After the Blizzard.
Day two. No school. Highways still closed. The drifts on the highways are reportedly 3- 4 feet deep and the snowplows were getting stuck. The biggest drift it seems was reserved for our front door. Its easily 5 1/2 feet tall. I laughed at the newspaper that usually resides someplace on the front steps in the morning. Apparently the edge of our driveway had to suffice today. I was actually surprised the newspaper delivery person was able to get out at all.
We're a little stir-crazy. And I have been literally "under" the weather with a sore throat. But with visions of what two young boys are capable of I haven't lounged around much. There have been lots of games and running back and forth to the neighbors to play, and bickering to settle when the kids run out of ideas. But we're buoyed with hopes for the State Tournament and our trip to St. Paul early tomorrow morning.
We'll be gone till sometime on Sunday. I have no idea if I'll be able to post or not. I'll be thinking of everyone! My friend Robin is a new Grandma as of yesterday. But she could use your prayers and well wishes if you are so inclined. Little baby girl was born 4 weeks early and is barely 4 lbs. and in the NICU. And Robin's daughter, new mom Stephanie is very sick with many underlying health concern which is why the baby had to be taken early. I know she would welcome your thoughts and prayers. You can visit her at Robin Rane.
