Winter Weather in Maryland

If you live in the Mid-Atlantic you know that snow isn’t a common phenomenon here. If you live in Boston, you’re wishing it wasn’t common there either. For the rest of you who aren’t experiencing these little problems, you can live vicariously through us. Snow is so beautiful until you’re housebound by it. Here are a few pictures from the other day full of snow-shoveling, which, by the way, burns 400-600 calories an hour! This is my new winter workout.

The above picture is a shot of the street I live on. Yes, it’s one way. I live in the middle of a little forest and we have to plow it ourselves. The county government doesn’t legally have to do it for us. Luckily, my neighbor has a four wheeler with a snow plow on the front of it, God bless him!

Don’t I look great with a shovel? I’m trying to break up the slush/ice so that it doesn’t freeze overnight creating a mess to drive on. P.S. A great snow-shoveling outfit is always necessary. I’m wearing LL Bean insulated snow boots, New York & Company leggings (they’re really thick), Aeropastle puffer vest (found it for $10 last year), a Forever 21 sweatshirt, and J Crew head warmer.

This is my driveway people. The only way we’re getting up or down it is if we shovel it by hand. My little red Toyota is at the bottom. I can honestly say that I didn’t know what “back-breaking” work was until my dad decided I was old enough to shovel snow like an adult. I also didn’t know that a heating pad works miracles! In all honesty though, being outside and breathing in the fresh air is so good for your mental and physical health.

I can’t complain about where I live. It’s private, quiet, and really beautiful. As a kid, I could ride my bike, play outside, and just have fun without having to worry about too much. I grew up in the house I still live in and I’m blessed to have all my memories stored in one place.

  1. Wow! What a beautiful place to live in.

    P.S. I live in India. And in the tropical part of the country, not up north, where one can still see some snow. Sigh.

  2. I live in Ottawa, Canada. We have much less snow this year than usual, but it is HELLA cold. Today was -32C with the windchill (-25F). It has been like this for weeks. I am praying for summer to come quickly! LOL! The dogs are soooo cute, btw! They look so happy in the snow!

    I live in NY and the cold is brutal right now! 😞 I do agree that shoveling is the best winter workout!
