It all started so innocently. The snow began to fall mid-afternoon on Friday. We went out (walking) to a friend's house at about 7:30 and there was only about 4 inches of snow on the ground. There was a bit of wind, but not too bad - nothing us New Englanders can't handle.
When we woke up on Saturday, however, it was a winter wonderland! There was a solid 2 to 3 feet of snow on the ground. Cars were buried and the roads were just a mess. That morning we had some pancakes and coffee and enjoyed being snowed in.
There were only foot prints heading down to the main road that would eventually turn into sledding hills :)
After hanging out in the afternoon, catching up on television, we finally watched Bottle Shock. Since we had visited Chateau Montelena, it made it that much more fun to see. Of course, we had to open the bottle we had on hand as well. Between that and some Cowgirl Creamery cheese, we had ourselves a lovely evening.
On Sunday, we woke up to road conditions that weren't any better than the day before, but luckily we don't have a car to dig out, so we made the most of it! The snow made it very easy to tire Holly out. With no traffic, our street was still a playground. We ventured out to Warren Tavern for some lunch and to cure some cabin fever but not much further. Indulging in some Magner's Cider and Fish n' Chips made for a lovely afternoon.
Nemo definitely provided plenty of snow to satisfy even the most hardy New Englanders. Hopefully you all are finally dug out and safe and sound.
