Alright, so we don’t exactly celebrate Boxing Day in the States, but we definitely experienced a blizzard on the day that it is observed. Temperatures plummeted, snow descended, and the wind howled beginning in the afternoon and continued for the better part of two days. It has been downright frigid.
Still, we did need to get the kids outside to prevent them from getting anymore stir crazy. Plus, the post-Christmas pall might have taken grip if we hadn’t. We really couldn’t go anywhere, and it took considerable effort just to dig out the driveway with the drifts building. Those drifts proved a bit treacherous for the kiddos as one of the photos will attest. They could hardly remain standing.
