Blizzard 2011

So it's the blizzard of 2011! I think things have finally settled down...and we're seeing signs of getting back to a normal routine.

It all started Monday night with some snow...both Andy and Seth got Tuesday off (which was called Tuesday morning). By the afternoon the roads were clear and we even went to the library. But around 3ish it started snowing again...and the winds came...and it started with some ice. The schools were called off again for Wednesday on Tuesday night. Wednesday, the boys and I spent all day at home. Andy did go snow blow a neighboring addition's walking trail. It was pretty deep...and it blew alot. Just glad we had a warm home and plenty of food.

Speaking of food...there was quite the build-up for this storm. I actually went to the store on Monday mornign at 7:30 and it wasn't busy at all. But...evidently by 10 or so it was packed and INSANE.

So's Wed. night and Andy is already called off for tomorrow and Seth has a delay. Who knows how the country roads are and what lays ahead?

We've just been hanging out..watching some movies...taking a few naps...staying up late...sleeping in (yeah for Grant for sleeping until 8:30)...playing games. (I will admit, Andy has been a champ clearing our driveway and doing his "job" for another association.)
Today...we did go out and play for a while.

Andy and Seth dug a tunnel

Grant got mad when I put him in the snow

Seth stood on top of some serious snow piles

And Grant was most content...walking up and down the sidewalks...kicking the side of the snow. What else could the poor boy do...with his gloves, he can hardly move his hands.
