Snowmageddon: 2014 Edition

The eastern part of the United States got pummeled with snow a few days ago. Here, at our home in North Carolina, we received 12 inches.

So, as most of you probably already know, the Eastern part of the country got hammered a few days by the wrath of Mother Nature – this time in snow form. Being from North Carolina, we don’t often see snow falls of blizzard proportions, at least not in the part of North Carolina that I am from, but this week we did.

2014 Snow Pictures From North Carolina

The eastern part of the United States got pummeled with snow a few days ago. Here, at our home in North Carolina, we received 12 inches.

View from inside our house, out at the snow, before it was finished.

Amber was out of school over half of the week and my husband’s job was even shut down for two days. I have to admit that I was looking forward to the snow. I hadn’t seen any that had really amounted to much in years. And I was looking forward to getting trapped at the house with my family for a few days.

Oh where, oh where, did our grill go?

We ate snow cream. I don’t think my husband had ever eaten it but I have many times in my life. Amber also went out in the snow for a bit. Our neighbors built a snow family, but it got so warm on Friday {the day after they built them} that they were almost gone by the afternoon.

Nice patio set.

My husband went back to work on Friday, but Amber was still out of school. I assume that she will be back to school tomorrow but this is a rural area, so we shall see. Some of the people in this area live way out in the boonies and it’s doubtful their roads have been scraped.

By the time it was all over, we had at least 12 inches of snow.

In all we got at least 12 inches of snow. We might have gotten more, but we didn’t measure again.

Did You Get Any Snow This Week? If So, How Much Did You Get?

  7. My goodness … you did get hammered! Some wild winter we are having.

  8. Yeah, that’s about what we got here, too. It’s not bad, though. A couple of years ago we had over 2 feet on the ground at once.

  9. WOW! That’s a lot of snow. I had forgotten how pretty is it, from afar. It looks COLD to me! I’m glad you enjoyed your days with the family and that things will be back to normal soon.

  10. LOL. Just today, I shared a photo of the table on our deck on Facebook. My caption was that with some coloring, it would look just like a Hostess Sno Ball. You know what? Yours does too. Too funny! (Or is it just me that thinks that?)

      Hahaha! It really does. Take some food coloring to it and Voila! Maybe that is a good idea for the next snow storm. ;)

  11. We live in Georgia and we had 7 or 8 inches. I am so over snow!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      That’s a lot for you guys, right. :) I thought it was pretty, but I am glad it’s back to pretty much business as usual now.

  12. I’m in Maine and this is our normal. :) I feel for people down south who aren’t accustomed to this kind of deluge of the white stuff. It can be pretty, but I’m glad things are getting back to normal for you down there. :)

  13. That’s what Michigan has been looking like too. I love winter but this one has had too much snow and has been way too cold. I need spring! :)

  14. NO THANK YOU I Live In Florida & That’sThe Reason I Did NO SNOW Hope You Guys Weathered It O.K!?!

  15. I’m with ya, girl. We’re buried here, too. The kids are BANANAS.

  16. It’s all fluffy and pretty! But that is a lotta snow!! Hope ya are warm and safe.

  17. Wowza, 12 inches of snow, look at all that!!! We got our own “Snowmaggedon” last week, but being in Oregon it was much less than this.

  18. Oh my goodness, you got A LOT! I am floored by the amount of snow this country is getting this winter!

  19. oh my that is a lot of snow, wish you could send some of it down here to Florida, my kids could love that!

  20. Love all the snow pictures– send some my way. Seriously :)

  21. Beautiful photos! I love the ruler showing how much snow fell, awesome!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Thanks! My daughter took that. We had a hard time believing that we actually had that much snow, so we had to have pictures to “prove” it, lol.

  22. Ugh, I’m so sick and tired of this snow!! I’m from Chicago and it’s been a ROUGH winter!

  23. Wow thats a lot of snow! This makes me super happy I live in Texas. I could not handle the snow at all!

  24. OMGosh that’s crazy! For an area not used to snow, I bet it’s blowing everyone away. It looks gorgeous!

  25. That is what my house looks like, but we are not in NC. When we lived down there I could only dream of snow.
