The Great Storm of 'Snow Nine

Yesterday Ryan and I hunkered down at home while the massive snow storm that hit most of the East coast came to our town. It was the first time in over a year that both of us had a Saturday off together, and it was absolutely wonderful to be forced to relax and do nothing. We watched Christmas movies all day, and our neighbors even brought us homemade chicken dumpling soup and cake. In short, it was perfect. Today may not be as fun as we have to shovel ourselves out of the 20 plus inches of pretty white stuff, but it was definitely worth it yesterday! 

I took lots of pictures last night and again this morning as we walked to and from Mass. All of the snow makes our town look like it came straight out of a Christmas card. I think I'm in love ...

So beautiful

Seriously, isn't this just gorgeous?

I hope everyone else who was hit by this storm is safe and warm!

I first read your title and thought you were talking about me! After all, I feel that I am the greatest Storm of '09 :) Great pictures and I am really jealous of all the snow. We just have a light dusting that is hanging around.

I normally don't like this kind of weather, but it was just absolutely gorgeous. We, too, stayed in and watched Christmas movies all day and night.

Katie, I have really enjoyed reading your blog. Would you please e-mail me at and tell me what little town the pictures were taken for this particular post?

Read my '2010 Challenge' post on my blog and you'll see why I want to know.

Thank you!
