Wordless Wednesday

I know lots of you are dealing with much of the same. 
Lucky you to those who are not. :)
Day #3 of the kiddos being out of school due to the weather.  
The 'after' picture of our cars when the storm was done.

What used to be a perfectly good mailbox
(seems ours gets knocked over at least once a year from something).

The inside of our window was frozen!

I officially hate snow. I hate being stuck in the house because we get a ticket if we are caught driving. I hate winter. This weather is leaving me less than jolly lol.

Chatty Crone said...

They have two weeks off and now 3 more days! Gosh you got a lot of snow there. sandie

Stacey C said...

My goodness!!! I won't complain about the cold here in Louisiana. I do wish you could send some of that snow down here. If I have to have the cold, I'd like a little snow with it :) Stay warm!

Colette S said...

That is just insane!
I remember our vehicles looking like that when I went to visit the inlaws once in AZ. Crazy!

Bundle up Rosey!

Summer home. Winter fly to an island somewhere. Life would be something eh :)

Colette S said...

Stacy it's bone chilling! Because of the humidity, but I can't see how I'd operate under all that snow Rosey is getting either :)

Christina Morley said...

That window is crazy! I've been through snow-pile-high winters in Iowa and Virginia, but I don't remember that kind of ice on the window. I bet the kids are loving not having school. :)

Masshole Mommy said...

Oh man, 3 days?? That's going to stink come time for them to get out at the end of the year.

Brian Miller said...

wow...we are delayed this morning cause its still cold...but not the snow...that snow is awesome...i want to go sledding!!!!

Janine Huldie said...

I am so over the cold and winter right now. Yesterday, it was so cold and windy that walking ten feet made my eyes burn just walking 10 feet. So, I am definitely dreaming of spring here now!

stevebethere said...

OMG I don't mind snow but that's ridiculous hope your keeping as warm as possible, it has been on our news here :-)

Throws a snowball @ Rosey and leaves blog ;-)

mail4rosey said...

Why is it the boys who always throw the snowballs??? *says the mom of three boys and one girl...the girl who runs along side her mom to be rid of the snowballs thrown by the boys* :)

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Wow that's some serious snow! Snow angels!!!! :)

Cascia Talbert said...

Wow! You really got a lot of snow!

Louis la Vache said...

uh what was that about "Global Warming" Al Gore and the Utopian Statists have been trying to convince us of?....

We are once again Wordless on Wednesday on San Francisco Bay.

Wendy S said...

Seems like all of North America is under a deep freeze!!

Any chance of Detroit thawing by the weekend?? I'm arriving on Sunday :)

mail4rosey said...

prolly nuh uh ;) Welcome to the cold. :)

Sandee said...

We are not experiencing anything like this. It's dry here and for the most part the sunshine has been out. The afternoon are short sleeve weather for many. It's chilly, but not freezing.

You all stay warm and have a great day. ☺

Secondary Roads said...

Schools here closed too. We've had schools closed this long, but that was 35 years ago.

mail4rosey said...

3 days, and they call the night before (so I don't have to hover over the morning news). Unheard of. It is pretty cold though!

posh said...

I remember one year the plow taking out our mailbox. Now we are lucky to see the plow go by our house.

mail4rosey said...

It doesn't usually go by ours, and the one time it did... lol. All's well that ends well though, I put it back together yesterday and it's fine. Not the case in years past when a car/truck/whatever has taken it out at the stick!

Pat Hatt said...

Yuck is still the best word to describe that, thankfully we had lots of rain which got rid of much of it

Amanda McMahon said...

I remember my . gamma 's mailbox getting crushed by a snow plow once a year at least. She had a guard thing put up around it. :)

Tiffany Collins said...

I know the feeling. I work in a school and we had no kids yesterday but they are back today. But it is still so cold I wish I was at home lol

Stefanie said...

Oh my gosh- I cannot even imagine! I grew up in the desert so never experienced this type of cold! Good luck and stay warm.

Kristie said...

That stinks about your mailbox! If the Road Commission hit it, I think they'll replace it? Our mail just came for the first time since the snow today...I actually didn't even expect them since the roads still aren't clear, but it wasn't our usual person-this one had an SUV instead of just a car :-)

Karen Glatt said...

We got some snow yesterday only about 2 inches, but you think people would know how to drive in it! So many wrecks. WOW! You have a lot of snow! And the window was frozen. Gosh, I hope you warm up soon! I bet your son loves the snow!

mail4rosey said...

When I thought the whole box was down (post and all) I did contact them just to ask, and was instantly told we're out of city boundaries and damage from plows is not their responsibility. I figured they'd say that, but thought I'd try. Turned out the post was still intact so putting it back together was easy. :)

We just got our mail today too, first time since the storm hit. Stay warm over that a'way. :) We're doing the same.

mail4rosey said...

He does love the snow. All the kids do, but it's still too cold to go out. Maybe over the weekend. :)

And you're right, people can't drive in the snow. I am not so great at it either (though I know it, lol) and avoid it whenever I can!! :)

Joanna Sormunen said...

Those pictures made me go brrrr.... I'm glad that I'm in a warmer climate. I can't stand cold!

Anonymous said...

Our schools were closed for 2 days due to the cold it sucks!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Holy moly! We don't have the crazy snow that you got, but we did get bitterly cold. Luckily it's starting to warm up. Today the 20s felt down right balmy!

Dina said...

Holy smokes we only got a 1/2 inch and the frozen temps your snow is awe inspiring. Kudos to you for making it through the "storm"! My kids went back to school late today for the first time. I'm just thankful I get to be home with them when they are out.

Lisa Ladrido said...

Yikes! I love snow but it is probably because we hardly get any up here in WA! Stay warm!

Stefany T said...

The window is crazy!!! We had 2 snow days and most schools around us are closed today too. We ended up with about 10 inches at my house.

MyKidsGuide said...

Wow, you sure got a lot of snow! We got a ton last week, even though they only originally called for like 3 inches. Plus it's been crazy cold here!

Chubskulit Rose said...

Love that frozen shot. Our doors are frozen as well when we opened it yesterday morning.

Faith and Family Reviews said...

It's been crazy cold here and we have tons of snow. -20 or -30 or -40 with wind chill. We are finally above 0 and at 12 degrees today. By the weekend we should see the 30s again.

Epic said...

What great shots! Are you getting as tired of winter as I am though? It's been super cold here and I'm ready to break up with winter. :)

Ave T said...

Wow, that's a lot of snow! We never get snow here in Las Palmas. But there is almost no snow in Estonia this year either.

Momma Lew said...

EEK!!!!!!! That is just horrible! It's been around -10 with the windchill here in NJ, but hopefully will be warming up tomorrow!

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

Wow, and I'm complaining about 35 degrees

Kylie Worthington said...

It looks about the same here in ND... between snow+ -50 wind chills I am SO OVER this winter.

Julie Corbisiero said...

Hi Rosey, wow I due hope it gets better where you live! Stay safe & warm.
Julie

Launna said...

WOW, thankfully it has NOT been that cold here... I really hope it warms up for you there... for everyone... it has been bitter cold in the mid west... it is time for a little bit of a thaw soon :) Enjoy the rest of the week <3

Pam said...

Luckily we only got a scattering of snow, but it has been colder here than anyone can remember! Stay warm!

JoAnn SweetPepperRose said...

I could not function where is snows. My mind reels at the thought of living and driving in snowy places. So glad I'm down in Georgia! We're cold but thank goodness no snow ;-)

Kimber Matherne said...

Oh man that is insane! Your poor little mailbox!

M Clark said...

Wow, frozen windows!!! You don't need to say a word, all you have to do is show us the photos. Be careful and stay safe, I hope the weather improves soon.

Anonymous said...

I know I am crazy, but I was born and raised in Florida and would love to have at least one year to see seasons change and deal with snow. Then I could decide which I prefer. Stay warm.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

Wow that is crazy - I've been hearing bits from my friends over in the US about the storm and it seems horrid! I know a couple without water x

Binky said...

Snowplow vs mailbox? Or maybe just a sliding car. But I guess we know who lost that one.

Elisebet F said...

Brrrrrr! I grew up in Northwest Ontario, and I don't miss that snow and ice at all! We got down to about 19 degrees here in Virginia Beach, but that was all, thankfully. Stay safe!

Anonymous said...

Our snow was completely melted on Monday, snowed on Friday then gone Monday's weather was 55 degree so by the time the cold air hit on Tuesday the snow was gone

Felicia Carter said...

The snow I could take, but all of this ice has to go! Stay warm.

Cynthia Landrie said...

So sorry about your mailbox! The weather has really been crazy lately.

Angela said...

Yes, my house looks almost identical to that and we just got word that the kids are off school again tomorrow! They have yet to return after Christmas break!

Mom Blog Society said...

We've been snowed in for the entire week. I hope we can go out by this weekend as we are starting to go stir crazy here.

Amanda McMahon said...

WOW - Inside of the windows! We're dealing with a lot of smog today

Self Sagacity said...

I heard that the snow storm was coming. I left Mich satJan04. Thank goodness. :-)

Kay Adeola said...

I love the snow but not like this,i hope it soon gets better for you,and your poor mail box lol,we do not really have them like that here most of us the man will but it through the letter box of our front door which i am glad for as i would hate if something happened to the box and mail lol.

becca said...

wow too cold and this is why i live in Fl but is beautiful to looks at

Lulu G said...

Happy New Year Rosey! I hope you're all ok. We keep hearing about the extreme weather in the US. Italy and the top of France have had odd weather too and we may be getting snow in the UK next week. We are so unprepared for it here and everything grinds to a halt, it's silly when you guys have it bad. Take care. x

Michelle Garrett said...

Not out totally but delayed start 2 days in a row. I must admit I was okay with getting to sleep in and be a little late to work with a valid reason :)

diane grubbs said...

stay warm it is cold here but not like that

mail4rosey said...

Ours are going back today for the first time since the Christmas break started. :)

Ashley Gill said...

I feel like I am a little lucky because I did not have to deal with that much snow. The biggest storm we got as just 3 inches.. I can handle 3 inches! It'll all be melted by this weekend with our 50 degrees forecast! I hope you are warming up too!

alissa apel said...

You got slammed with snow and ice! We didn't get a whole lot here. I hope you have a warm up soon. But...then the snow will melt, freeze back up, and make more ice. YIKES! Stay safe!

Your son could be a model.

mail4rosey said...

It's not a relationship I'm happy being in either. Bring on the warm weather, I say! :)

mail4rosey said...

Snowplow 1, mailbox 0. But it wasn't broken at the stick, so it went back together with ease (thank goodness, it's $50+ a pop to replace them when you must...and the frozen ground would make it hard to install).

mail4rosey said...

Brilliant timing!! :)

mail4rosey said...

I've seen places come to a halt for snowflakes. It makes me laugh. :)

mail4rosey said...

I don't belong to Zulily, but I love that blanket, that's cool!! My son IS a model, he's a mail4rosey blog review model, hahahahaha :) You're a gem. :)

Le-an Lai Lacaba said...

Woah. I've seen this all over the news,and it really is devastating. Phew. Take care!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

Most of our snow is gone, but it is so cold here that all you want to do is curl up and keep warm.

TaMara Sloan said...

Wow, that's pretty cold for the INSIDE of your window to freeze! I won't complain any more about our cold snap - we had no snow or ice, thankfully. Thanks for sharing at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

We've been dealing with much of the same here in NYC. The only difference is that they hardly ever close the schools here.

Heather Estey said...

wowwwwwwwww. That is totally Minnesota-weather worthy and while I can post pictures that are similar, reading where you are makes me amazed. Hope everything gets back to normal soon...........
Blessings to you,
~Heather

Amie Miner said...

Snow sucks...living in New Brunswick, Canada....we get a lot of the dreadful white stuff. Although staying in & watching a movie with a hot chocolate is a nice way to deal with Winter

Katherines Corner said...

stay warm my sweet friend. Thank you so much for helping to make the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop so much fun Hugs!

Kenya G. Johnson @ KenyaGJohnson.com said...

Wow! Last Wednesday we had a two hour delay for "too cold", that was new for us and that was two days in a row. I was so glad it didn't rain, that would have been very bad. The rain came and went before temp dropped so we didn't have any ice to deal with.

~ Noelle said...

all we are getting is ICE - broxton wants snow so bad he just keeps looking out the window - its breaking my heart.
hope we get a little snow tonight.
