Polar Vortex Take Two.

Last week was insane. We had an impromptu week-long break because of the snow...well, mostly the snow, the first day was prematurely called and we had a day out because it rained. What's next? School canceled for an overcast sky?
Zach sent me this. 
Anyways, I went to the Miners to wait out the three day storm. (Because apparently Emily and I can't survive a snow day without each other haha.)

On the road again. 
 On the first day, Emily, Zach, Abby, and I reveled in the dippin-dots like snow by sledding, lugging, and snowboarding down the driveway on a skim board and cookie sheets. Later, maybe on the second day even, Emily and I walked to a nearby neighborhood to see our friends Sara, Jordan, and Caylee. On our way back home (we went the long way on the way there) on the main road, we decided to explore a little patch of bamboo we spotted that was weighted down from the snow. Little did we know that it was a portal to Asia. It was so thick and tall and went on way further than we expected. It was SO neat to find that little-known secret nature spot. And all covered in snow! Just gorgeous!




 We would always pick up the icicles hanging down and eat them like Popsicles. yum! 
My eyelashes are stealing the show. 
 The last day of the week, or maybe not, it doesn't matter- after everything already mentioned on a new day, one of Zach and Emily's friends walked over form the neighborhood we visited the previous day. Our plan was to walk to the QT on the end of the street at an intersection to meet with another friend! However, we arrived a lot earlier (before the other friend even left his house...) so we just kept walking. We ended up walking all the way to his house. In the snow. In rainboots. Up hills. 
Walking to QT.
4.6. Let me say that again 4.6 (for the record, those numbers would be capitalized if it were possible, use your imagination) MILES later, we decided to just chill at Wesley's instead of heading back another 4.6 miles to the Miners. Good call. We watched an obscure Olympic hockey game and played with their new husky puppy. After a little while, Cullen's dad came to get us (THANK THE LORD FOR CULLEN'S DAD DRIVING US BACK!) and we had yummy lunch back at home base. 

Emily and I took much deserved showers while the guys shoveled the drive. We were all exhausted so we settled in to watch "Psych" and later "House at the End of the Street" which I mocked to no end. After that I left. And that is the story of snow week February 2014.

Not included: Emily and I upholding tradition and making cookies and a Psych marathon provided by Netflix.
