still snowing (I’d say we have about 2 feet!) and the wind is howling, but fortunately we still have power so we’re getting ready to heat up some vegetarian chili (RECIPE HERE!) and snuggle in with a movie for the night!
