Field of hearts and the groundhog day blizzard of 2011

Today is groundhog day, which marks 7 years since the groundhog day blizzard of 2011. The winter of 2010-2011 was a very memorable winter for me. Christmas of 2010 was a white Christmas for my area and getting snow that chrismas eve made for the perfect sight to wake up to on a christmas morning. Later that winter came the groundhog day blizzard of 2011, which that and our crazy lake effect snow in January on 2014 was the craziest snow that I have seen in my area. A few days before the storm, I looked up the weather and I was surprised when I saw that we were supposed to get 2 feet of snow. On the evening of February 1st 2011, it started snowing. This storm was strong enough for there to be a blizzard warning, which dosent happen very often in my area. It snowed like crazy until after I went to bed that night. The next day was groundhog day and when I got un it wasn’t snowing any more, but there was a lot of snow on the ground. My front porch and flowerbed next to it were buried in a drift of snow. The snow was not over yet. Not long after coming outside and taking pictures of the snow, a band of very heavy lake effect snow came through. The snow was so heavy that I could barley see anything. We got an about additional 6 inches of snow in a very short time. After that the snow was over. I was in high school at the time and it snowed so much that my school was canceled for 3 days. That is very unusual. As you already know it was getting close to valentines day. When we have a good amount of snow on the ground on or near valentines day I like to make snow hearts by walking in the snow in a field by my house. The 2 feet of snow on the ground made for a perfect time to do that. After making the hearts I took pictures of them. My field of hearts picture that I have for the thumbnail picture for this article is one of the pictures I took after making my snow hearts in the snow from the crazy snowstorm. Unfortunately after the 3 fun days of off school, we had to make up those days since despite how crazy the storm was, it wasn’t crazy enough for us to be under a state of emergency. Lucky for me I am one who likes snow, so it was exciting for me to get all of this snow. That is my experience with the groundhog day blizzard of 2011.
