YAAAAAAAAAAY! Philadelphia's First BIG Snowfall Of the Season


Yes! Yes! Yes!

We had our first REALLY BIG snowfall of the season over the weekend and I was fortunate enough to have been scheduled off at work, so I got to spend TWO days romping and frolicking in it.

I had heard on Thursday of last week that we would be getting some snow over the weekend, but I had no idea it would be THAT MUCH SNOW.

Here, take a look. This is what I woke up to on Saturday morning when I looked out my windows...


I totally freaked out by jumping up and down, clapping my hands, and screaming like a 6-year old, "YAAAAAAAAAAAAY....IT'S SNOWING...IT'S SNOWING!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I immediately jumped in the shower, got dressed, then put on my warm down coat, and then RAN outside to enjoy it. I texted both my brother and closest friend in Florida to let them know that it was SNOWING. I even sent them pictures.

What I loved about this snowfall in particular was that the snowflakes were HUGE. It was also very blustery, so the snow blew directly into my face; attaching itself into my eyebrows, eyelashes, and beard. By the time I got to Trader Joe's, I looked like something from March of the Penguins in Antarctica.

I took this photo with my cell phone...


The whole time I walked to Trader Joe's, I kept smiling and singing, "Let it snow...let it snow...let it snow..."

Later that morning after putting my groceries away, I went back outside and walked around the city and took pictures. I'm surprised my camera didn't get destroyed by the heavy, wet snow because at one point I looked down at my Canon hanging around my neck and saw it covered in WHITE.

Anyway. Here are some photographs of my first day in the snow...



These next five photographs were taken in and around City Hall







I took this one for my brother Tom because he loved this Irish pub (Finn McCools) when he came to visit in October
