still can’t park in our neighborhood, but thanks to some incredible neighborly effort, we’ve managed to dig snow tunnels on the sidewalk so people can at least get outside. our little mochi loves running through them!

we’ve lived in a snow globe for the last five days. we’re teetering on a foot of snow, with six to eight more inches coming in the morning. it’s 50 degrees below freezing. “brrrr” doesn’t even begin to cover it.
while normally, i wouldn’t get near the door at a time like this — our little mochi loves it!
