Let it Snow: Duggar Style (Part 1)

 (Winters in Northwest Arkansas are moderate, so you can imagine the Duggars' surprise when they woke up to two feet of snow last February. Yes, you read that right. Not two centimeters or two inches, but a whopping two feet of fluffy, white snow.

"We normally only get about, at the most, like two or three inches," Jim Bob Duggar told us during our live interview the following day.

In the spirit of the season, we thought it would be fun to share pictures from their snow day. Come back tomorrow for the Duggars' Snow Ice Cream recipe!

We get snow most years, but it rarely settles. October 2010 was the last bad lot of snow.

We generally have TONS of snow. At least 2 feet. But this year we only have 1 foot. Although before Thanksgiving we got 2 feet.

Not very common where I live now. But where I grew up it was very common to get snow in the winter.

It varies, some years we get a huge amount and some years almost none. So far this year is in the almost none category.

Last year we had about six feet, about twelve for the whole year. Snow in Wyoming is very common. I'm ready for spring.

we don't get very much. I wish we would get more. This year (2012) We have only gotten like a centimeter. :( MAYBE an inch. But that is a BIG MAYBE.

In Oregon we never ever get any snow

Snow rarely/never occurs where I live (southeastern US). If it does occur, it will probably be snow flurries. ;)

Here in New Brunswick Canada we have a lot of snow.Last year the snow was 6 feet high.

I live in BC Canada and we seem to get snow every year but it usually doesn't last long. The amount of snow in our area can vary from one postal code to the next! We had about 7-8" at our place 10 days ago which lasted only 5 days. Lots of rain followed and washed it away. I love to look at the snow on the trees, rooftops and front lawns but I wish it wouldn't snow on the roads!
Cheers!

Lily and Ellie, are some of the older girls wearing trousers in these pics? Joy-Anna and Jill look like they are. It's very unusual.

Hi Amy-Louise T,

The girls are wearing snow pants, and Jill is wearing her uniform from the volunteer fire department.

How funny. We were all in t-shirts and shorts y'day.
Snow is pretty until it starts melting. Then its' just a big muddy mess.

I saw a show where they specifically made skirts to wear at the volunteer fire department in deference to wearing pants. Did they change their minds and decide to wear pants instead?

stellabella said...

Well here in Miami it never snows and I am really happy about that!!

Lily and Ellie said...

Hi Anonymous (at 1:08 AM),

The skirts, made with help from Anna in the episode "Duggars on Fire," are for the formal, EMT side of the volunteer fire department. When out on the job, and especially when fighting fires, Jana and Jill wear a traditional firefighter's uniform.

I live in Ludington, MI .... Normally we get alot of snow. This year has been mild. We are waiting on the ice storm that is suppose to hit. Wish we could send more of our snow there. At least its not been as bitter as it has been.

My family used to live in Canada, so almost every year we got atleast a foot and a half, almost two feet sometimes. We live in New York now, so when we get snow, its about an inch or two.
