I think we'll be able to build one of these today.....

Snow fort with friends & family-- 1958
Not that I want to! We are expecting 10+ inches of snow to start falling at any time. Today is my only day off til after Xmas & I was out early running errands so I'd be home before the snow. The grocery store was just starting to get busy when I was leaving.
Photo taken in 1958 when I was 10--I enjoyed being out in the snow then; now , not really.....My brother is on the right with me next to him.
Don't worry--for those of you missing the snow, Iwill brave the elements & take some photos! PS It's now 12:30 pm and the snow has started

Ann, one time when Michael was little and we lived in Omaha, NE, we had a spring blizzard with drifts higher than the six foot fence. He and his friends made snow tunnels and forts. We got freaked out by the tunnels and put a stop to that, but boy did they have fun! Love that picture! :)

A snow fort - I can barely imagine having that much snow! Bet it will be beautiful, and with all that ice, it'll probably stick around awhile. You may well have a white Christmas.

Yikes. For us here in Portland the forecast is calling for 4 - 10 inches of snow this weekend followed by freezing rain. That will be a nightmare for sure. I hope that I can get to the airport on the 26th to head to Isla.
