4th day without school for quinn allen brown!!!
so we woke up tuesday morning to find this much snow outside... and that school was cancelled!!! we laughed and laughed thinking how silly these kentuckians are for cancelling school with only that much snow.
but little did we know what was about to come forth. see, there is something out here that they like to call "freezing rain". it is something that i have NEVER, in my entire life, experienced until now. it has turned everything into ice. we are living in an ice world! everyone's yards looked like ice skating rinks! quinn even tried to make a snow angel but couldn't break the ice to do it. there are ice sickles on everything!and then came the snow. wednesday we woke up to a winter wonderland and jumped for joy again because we knew he wouldn't have school again.
but the ice became too heavy for the tree branches to hold which caused trees and tree branches to fall all over town. we have woods right behind our house and if you stood outside and made no noise, you could here tree branches falling every 10 seconds. it has caused quite a bit of damage around the city and we even had a branch fall on our garage. luckily it didn't fall far enough to damage it.
also, the ice is becoming too heavy for the powerlines to hold so there are powerlines down all over the place. there are now 607.000 people in kentucky without power!!! i don't know how we are getting so lucky, but we had power with the last storm and we haven't lost it yet with this one. we are housing my brother and his roommate who lost their power and feeding dinner to all of our friends at night who aren't as fortunate to have power. since we do have power, we are loving life right now....especially quinn. no school for 4 days and we don't even know if they'll go back on monday. oh, and it is gorgeous outside. a true winter wonderland....probably for only those that have power i guess.
quinn decided to take jayden outside and make a snowman.
SIKE! just kidding! it's a mini one! just j-dogg's size!
he loved being outside and loved to stick his tongue out to catch snow flakes. it was hilarious! and i loved how his eyelashes would catch the snow flakes.
