God must like me cold & lonely

He must! Why did he dump 24 inches of snow within 24 hours? On the ONE NIGHT MY BEST FRIEND was flying in to see me?

All the flipping Ohio airports were closed. Only emergency vehicles were allowed on the streets at night.

The only way she could have gotten to see me was by cross country skiing 500 miles.

It is completely ironic that my husband and I were high fiving each other last weekend. "Dude, we saved 300 hundred dollars this winter by not using a plow service and it is already March!"

Hmmmmm....

It is a good thing that both my best friend and the mister were born in August. I can get a great deal on skis and snowblowers for their birthdays!

Sorry your friend didn't make it in. Luckily your bf and Mr. OhMommy have bdays in a GREAT month to buy snowblowers and skis.

Kelly said...

OH NO!!! What rotten timing!! I hope she was able to get a raincheck or something so she can fly in soon!

April said...

Well, that blows!!

Hope you guys can re-schedule pronto.

Smoochiefrog said...

I'm sorry your friend didn't get to make it. Hopefully she'll get to reschedule that flight.

Karen said...

Snow sucks. I'm just sick and tired of the whiteness. And don't think for one minute you're going to blow that my way.

Stella said...

Oh I'm so sorry! That just stinks!!

The snow does look pretty....

Irene said...

Yeah, we got it after you. Although luckily the brunt of the storm was about 30 miles north, we only had about 5 inches, up north a few miles they got over 2 feet.

Let's hope this was the last big shibang of the season.

Janice said...

We had 42 degree temps here. i love it and can't wait for it to look like spring too.

Wendi said...

Oh no!!!

Not on your big weekend!

I had hoped to see a flake or two this year... but,
Not. Even. One!

Looks like you got all of it!

The good news: You have some great photo opportunities with the kids!

Stacey @Real World Mom said...

I'm so sorry your plans were snowed out! That just totally sucks! Another reason to not like winter!

The pics are totally adorable though!

Cecily R said...

Oh, I am so sorry!!! Snow is serioulsy the raspberry seed in my wisdom tooth this year. I wish sunny skies and free snow plowing service (because you are so classy) to blow your way...

Cecily R said...

P.S. I LOVE the window shot!! Fabulous!

just jamie said...

No way! You didn't get to see her. So sad.

Oh, and I'm with Cecily -- great hand on the window shot.

Beth said...

Ahhh.. I feel your pain. I so feel your pain. I live right on the OH/PA state line. We got snow too.

Thank GOD though that we didn't get that much THIS time!

I'm so sorry your friend and you didn't get to get together. I feel sad for you. Plus, I was completely looking forward to your posts about the get-together!

**hugs**

Steph said...

So after all that you didn't get to see your girlfriend??? What a bummer! At least it looks like the kids had fun!

Flea said...

Oh my WORD!! That's beautiful! And it sucks to high heaven!

Jenni said...

WOW! That's a lot of snow!

I'm so sorry you couldn't meet up with your friend!

Don Mills Diva said...

What a drag that you didn't get your girls night out! Sorry!

Kimmylyn said...

OhMommy.. that really sucks.. I am sorry..

BUT, that pic of baby girls hand on the window is priceles.. LOVE IT!!

Holly said...

Cute pictures, but bummer about the flights. I'm so sorry she couldn't come. Can you reschedule?

Kristen said...

So sorry that you got snow! That totally sucks. Hope that you get 80 degree days to melt it soon!!

I am dreaming of the sun too.............

Amy said...

I'm so sad that the snow ruined your plans. I hope you can reschedule soon.

Ruth said...

Oooh, that was the storm that many were freaking out about up here (Detroit area), but it missed us. Funny how people seem to panic over a storm, when we should be so used to them by now. Oh well. Sorry it spoiled your plans! (Nice pix, by the way!) -Ruth

Natalie said...

Aww, that's too bad. Is she able to come at all?

imbeingheldhostage said...

I am so sorry-- I just saw on the news (they're even talking about your snow in the U.K.!) that you got slammed. I'm sorry that kept your friend from coming. The pictures are beautiful.

Lisa said...

That STINKS!!! I hope you & your best friend can reschedule very, very soon! BRING ON SPRING!

Mary said...

I love that pudgey litle baby hand :)

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

I'm sadcakes that your bff wasn't able to make it in, but pretty freakin' happy that we didn't anywhere near that much snow. I will now stop my whining about the two inches we did get.

Stephanie said...

I am sooooo jealous of snow! I know you must get it tired of it if it's a bad winter, but down here in the south, we only got a light dusting that was gone by noon. Snow is the most beautiful function of nature to me....it's so peaceful and quiet. I would give anything to just live up there for a winter, if nothing else to get sick of it so I wouldn't want it so bad here! ;oD

Katie said...

Sorry to hear about your plans, hopefully y'all will be able to get together soon!

John-Michael said...

I am so genuinely sorry that your much-anticipated plans were kaboshed.

I have NEVER seem such snow photos! This is something that I will (in all likelihood) never experience first-hand. I just can't quite get my comprehension wrapped around such a phenomenon. So awe-inspiring.

MamaWise said...

I feel your pain. We finally measured it last night, and we had a total of 20 inches, and the snow drift on my front patio was 40 inches. Crazy! Great pictures - it's so pretty to look at.

Maria said...

We got the dump, too! The kids had a blast in it. I actually enjoyed it too! BTW, we have plow service and ours cost 190. 300?

suchsimplepleasures said...

oh my god!!! look at all that snow...that michigan didn't get!!! sucks for you!! i'm so sorry, though, that you're friend wasn't able to come and hang out with you...you must have been soooo disappointed! i hope she gets to come in again, soon...like, after winter!!
but...yay!! michigan didn't get this one!!
this was the first year that we didn't pay for a plowing service, too!! because, every other year...we didn't need the service. figures! that's why, next year...we're handing our guy triple the amount he asks...just to insure that fact that we get NO snow!!
xoxo

Shirley said...

I'm so sorry you didn't get your 'girlfriend fix'. I know how important those are. Looks like the little ones enjoyed the snow.

How much longer will you have snow?

Crystal said...

Oh my goodness OHmommy, now that is a snow storm. While I am desperate for it to be Spring (I mean we sprang forward on the clock and that got me excited) I cannot argue that it would only be fair after all that snow that you should get some warm 70 weather soon. Until then bundle up and make some snow angels with your little OHkiddies.
I love these pictures. Post some more if you go out and play today.

Ashlee said...

I'm glad I don't live in Ohio. :0)

Sorry to hear your weekend was a bust. Hope it gets better!

Kathryn said...

Oh no!!! That is the worst timing ever! I'm so sorry!

krissy said...

Uggg! You totally got dumped on!

I've been there before...big plans that I have been planning for months and then old man winter ruins it. Very depressing.

Can you rescheudule with your friend?????

Think Spring!!!

Melissa said...

Slap my a$$ and call me Susie. I promise not to complain about all the snow we've gotten so far this year. You guys have us beat hands down.

Be sure not to hurt yourself shoveling.

LceeL said...

That's really tough about your friend. Just seems that things happen like that, sometimes. You can tell all of Ohio that the storm was YOUR FAULT. Actually, I don't know how you guys got hit so bad and it missed us in Illinois.

amanda said...

oh no friend :( so sorry to hear about the lack of weekend bff time! the good news is that u got some great pics!!

Stephanie said...

I cannot even imagine what it is like to live with that much snow. That's insane! The pictures say it all! Lord...

Tara R. said...

AWWW... that sucks! The snow is to the kids' knees! WOW! I guess I don't have it so bad living in a tourist town, sand is much better than snow.

Amy said...

WOW!! All that snow is just insane! Sorry your friend didn't get to come in, that really stinks!

Karen MEG said...

Oh shoot, about the girls' night out being gone! Well, there will be another, hopefully sooner rather than later. Better safe really. This snow blows.

I was just saying that we really got our money's worth with our plow service this year, just in the last week alone. Just when I was thinking it was a stinking waste of money!

April said...

LOVE that last pic with the doggie in the snow. We always had to dig little paths for our dachsunds. It was too cute!

Lizzy in the Burbs said...

I'm so sorry that your girls weekend was ruined, that's a bummer! Those are incredible pictures, just love the one of your babies chubby little hand on the window, so cute!!

Lizzy

Kelly said...

Yikes! That just sucks all around. Hope your friend can get try again, soon.

Motherhood for Dummies said...

LunaNik said...

Oh my that is A LOT of snow.

I'm sorry you didn't get to hang with your girl. I'm sure you'll get to plan another "play date" soon enough.

P.S.

That is A LOT of snow. Heh.

The Schneider's said...

Oh no! I just finished reading the post where your friend didn't make it for her visit! Sorry I'm a little behind! Hopefully she will be able to come back for another visit soon and you can take a rain check on the girl's night out! The pictures are great though! As Jonah would say "That's a lot of snowman (aka snow)!" :)

The MomBabe said...

ohmygosh! Chubby baby hands! Love them. love ♥ LOVE

david mcmahon said...

Lousy timing, but you could always come and live in sunny Melbourne!

renatamic said...

NATR - i cannot reschedule for w/e of 4/19, we have a wedding.

Lisa said...

Bummer...I grew up in Ohio's snow belt--I hate snow if it's not Christmas. My sister is still there and has been stuck in her house for days.
Sending Texas sunshine your way :)

greyst said...

Well, it makes for good pictures at least! :P

Otherwise - sorry it still cold! I'm waiting for Spring too!!

chichimama said...

Oy. May we miss the big snow storm this year. But looks like the kiddos had fun at least...so sorry your friend couldn't make it in...

Amy said...

Jane the Sane said...

Sue said...

Suck Ass! I hope it melts fast.

Kellan said...

I thought about you when I heard OH was getting all that snow - and you did - WOW!! That is a crazy amount of snow! So sorry your friend didn't make it in - bummer! Those are great pictures. Stay warm - I hope it doesn't snow too much more - see you soon. Kellan

Smart A$$ Mom said...

Jessica said...

YUCK! That totally stinks! Hope ya have a snow blower!

Rhea said...

That was a LOT of snow. We never get that amount of snow here in Texas. If we did, the whole gosh darn state would shut down. Seriously. Mass panic. Sheesh.
