It snowed!

Yes, it snowed!  And that is an understatement for sure.  Although I'm not sure of the exact total in our area, everywhere around us received somewhere between 7 and 9 inches of snow, so I'm sure ours is close to that.  In addition to that much snow, the night after it snowed, there were wind gusts over 35 miles per hour, which caused some major drifting.  And as beautiful as all of this is,

Kevin was scheduled to work at 4am the morning after all of this.  Here is his attempt at getting out to work.... 

It was so dark that early in the morning, he couldn't tell how bad it had drifted.  Needless to say, he didn't make it in that morning.  And it took quite a lot of digging and help from a neighbor to actually get unstuck at all.  Ah, the joys of living in the Midwest!

Hopefully, we'll have a chance this weekend to actually get out and play in it at least!  Maybe during halftime of the Superbowl today?!  Go Colts!
