Picture taken from our garden area of a fairly large drift...the largest in our yard anyway.
Here you can see that the drift is above the top wire of the electric fence. Our area got somewhere between 14 and 16 inches of snow.
Despite the bad roads, Rich did make it to work on Monday. He worried me the whole time I knew he was on the road. Before I knew he'd be leaving work to come home, the kids and I stopped what we were doing to pray for his safety in making it home. I hadn't seen a single vehicle go through ALL day and couldn't imagine him making it through-even with the truck. He was about 5 miles from home when I saw the snow plow go down our road...all I could think was God was answering our prayers. I called him to let him know right away. Rich had to take a round about way to get here, but he made it! (He didn't end up going to work Tuesday, though, thankfully!)
I feel very blessed to be able to be home with the kids and not worry about trying to make it to work, like I know many moms have to. These few days have made me want to homeschool too...I just love being home with the kids! Blake enjoys it too, but Morgan can not wait to go back to school...I think she misses her friends more than anything.
Anyway, if you're wondering where I've been, I've been here. ;-) I'll be posting more soon, but for now I'm going to continue enjoying the extended vacation!
