Our First Blizzard

December 7th brought us our first real Flagstaff Blizzard. It was a doozey! We got two feet of snow in less than 24 hours, accompanied by 30-45 mile per hour winds! It was enough for ADOT to close the highway that John needs to travel home from work. Fortunately he was able to hop off the train in Flagstaff and a friend braved the conditions to bring him home to us. Will and I watched in the early morning hours as John walked up the hill to our house. He was sinking in the snow up to his thighs! Boy were we glad when he was inside, warming by the fire and our whole family was safe and sound together. Dad built Will a snow tunnel

Nobody is too young to shovel around here!

Getting hit with a snowball is fun
Throwing a snowball is better!

It's pretty deep!
These two guys moved a lot of snow!!
