Snapshot Saturday 2/15

Snapshot Saturday is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.

We had yet another big snow storm here (big by Delaware standards) on Thursday with yet another snow day at school. Here's a fun look back at big storms, then and now...

(Anyone else live in western NY in the late 70's?  The Blizzard of '78 was a BIG one - some people had to climb out second-story windows onto snowbanks to get out of their houses!)

This is the house I grew up in, in Rochester, NY - the renowned Blizzard of '78

My Dad trying to dig our cars out from under many feet of snow! 
Even my little sister pitched in! Good thing we had a 2-story split-level.
This week's big snowfall in Delaware, with about a foot of heavy, wet snow.
My husband shoveling the driveway, much as my Dad did 35 years ago!

And my teen son helping

Quite a difference between western New York and Delaware, huh?

Hope you are enjoying a nice weekend and staying warm!


  1. I'm beginning to see that when it comes to blizzards and heavy, wet snow, the Eastern U.S. has it worse than we living in Western Canada. Want an escape? Virtually, at least?

  2. Wow! That's a lot of snow! Thanks for posting the look back at big snowfalls from your past. The only time I've seen that much snow was at Mount Hood, Oregon. We stayed in the lodge, and snow was way up the sides of the building. The big fireplace sure felt good.

  3. I grew up in Maine and now I'm in VA, so yes there is quite a difference. Cute pictures!

  4. Your photos really put this storm in perspective. Wow. 1978. That was a blizzard.

  5. The snow you are getting is just crazy! While the rest of the country is under snow and cold, we're suffering from a drought here in So Cal!
