Let it snow!
We got the most snowfall we've had since we moved here yesterday. We ended up with about 6 inches. It was/is beautiful...as long as you weren't out driving in it. It's crazy that 6 inches of snow could shut down an entire NE part of the state. The interstates were shut down due to overturned tractor trailers and the side roads didn't get cleared. It took Mike almost 7 hours to get home from work last night. He left early at 5:30 and walked in the door at 12:30. Dad left the shop at 4:30 and after only making it 2 miles in 2 hours, he gave up and walked the mile to our house where he spent the night. Unfortunately he didn't have his anti rejection meds with him so he missed his 7pm dose and was 2 hours late on the 7am one. It took mom 5.5 hours to go from Johnson City to within a mile of their house. At that point, the van was stuck and she walked the rest of the way. What a mess! On a good note, the boys have had a blast today. The have been outside pretty much all day sledding and playing in the snow. Even Noah was anxious to get out there. He brought me his jacket and hat first thing this am. Unfortunately Mike had to head back to work this morning for a 24. It's so pretty out though. Just wish it would stay for Christmas!
