and the heavens parted and SNOW came down

The biggest snow the northeast has seen in 5 years and probably 10 if you think about shear volume.

20+ inches of snow fell and covered our neighborhoods with a white blanket. everything was beautiful, all covered and quiet. I was snowed in for 4 DAYS!

my older sister and I shoveling snow…i met neighbors i never knew existed! we all helped eachother and one neighbor brought muffins while the other made coffee for everyone… THANK YOU JESUS!

This season really creates miracle moments!! 🙂

that was amazing!

and end the day with Snow angels!
