IMG_4529So maybe “snowmageddon” wasn’t quite the storm everyone expected. That being said, who doesn’t love a free day to play in the snow, drink hot chocolate, and take advantage of a wintry wonderland.  We asked you to tag us on Instagram or use #weheartsnow to show us how you spent your day. Here’s some of our favorites. If you aren’t following us on Instagram yet..you should! You can find us @weheartastoria.

Night_Snow DayAdmittedly pictures like this did make it seem like things had the potential to get a little intense. I’m sure the black and white filter has something to do with that…

Paper Factory_Snow_InstagramI mean if you had to be stranded in a snowstorm, wouldn’t you want to stay at the Paper Factory hotel?

SingleCut_Snow DayWhen preparing for a blizzard that never was, one should always include some form of alcohol. What a great way to a make sure those beverages stay cold. Great idea SingleCut!

Snow Day Instagram_CollageWe love this collage from reader and fellow Instagrammer. I especially love the little dog all dressed up for a winter storm!

Astoria Book Shop_Snow DayCurling up next to the fireplace (the fake one on Netflix) and reading under a blanket is how I spent most of my day. I would say The Astoria Bookshop made an excellent snow day recommendation.

Fat Snowman_Snow DayDo you want to build a snowman??? (Yes I do!)

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 6.11.52 PMThose are some serious snowdrifts dude. If you look past the mountains of snow, you can see Belief in the distance.

Snow Day_Reader_InstagramOMG don’t you love how this Instagrammer captured the snowflakes? We sure did!

Bear_Snow DayChef Natasha of Bear is hidden somewhere in this picture…

Snow Day_Astoria ParkOur very own Meg took a great shot of kids (and adults) slipping and sledding in Astoria Park.

Snow Day_Kids in SledNo park to sled in? That’s okay! Use the street.

Bourbon & Vine_SnowdayIf you don’t have a sled use a surfboard.

Swing_Snow DayOr skip the sledding all together and swing!

Emily_Snow DayI couldn’t help myself!  I had to get in on the #weheartsnow action. Finally got to use my new snow boots!

Thanks for sharing your snow day pictures with us! Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram @weheartastoria!
