This weekend, Blizzard Jonas came into town. In the past couple years that we’ve been here, the most I’ve seen is about 8 inches of snow, which is a lot for this Cali native. In TWO DAYS, we had almost 30 inches of snow – it was crazy! Some cars in my neighborhood were buried in snow, and by that, I mean you could only see the roof of the car. Thank goodness for midshipmen from the Naval Academy, who as a good deed shoveled snow in neighborhoods around us.
We spent the weekend indoors, hosting a big lunch and snowplay with the midshipmen that are close to our family, since we were all stuck inside anyways. The mayor of our town issued a warning that no one was to drive, because the winds and snow were CRAZY. Work also got called off yesterday to clear the roads. It was basically a good time to clear the rest of the food from my fridge and pantry, because I wasn’t about to drive on uncleared streets. A few sad-looking apples hanging out in the fridge, combined with the ever-present bag of frozen wild blueberries in the freezer, made an awesome dessert. This would be perfect with some coconut vanilla ice cream, too!
