Snow

The second installment of Project 52 - recording our life in photos for 2011, one week at a time.
I heard on the radio this morning that 49 of the 50 states have snow on the ground right now. Indiana is not the one state lucky enough to miss out. Since my kids gravitate to snow like birds to air, I followed them with a camera.

Lex took off his hat and gloves, unzipped his coat, and took off running through the snow. Not quite sure what he was thinking. In the background you can see the outline of the ponies burying themselves in hay.

Hunter and Gwen started covering poor Artemis in snow.

Artemis finally deciding she had enough snow for one day

Since it never reached above freezing, I'm not sure where these came from. But they're massive and quite a spectacle, hanging off our house.

While the kids were out playing in the snow, Callie was inside stuffing her face with m and m's. That girl loves her crunchy chocolate candy.

This week was over with before it began. But at least I have pictures to prove that we did indeed take some time to enjoy it.

awesome pictures and beautiful snow...maybe Lex was wanting to participate in the "Bales Blizzard Run"....we usually do this on the 1st snow, but I wasn't up to it this time (we run nearly naked down the street...we have shorts & tank tops on...no shoes)

The roof is not as insulated as it should be (heat is escaping the house) and is melting snow (upper snow acts a insulation), the melted snow is dripping down to the gutters, the edge of the roof is colder and causing a freeze. This could be of concern since the ice also gets under the shingles and can damage the roof edges. Been there and had that. Your situation could be different but....

You're so right Ann!! That's exactly what the problem is. Kevin keeps telling me we need more insulation, but for some reason that hasn't been a priority. Hopefully once we finish what we need to re-finance our loan, that will be next on our list!!
