Things to do on a Snowed in Weekend! 2013 Boston Blizzard Update

As anyone with a sore back from shoveling knows, we got some snow this weekend.  30 inches or more.  Clearly, a 20 miler our in the trails or roads was out of the question.  20 miles on a treadmill?  No thanks, I love running but I rather enjoy the outside world on my days off.  Here’s some things we did this weekend!

1. Snowshoeing! The woods are beautiful, peaceful and calm.  I may not be able to run through them, but taking a walk was beautiful.  We got to watch the sunset a bit too.

Only lesson: Don’t wear jeggings on a snowshoe walk.  I kicked a lot of snow as I walked and by the end of it I’m pretty sure the back of my legs were frozen solid.

2. Build a snowman!  The snow we got was dry and heavy and it took a while to build, but where there’s a will there’s a way for my roommate!

3. Take your cat out for multiple walks in the snow.

4. Bake your little heart out.   Hey, shoveling burns a lot of calories!  Even if it’s other people who are doing it.  I can eat for them too.  Plus it counts as healthy if you add protein to it!

5. Homemade pizza!  I used this recipe only with more toppings.  Frozen broccoli cauliflower mix, fresh green peppers, onions & sausage!

Pizza looked a lot more cooked after we actually you know baked it but Tony tore into it before I got to take another pretty picture!

Did you get lots of snow this weekend?  

What did you do?  We had a state ban on driving on Friday-Saturday and got to spend a lot of time close to home which was nice.

  1. Yep, Nemo wasn’t joking around in Boston. We had SO much shoveling to do on Saturday even though my boyfriend and his uncle had already shoveled twice on Friday in an attempt to stay ahead of the snowfall.

    I had to do 8 miles on the treadmill yesterday, but I agree that 20 would have just been too much. Otherwise I just lazed around a bit. I needed it.

  2. I loved that you went snowshoeing. That is my new favorite activity. 🙂

    It has been a couple of years since we have had huge snowstorm. The last one shut down the city. It was crazy. We had 120 inches of snow over the course of a month. Being from Oregon I totally freaked out. I can handle a lot of rain, but not a lot of snow.

    1. our were plowed consistently through out the night but I think a lot of side roads are still covered! I want the snow to melt already so I can have clear trails again =)

  3. LOL I love your cat in a sweater – so cute!

    Snowshoeing is one of my favorite things to do in the winter, too. It’s a great way to get a workout and see the wonderful winter scenery!

  4. As crazy as it sounds that I was jealous of everyone home in Boston during the blizzard when I was in sunny South America, it’s true! I miss all the big storms and they always remind me of growing up in New England. Love the snowman!
