So as many of you know this weekend the East Coast including Northern VA was hit with a MASSIVE snowstorm!! We haven't seen snow like this in over 10 years and I must say it was pretty exciting. It started snowing Friday night and kept up full force for over 24 hours. When we woke up Saturday morning there was probably a good 10 inches already piled up.
We eventually made our way outside to get a jumpstart on the shoveling and cleaning of the cars which was a good thing because we got probably another 10 inches (TWSS) on top of our newly cleaned off cars. I tried to be cute and throw a small snowball at Kristian while he was shoveling and he responded by essentially body slamming me into a snow pile which in my opinion was not a fair form of retaliation!!
We took the cat outside and tossed him into a nice snow pile. It was pretty funny watching him crawl through the snow and then race back upstairs to the condo. Between putting Christmas paraphernalia on his head and throwing him into snow, I'm convinced he's either going to try to run away or just start pissing in the corner.
We spent the rest of the day lounging around the house, eating and drinking. When the power went out for about 2 hours we had to find other ways to entertain ourselves which included Kristian trying to serenade me with his guitar, playing Backgammon, and a few rounds of 20 questions (which I basically kick ass at). It's kind of fun being forced to find other ways to amuse ourselves that don't involve the tv or internet.
Today, Kristian was a good Samaritan and drove one neighbor to the store to by diapers for his kid and then helped shovel out at least 6 neighbors cars. He's a good guy :)
As of now I'm planning to work from home tomorrow and will hopefully be able to finish my Christmas shopping sometime before Friday.
Enjoy some pictures from our weekend in the snow:
