Life In A Snow Globe

Ever wonder what life would be like inside a snow globe? Me neither, but Mother Nature decided to show us anyway.  A swirling snow descended on Chicago yesterday, so our afternoon walk became an afternoon arctic expedition. After just a few minutes

Ever wonder what life would be like inside a snow globe? Me neither, but Mother Nature decided to show us anyway.  A swirling snow descended on Chicago yesterday, so our afternoon walk became an afternoon arctic expedition.

After just a few minutes outside Eko and I were both blanketed in snow

The snow caused a near white out, which for a time was beautiful

But then it just got ridiculous

We snapped one last photo and then quickly packed up.  If we stayed out any longer I think I might have lost Eko

And then with a hop, skip and a jump we headed home

I don’t know about you, but this winter is starting to feel a lot like the scene from Forest Gump where Forest lists all the rain he’s seen.  Replace “rain” with “snow” and that’s basically what we’re dealing with here.

Welcome to Chicago

Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. But this winter you can be sure whatever you get includes snow!

    Yikes!!!! Stay warm and safe guys…My hubby and I have a family song about Trev entitled “Hop, Skip and a Jump” giggles!!!! Your pics are wonderful!!!!

  3. we feel your pain my furiends, we feel your pain! Living 34 miles north of Detroit we are right with ya!!! A thaw (and now flooding!) is coming this week! Hang in there!

  4. Eko is that an icicle on your nose? We have only endless rain. Please stay warm and let’s hope that Miss Spring comes soon.

  5. That first selfie is just wonderful! You are brave explorers but deserve some Spring action soonest.

  6. Sending you a bit of warmth from Sydney Australia guys. Love the photos!!!

    Mom took Bailie for an hour walk in the snowstorm on the weekend. They had a blast. We just love all the snow, I know, we are the exception, but we really enjoy it. Mom says when she lived in Bavaria, Germany, she did actually get scared one winter as it snowed for 16 days straight, all day, every day and she started to panic that it would never end, so this in nothing in comparison! Now I’m just pissed because I hurt my foot and can’t go out to play for a couple days.

  8. […] some rainy weather recently in Sydney recently and some other wild weather elsewhere (check out Elko’s post from Chicago… brrrr) this one is an exercise that can be done instead on a stable surface and bring some […]

    The weather sure is crazy right now.

  10. We’re in the same boat as you. We’re getting snow almost every day – it’s so deep out there right now, we’d lose Daisy in it if she sank in. But it’s so frozen that both she and DD can walk on top of almost 2 feet of accumulated snow – it’s crazy! The thaw will most likely result in some pretty intense flooding!

  11. Mercy, you really are getting hammered down there, Yikes. We had non-stop snow all November and December then in January it was insanely cold. But so February (knock wood) has been ‘almost’ delightful.
    I love that tennis net hopping Eko. I say Weeee, every time he jumps over 😀 Get back under that blanket! Quick! Turn it on Eko! hehehe
