Preparing for the coming Snowmaggedon

What does your husband do the night before a snow storm? I’ll show you what mine does:

09snowman1

09snowman5

09snowman6

09snowman7

Yeah.  It’s a Dalek.  And just because it wasn’t nerdy enough the way it was…

09snowman8

He added lights.

Tomorrow it will probably be covered in a foot of new snow.  I just hope we don’t need our plunger or our whisk anytime soon…

P.S. There is a history of crazy things showing up on our lawn when it snows…

    1. Heh. Yeah. We’re kinda nerdy that way. And so many other ways, as long as we’re being honest 😀

  11. SO awesome! Love the nerdiness!

  12. That’s awesome. 🙂

    The only problem is, you can actually see the ground in front of your house. This means you obviously don’t have enough snow. Feel free to come down and take some of ours, because we’re in the process of getting another foot or so on top of the two that got dumped on us last weekend.

    1. Yeah, we lucked-out with the last two storms, but tomorrow it’s going to hit us bigger. It’s already coming down out there, and school has already been canceled.

      You must be really tired of the snow by now!

  14. Bahahahaha! You’ve seen the whole Flickr group dedicated to Dalek birthday cakes, I assume.

    1. No, but thank you for that! There’s a soon-to-be 10-year-old in this house who would probably love a Dalek cake. Too bad my cake-making skills are not up to Neil’s snow-sculpting skills.

  15. Love it.

    1. Me too, but I really liked David Tennant. He’s going to be a hard act to follow.

      1. yes – Tennant was amazing – but When they switches from Eccleston to Tennant I thought the same thing. Well, I loved Tennant more – he was sooo cute and funny. We’ll see – new season will start soon…

    I hurt myself laughing at that one.

  59. I’m browsing through your blog, checking out old posts, and just have to say the Dalek is about the coolest thing I’ve ever seen made out of snow in my entire life. Ever. Your husband gets serious kudos in my book!! I am amazed and yes, geeking out a little (and semi-jealous that I didn’t think of it first!)

    1. Heh. Yes, well, it’s safe to say that there’s rarely a dull moment around here, geeking-out-wise 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it!
