… let me tell you, it was a day (and a half). Blizzard 2016 1These photos (↑) we’re taken approximately (it’s not an exact science!) 24-hours apart – four hours and 28-hours into the blizzard! Lucky for you, I documented the hours in between, because what else was I going to do?!

While she’s generally not a fan of the snow, it turns out that when it’s more than double her size, she’s really not excited about it.
