Snowmageddon – 2011 . . .

In Uncategorized on February 3, 2011 at 12:47 am

Congratulations Kansas City on (thus far) surviving the wrath of Snowmageddon 2011. 

Do the Stockdales miss the snow?  Yes.  

I always loved snow while it was falling out of the sky and I was snuggly tucked into my nice warm house.  However, after it was done falling, school was cancelled, the happy calls of the little Stockdales begging to go play in the snow transformed into the whiny shreaks of being cold after an hour messing up the pristine flatness of the yard, it needed to be shoveled out of the driveway, and it eventually deteriorated into this grey/black wet slush that messed up the inside of the van, the inside of the garage, the laundry room, and turned the yard into a muddy mess that Big Government Stockdale would tear to pieces.  That was when I wished that someday I could live in a tropical paradise and have a maid and no yard and no snow and no cars and live in a shoebox.  Sometimes dreams do come true.

The following pictures were all taken on the same day.  See if you can guess which pictures were taken in Kansas City and which were taken in Singapore.

Have fun, stay warm, and keep digging!

  1. Now you are just rubbing it in! This is our 3rd snow day THIS WEEK and we have already had 2 days this year. I have never seen so much snow in KC. It is the “Blizzard of Oz!” Needless to say, my boys will be in school until Mid-July. Everyone loves it now, but will complain come June. Thanks for reminding us of your warm, tropical weather.
    I do love seeing your life in Singapore and keeping up with the kids.
    Take care of all of those Stockdales. 🙂

  2. Ila says “At least some peoples’ dreams come true.” Give the girls a hug from both of us. Love ,ya!
