Snow Day

Your eyes aren't deceiving you. No trick photography was used. The snow against our dining room doors is that high. There was once a deck beyond that door. You can see the remains of a railing. We're almost at waist high snow here, people!! It snowed a good foot last night and there expecting the same tonight. I was awoken to the sound of my phone going off with my manager telling me not to come in. I actually couldn't anyway. Somewhere in the driveway that is now M.I.A my car is parked. Buried alive. Poor little guy. Forgive me if I don't get out and get some outfit posts for a little bit. We have to dig our way out and it may take me awhile! (By the way, in true snow day fashion I am still in my pajamas. Hence the camera-shy-ness.) 

So I leave you with a little video. I realize I am not winning an academy award for this one but it was a fun little experiment. When I buy a new camera (hopefully soon) I will try to make some decent videos. These are clips from our drive to Canmore. After about 4 hours you get a little bored in the car. At the very least you can listen to a good song if you watch it...

Song Cred:
Nico - These Days


  1. WOW crazy snow! i can't remember what this was like! looks...bothersome...haha.

    i love your video! i really want to make one. i'm not quite sure how though...hrmm

    happy snow day to you!

  2. Oh my gosh, Shy, you are even cuter in 'real' video-action life than in your photos, which I didn't know was possible! Shootdang, you have such a pretty smile! And I just love this video, I think it is SUPER RAD! The song is great (why can't I think of whatever film I have heard it in recently? Grrr...). Don't ya hate when you're driving along and those big ol trucks come out of nowhere and fly by at like 85 mph? Idiots... hurrying places.

    P.S. Just curious: what are your speed limits in Canada? Sorry if that's a stupid question :)

    My husband said, "Why can't we get snow like that??" when I showed him the photo. He starts school tomorrow and I think he's nervous, wanting a snow day already, bless his heart!

  3. that is A LOT of snow!!!! :P
    i loved the video! i want to live where you are!! SO beautiful!

  4. Aww, that was SO MUCH FUN!! Definitely great song, very cute vid. You've inspired me, I wish I knew how to draw monkeyfaces for real so I could animate one :)

  5. Cute, cute cute. That was very artsy - not that that should surprise me, you clearly have an artistic eye that shows in all your photos.
    Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

  6. oh my goodness that is a ton of snow!! most of ours melted, thank god i was so tired of shovelling!! and that is a super cute video i love that song :)

  7. I seriously can't believe it snowed that much! It only started snowing here, and I sooo hope we don't get as much as you did. eeep!!

    I love your video. It makes me want to drive out to the mountains right now. :)

  8. It's snowed sooo much!! Its ridiculous out! Im not allowed to walk outside in case I fall anyways so I stuck at home haha.

    I love that video you made! Its such a lovely drive through the mountains, so pretty. Hopefully you can shovel your way out soon!!

  9. Omg, I'm reading this from bed, and now I'm too scared to go look out the window! Stupid snow! I guess no outdoor shoots for me either... brrrr! Cute video btw-- I was thinking about getting into that as well... you've inspired me! xx


  10. wooooow so much snow! It snowed a crazy amount over here too, but it has all melted down over the last two weeks. I love snow but I'm glad it's gone :D I hate the melting part especially, so icky and slippery.

  11. awww! That video made me smile so much! It's been almost a year since I was last on that lovely stretch of highway... i miss it! And how cute are you?? You should definitely post more videos!

    That's crazy about the snow... please tell me it's not on it's way here! I don't know if I can handle anymore snow this year! xx

  12. Oh my goodness the snow is awful! (I also live in Edmonton). It must just be terrible living outside of the city right now... I'm counting my blessings that I haven't gotten stuck, yet. But apparently its supposed to keep snowing until Friday, so we'll see!

  14. That is some crazy snow! I hope you didn't beat Russia with the temperature like you did last year. That would be quite the trip.

    I'm glad you did a video and I hope you do more! It was fun to see your world for a little bit.

  15. xo!


  16. wow! my work would still make me come in!

    Enter my £50 giveaway!

  17. Love the video Shy, and also the fact you chose a Nico song :) Sally x

  18. woh. It rained all day here, but it's in the 70s. I feel like living in FL gives me no concept of seasons. Enjoy your snow day.

  19. holy, wow...the snow!!!

  20. Wow, that is an insane amount of snow! at least you didn't have to go to work, I wouldn't have minded all the chaos it caused here if we didn't have to go to work either :p xx


Thank You :D
