Now We Have SnIce

So we have been snowed/iced in here for most of the week.  I stole the awesome word from my friend LeAnn.  I thought it was perfect!  This past Sunday we prepared for what the meteorologist said was going to be the worst winter weather event since our Winter Storm of ‘93.  Jarred and I had been out of town for one of my best friends, Christy’s wedding (more on that to come later) and stopped at several home stores to try to find a heater (because if anyone’s power is going to go out, ours will) and lucked up and found an indoor safe propane heater, but guess what, no propane!  Oh well, we just went on the fly. 


Right around dark it started sleeting.  It was coming down really hard and really fast.  Within an hour we had a lovely sheet of ice on everything.  By 8 that night our street was covered with ice and snow.  Everything has pretty much been shut down all week.  Luckily our power never did go out.  The schools are out and a lot of the roads are still really scary.  I finally got to go back to work yesterday.

The boys really enjoyed it and this was Colyn’s first time to really get out in it.  He liked it for a little while but was so bundled up he looked like the little boy from A Christmas Story, he could not move.  He would just stand in the snow and not move a muscle.  It was really cute!  Jacob also got to get his truck out and had fun sliding on the ice driving down the road like Daddy.

The snIce is beautiful but let’s be honest, I am so ready for it to be gone.  It is still covering everything, summer please come soon!
