Yes We Have ...
SNOW! According to the local weather gurus, this latest winter storm has dumped the most snow in the past fifty years! We got about two feet in a day and a half ... that's on top of the 10 inches last week ... on top of the already compacted foot. Yesterday I spent about three hours doing my best to compact the snow on our driveway before plowing some of it. With this much snow ... where to put it is the question? Just getting out of the garage was difficult with four wheel drive ... and coming back from picking up my grandbaby my four wheel truck got stuck on a snow berm. Being a 'manly' woman ... (as my daughter calls me) ... I hiked from the street to the house with baby in arms ... grabbed a snow shovel and dug out the truck ... a nice neighbor came over to help. That hubby of mine! Just where was he?? In San Diego on a vacation day with friends! (And he complained that it was raining ;( ...poor baby!) Of course, all of the school districts took a snow day. Let's see, all last week Nathan was home sick with a cold ... and now a snow day ... I'm so looking forward to him going back to school tomorrow ;) ... he's been bouncing off the walls (me too).
