The Aftermath

Just a few hours after taking the pics in the previous post, this is what the yard looked like.... wet but much more normal.  Trees are standing up straight rather than bent in half.

This is what the backyard looked like just a few weeks ago... again.

Eric thought it would be funny to make a lady snowman (snowlady?) complete with boobs.  Yeah, if you look close you can see her in that pic above.  (FYI, you can click on any pic to make it larger.) Boys....!

The aftermath of the storms is not only evident in our yard, it is also evident inside.
Trains and train tracks in the entryway.
More trains, cars, tools, tractors, an RV and ride-ons all in the living room.

Apparently something needed to be fixed in the boy's closet.  Maybe the train table.  Not sure why they couldn't keep the trains in their room on the train table instead of bringing them all out to the entry and living room.
I stepped outside a bit ago to take the updated pictures and it almost seems like it is raining.  The snow is constantly falling out of the trees (as snow and water) sounding like rain.  It is almost dangerous to stand under the trees as some is falling out as ice in huge chunks. Branches are swaying around and bouncing around as it falls.  It is a bit eerie.  The boys really want to get out and play in the snow again before it melts, but they would be soaking wet if they went out right now. 
I have been fighting a headache all day, so I am going to take a nap while the boys (all 3!!!) are asleep. :)
