It’s Snow Fun Waiting For Spring To Arrive

The worst winter in the history of the Philadelphia area is upon us here in the North East.  After getting over 2 feet of snow over the weekend, major blizzard #2 of the month is bearing down upon us right now.  Another foot or more is expected and a State of Emergency in Delaware is in effect.  I took a few photos earlier in my backyard:snow.jpg

All that and it is still coming down.  The good news is, schools have been closed all week so I have not had to go to work :O)  The bad news is, we may never leave the house again if this keeps up.  In my boredom, I decided to invite a few of the Phillies over to my house for some snow fun before they take off for Spring Training.  Raul Ibanez went sledding and JA Happ tossed snowballs:

Chase Utley
was into the sledding idea while Cole Hamels and Shane Victorino had a snowball fight:

Hard to believe in all this snow that Spring is around the corner.  But still, truck day is tomorrow where the baseball supplies get sent down to Clearwater.  Well, that is if the snow does not stop them.  And on February 18th, pitchers and catchers will report; unless of course they prefer to keep playing in the snow here with me :O)

Spring Training starts in 8 days!!

Great pics of the winter wonderland in your backyard. I know the snow looks beautiful now, but I bet you can’t wait until it melts! Glad you’re safe and warm. This has been a crazy weather week for northeast fans.

Wowsers! Y’all DID get a ton, eh? We just got barely a foot but it’s all been plowed off already…I’m sure yours can’t melt soon enough. Let’s all remember this in August when we’re dying of heat stroke. LOL. Love the creative winter wonderland pics here, Jenn. As always, you impress.

I like your creativity a lot about the blizzard, something tells me that you can’t wait for the snow to end. I heard that your area was hit with more than one foot of snow. Yikes. Hopefully you are enjoying your time while it snows on.

Jenn,
And people in Boyertown, Pa wondered why I got in my car and drove out of sight back to Fl after a long Winter in the hills with white stuff still on the ground.
Seriously, I hope there is not any rolling brown/black out in your region that would make the weather more unbearable.
I got to tell you that region has gotten socked time after time this Winter and has gotten up off the canvas like Rocky in those 5 movies.
I applaud your stamina and want to let you know………..warmth and baseball is coming soon……..I promise.

Jenn, right about now I would really love to stow away in the equipment truck! I see we had the same idea yesterday of posting snow pictures (though mine don’t have any players in them). At least it’s sunny today!

All this snow in Philly is making me wish I was going to Clearwater for Spring Training! At least I hear that Comcast SportsNet is showing some Phillies programs every Sunday night so I can be there in sprit. Go Phils!
