Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

 Thursday and Friday, November 14 - 15, 2014 we had a major snow storm park itself over the Boise Idaho area. 

All the schools in the area were closed including BSU. 
Even our trash service was delayed until road conditions improved.
A look outside my window on this snowy day. I love it when I can stay home and have the weekend to get the roads back in shape before I have to drive on them. 
Look at the height of the snow off the walks. Lots of snow, plus it was still snowing. 
 See how high the snow is at the snow tires? It took me quite a while to dig my car out and the driveway to the garage where my other car is. 
Boise Airport official total was 7.6 inches of snow. Wow! Most areas in Boise received 7 - 10 inches from this storm. It was a crazy snow day. It's beautiful, but soooo cold. It was 1 degree this morning and the high will only be 24 degrees today. Brrrrrrr
I saw this photo on KTVB (our local TV Station) and thought that was such a cute idea. Way to go girls! Do you want to build a snowman?
We also hosted a football game here. Bronco stadium was covered with a blanket of snow. It took a while for them to prepare Boise States Blue Turf for the game against San Deigo. 

Ok, I had to laugh when I found out it was San Diego that was coming to play in our cold snowy stadium. 

It took facility crews working throughout Friday to remove the snow from the field and stands at Albertsons Stadium.
I am sure it came as a shock to the Aztecs whose temperature in their home city of San Diego reached 70 degrees on Saturday. ha ha ha!

The expected temperature for Saturday's game at 8:15 pm kickoff was around 20 degrees, but the wind chill put that down even further. 

Poor San Diego!!! Brrrrrrrr

BSU Broncos' 38-29 were victorious over Sand Diego State!!
On this cold snowy weekend, I decided to make chili and taco soup. I used up the remaining kidney beans in my food storage. It's always a good feeling when I can replace food storage with new product because I am actually using it!

I was able to fill my freezer with 1 serving bags - my creative way to cook from scratch for 1 person.  I love meals in my freezer that I can pull out so I can eat healthy be frugal and not run to get fast food. 
It was an unusual Sunday too - our church had a pipe break, sending everyone out of the building and the fire department coming in. 
Glad it was only a broken pipe and everyone was safe!

Well, it's been quite a snow storm and weekend. Although the snow is beautiful, I always dread driving on it. But, it's back to work on Monday. Hopefully all the roadways will be back to normal and it will be an easy commute.

That is unreal. You actually had more snow than us! Amazing considering we are in the frozen tundra of outer darkness.

Hope the roads are good for you as you get ready to go into your busy season!
