Did you survive the Snowpocalypse?
Here in Chicago, we witnessed one of the biggest storms in our history. We had a record breaking 21 inches of snow in the city proper, which created massive snow drifts upwards of 6 feet in my neighborhood. Winds reached up to 70 miles per hour. Hundreds of people were stranded on Lake Shore Drive for upwards of 12 hours. With such a large amount of snow, it’s going to take a while to get back to some sort of normalcy.
So today is day 3 of being snowed in. The snow has stopped but it’s been bitter cold and our household has started to go stir crazy. I bundled up the Fruitaholic and took him outside to try to get some pictures but he was having none of it. He took me on a short walk down the block (I think he was headed towards the park?) and we collected some snow from our yard and brought it back to the warmth inside to make a snow day treat using only 2 ingredients. YUM!
