Some of these top blog posts are full of snow!

We were supposed to have a snow storm here at our house today, but whenever I looked outside of my window this morning, I was able to see a lot of grass near our house.  We didn’t get the snow storm that we were supposed to get today, but we did get some snow today.

Today, I’d like to make it the theme of this blog post by telling you about some of my top snow-related blog posts ever.

Since we didn’t get a lot of snow today, I just figured that I would let you guys some of my top snow-related blog posts from the past 2 1/2 years.  Most of them are about the snow-covered mountains that we had in our backyard two years ago.

Revisiting Joseph’s Best Blog Posts Of 2015: Our little snow covered mountains

Back in February, I wrote a blog post entitled “Our little snow covered mountains.”  In it, I talked about the two snow-covered mountains that we had in our backyard.  I really enjoyed looking at them last Winter.  Will we see any snow-covered mountains in our backyard this Winter?  Maybe.

I hope everybody has a great New Year!  I will be writing my next blog post in 2016.

Revisiting my past blog posts (Our little snow-covered mountains)

This week, I will be away with some of my relatives … and I will not be able to write some new blog posts for you guys. So, for the next few days, I’m going to “revisit” some of my top blog posts that I have written down since I started writing these blog posts back in August of 2014.

Today, I’m going to “revisit” a blog post that I wrote back on February 12, 2015. It’s called “Our little snow-covered mountains.” It was seen by various people 19 times since I wrote it more than three months ago.

Here’s a link to that blog post now …

I’ve decided to show you our third snow-covered mountain after all!

Here's our third snow-covered mountain.  It's right underneath our deck.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! A few days ago, I said in a previous blog post that I also had a third snow-covered mountain in our backyard. At first, I didn’t want to show it to you guys, but today, I changed my mind … and I’ve decided to show it to you after all. It’s right under our deck. It might be gone in just a few days … and hopefully our backyard will be 100% snow-free. Not even the 70-degree temperatures that we had yesterday could melt that snow-covered mountain away.

Our backyard is now snow-free!



Before I went to work this morning, I took a picture of our two snow-covered mountains. They don’t really look like mountains anymore. In fact, most of our property is now free of snow. After I came home from work this afternoon, I took a picture of our backyard … and in it, you can see our snow-free backyard. I’d like to show you a picture of our snow-free backyard now.


Sadly, we have to say good-bye to our snow-covered mountains, but on a happier note, we get to see our grass again for the first time in many weeks! Spring will officially come to National Hill on Friday!

There was a THIRD snow-covered mountain in our backyard, too?!?

One day, as I was walking outside in my backyard, I noticed that we actually had a third snow-covered mountain in our backyard … and it was underneath our deck. I hadn’t seen the snow-covered mountain before until I actually got to see it outside for myself for the first time earlier this week. I’ve decided not to take a picture of that little “mountain” because I think that I have talked about our snow-covered mountains enough times already. I promise you that this will be the last time that I talk about our snow-covered mountains … for a while.

A shovel ruined my snow-covered mountains!



Both of my snow-covered mountains got ruined by a shovel earlier this week. The mountains are still in our backyard today, but they won’t be there much longer. As the temperatures are expected to climb up into the 50s sometime next week, our little snow-covered mountains will probably be gone before next week comes to an end.

Have a great day … and don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead by one hour before you go to sleep tonight.

Let me ask you a question about our snow-covered mountains today!


In recent months, several of my blog posts have been about my two snow-covered mountains, which are still in my backyard. Spring doesn’t officially start for two more weeks, but the temperatures will thankfully begin to go up next week … and gradually, both of my snow-covered mountains will be gone. I’m going to ask you a question about it today. Just answer the poll question, which is located right below this blog post.

Not even 40-degree temperatures could melt our snow-covered mountains away!


I didn’t go outside last evening, but according to my smartphone, the temperature outside was around 45 degrees or so … and I looked at that temperature at around 7:00 or so last evening. As I was walking out to my backyard this morning, I noticed that our snow-covered mountains were still there … and they really didn’t melt away that much. They’re both still there … and actually, most of the snow that’s currently in our backyard is still there. Now, the temperatures are going to warm up big time next week, so I have a feeling that our snow-covered mountains will only be in our backyard for just a few more days. Now, as you know, our little “mountains” can’t stay in our backyard forever, but hopefully they can at least stay there until Spring arrives later this month.

Walking in my snow-covered backyard (part 2)

As promised, I walked in my snow-covered backyard this morning. By this time next week, most of the snow will probably be gone … and that also means that our little snow-covered mountains will slowly begin to melt.



Also … our swing set is surrounded by snow. It won’t be long before I start using it again.


Now, earlier today, I did something exciting … and it was something that I had never really done before in my life … until now. I’ll tell you about it in my next blog post.
