12 inches of snow.
22 hours without power.
12 kids playing and eating Popsicles in the front yard.
1 lost white glove.
29.6 degrees--the max temp reached in my freezer before the power came back on.
55 degrees--the average temp in the house for most of the day.
8 potatoes baked on the hot stones of the hearth, pioneer style, for dinner.
27 soggy mittens or gloves to wash.
Happy Jill in the snow.
Emma, Jill, and Pilot.
Closeup of Jane as she zips past me on the sled.
Miriam sledding--pure joy for our little wild child.
