Phew - what a day! We were hit with this massive snow storm - as I'm sure many of you were - today and I am so grateful that all my family finally made it home safe and sound.
The question is: What do you call it when it is snowing, sleeting, AND thundering (I'm talking blizzard snow, stinging ice balls, and crazy loud/long thunder)??? My co-workers said it was called a big mess - I was trying to get more creative ----sneeth?
It took me 40 minutes to travel the 8 miles home, and had to stop twice to get the ice off the windshild wipers and also got stuck ON the highway . . not in the ditch, not in a snowbank, but in the middle of the road. The main thoroughfare in the middle of
town. It was crazy! I wasn't the only one as people will stuck everywhere. A city truck was on it's side in a ditch near my house. I man pushing driveways with his truck ended up in my front yard and then the individual trying to help him out ALSO ended
up in my yard. Now it freezing rain adding to the mixture.
I made some brownies for my guys this afternoon and they are half gone already! Guess they were good . . . we had stocked up on water and I had prepared some food ahead of time in case the electricity goes out. Cold chicken is always good :) The firewood
is stacked and we are safe and toasty, so if we can't get out tomorrow that is ok. I am praying that everyone who was hit by this is also home with the families.
