Hello, December.

Today was December 1st. How crazy is that? It must have kept snowing overnight because we woke up to winter wonderland…

And a snowy good morning from Northside…

Brrr. I bought three Lego City Advent Calendars a while back. I bought on one for me and one for our niece and one for our nephew out in Boston. I forgot that they were still sitting on the sofa in our studio, and just mailed them out the day after Thanksgiving. Because December really snuck up on me. Violette and Edgerton… your Lego Advent Calendars are on their way. They’ll be there just as soon as USPS finally decides to deliver them. I paid to have them delivered today. But the tracking number says they are still in Cincinnati somehow.

Anyway, I finally got the start my Lego City Advent Calendar today…

And here is Lego City Advent Calendar day one…

A Lego City Advent Calendar. How cool is that? I think Lego anything is pretty dang awesome.

I started working this morning. I had just finished a hour long meeting and a little after 10am all of a sudden, our power went out….

You don’t really realize how much of your work depends on power until you don’t have it. Obviously, there wasn’t any internet. And my work MacBook is a bit older and the battery life isn’t super. So by 11:30am, I was pretty much staring out the window, waiting for the power to come back on.

The energy company’s website said it wouldn’t be back on before 1:30pm. Eventually, we ventured out to go out to pick up something for lunch and decided on Wendy’s…

We got home and started eating our Wendy’s and the power came back on a little before 2pm…

Thank goodness for electricity!

It looks like people got some good sledding in on the hill at the end of our street…

We should have gone sledding while we were waiting for power to come back on.

Good evening from Northside…

We ate leftover Wendy’s chicken nuggets for dinner. And later, we watched Holidate on Netflix. It was super cute. It’s still hard to believe it’s December 1st.

Today was also my 900th Timehop in a row…

And this guy was in my Timehop today…

Pretty fitting for December 1st. It is the season. It was a pretty good day, even without power. 😀🌄❄️🍔📺❤️

The first snow.

It was another Monday. And Mondays usually mean that it’s going to be another grey and rainy morning in Northside…

And it was cold outside too.

You can’t really tell from these photos but this morning it was raining hard enough that the dogs didn’t even want to go outside on their walk. We had to pretty much drag them out of the house and down to the end of the street so they would potty.

Mondays are tough. I feel like they are the busiest days of the week. When I look back at my photos to do a blog post for almost any Monday, there are never any photos from during the day. There are photos from our morning dog walk and then it jumps straight to photos from the evening dog walk.

And today was no different. This afternoon it started snowing. Our very first snow of the season. The snow was starting to accumulate on top of the cars on our street…

It started really snowing on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

There was more snow on the Jetta when we got back from going around the block…

But the snow wasn’t starting to accumulate on the grass yet…

For dinner tonight, Genifer made turkey meatloaf…

She also made instant mashed potatoes and I finished the last of the Thanksgiving mac&cheese…

And it was delicious. We ate the entire meatloaf. It’s kind of a bummer because I was looking forward to a meatloaf sammich for lunch tomorrow.

When we got upstairs, I was trying to work on our blog but Flickr was having a case of the Mondays as well…

8 Tonight, we watched Xavier squeak out a win against Eastern Kentucky. Then we fell asleep. We always end up falling asleep pretty early on Mondays. 😀🌄🌧️❄️🏀❤️

Four years ago.

Four years ago, we ventured out to check out Northside on one of the snowiest days of the year. (Remember when we used to get snow?) And we visited Northside Yacht Club and Urban Artifact for the first time…

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😀🦕❤️

A cold & snowy day.

It was a cold and snowy day in Cincinnati. We were supposed to get 2-4 inches of snow. That didn’t quite happen, but we still got a pretty nice dusting of the cold, white stuff…

Walking to catch the bus was pretty chilly…

So was walking from the bus stop downtown to work…

I could have sat in my office and just watched it snow all day long

Brr. 🙂

Snowing in Northside.

It was snowing this evening in Northside. We were supposed to get a snow squall. But this is what we got instead as seen from our bedroom window…

🙂

Snopacalypse.

It figures that the one “big” snow storm of the winter so far fell on Valentine’s Day and we’re caught out wandering around Northside. It was the first real accumulation of the winter. But it still really wasn’t that much snow at all. After it was all said and done, we might got a couple of inches. Still, it was pretty darn fun getting to drive in the snow. It’s something that I rarely get the opportunity to do anymore. Cincinnati definitely doesn’t get anywhere near as much snow as where I grew up in Michigan. Up there, they would’ve hardly batted an eye at this small amount of snow…

We made it home from the Northside safe and sound. No problems.

And then we took Oscar out for a walk in the white stuff…

I’m glad we both have President’s Day off tomorrow. It’s messy out there. 🙂

Winter wonderland.

It was really snowy in downtown Cincinnati this afternoon…

I don’t think I’ve ever seen snowflakes that big. I looked like someone was standing above my window emptying out a gigantic bag of feathers.  I could have just sat there all day and just watched it snow.

So here’s your moment of Zen for the day…

But then it was done…

Downtown Cincinnati is always so pretty when it’s snowing. Heck, Downtown Cincinnati is always pretty to me. 🙂

#snOMG.

We got some more snow overnight. And once again, downtown Cincinnati was transformed into a winter wonderland for the morning commute…

And I grabbed a couple of quick videos of it snowing when I got to work.
Click on the photos below to see the videos…

Brrrrr.  And… I was the third person into the office this morning.
Because I didn’t have to mess with driving in this mess. 🙂

Winter wonderland.

The temperatures dropped overnight. And we got our first real snow of the winter. When we woke up this morning, it was raining but that quickly turned to snow. And it was really coming down out there

When Oscar and I went on our morning walk, downtown was a winter wonderland…

Brrrr. Baby, it’s cold outside. 🙂
