Snowmageddon

Posted on by Amanda

Snowmageddon has struck again! This is the second Wednesday in a row that I have spent at home thanks to inclement weather. I am not complaining, I am grateful.

Surprise, surprise… it snowed… and snowed some more… and then some more. Snow can be very beautiful, but it can also be dangerous. At home, I stay indoors whenever snow is on the ground.
