We've got one! Oh my! We have drifts as high as Sweetheart's shoulders. Many of the cars on our block are just white mounds of snow. The snow has finally stopped falling for now and everyone is out trying to move snow. I'll try to post pictures later.
Sweetheart got to leave work early yesterday and after a two hour commute was home. I'm so glad Pumpkin and I did our errands on Tuesday. We all sat around the fire eating popcorn, drinking hot chocolate, and watching movies. It was a great snow day. We had a lot of fun.
Today, Sweetheart has been working from home via the computer and I've been making soup, cleaning, and getting cookie plates together for the neighbors. Now that Pumpkin's napping I think I'll see about passing those cookies out. I might seriously need snowshoes to get next door. Maybe Sweetheart will pass them out for me.
Our out of town family members called to see if it was as bad as it looked on television. I told them it probably was! This may throw a wrench into our travel plans, but I won't worry about that now. It really has messed up gifts though, as we've had no mail or deliveries yesterday, or today, and tomorrow's not looking too good. Sigh. I can't do anything about that either and will just figure it out when everything arrives.
I need to keep my focus on what the holiday is all about. At least if we can't get together with everyone else, we are warm and safe here and surrounded by love (and snow!). Thank you Jesus, for our many Blessings, but especially for coming into this world as a precious Baby to save us all. Thank You for loving us.
