Snow...again...

Everywhere you look around here there is snow...

 It started yesterday morning, causing the buses to practically turn back around
 and pick the students back up from school to return them home..
I believe their school day lasted for about 2 hours.
 Before long we had a white coating everywhere, so in order to keep up with it, I decided we should start the shoveling between the two storms they were calling for.  
SOMEone was not very happy about helping with shoveling...
She tried to convince me, 
"I don't DO snow..."

Sorry, Chickie...neither do I, but today...
we all do!
So she got the job of shoveling the front sidewalk...

 The snow started up again later in the afternoon and by bedtime had made it's landing over everything.
I had a feeling that we'd awaken to a hard job today...
and we did...

This is some really heavy snow...
and unfortunately, I realized we only own TWO shovels even though there are THREE able bodies...
 So...off he went up to the top of the drive...
to the part that the plows dump onto, giving us even more to shovel..
 while she and I took turns with the second shovel...
 Honestly...we got about halfway done before we all decided WE QUIT...
and it sits out there waiting for us to finish the job....
which we will.

Sometime before it gets dark.
I'm SURE of it.

Meanwhile, I came in for one of these
and finished THIS...
And now, with wet hair, the last thing I feel like doing is putting THESE back on...
 But...it must be done...

Also...apparently if you are forced to stay home for a few days because your car is stranded in the driveway
you actually can change your mind and "DO" snow.
Apparently, 
because she did this....
 and this...
don't be too impressed, though
the tallest one is two feet high.

All in all, we've gotten along pretty well all trapped in here together...
We've had THIS to remind us to have a little grace...
and I guess it works when you choose to live by it.

The sun is starting to make its' way down...and if I don't make it happen now, 
chances are my car will still be stuck here tomorrow...
the time has come.

We are missing this guy who is now snowed in at school...
{picture taken as he makes a last ditch effort to finish all his laundry before heading back to school on Tuesday...}

it really does make a difference when he is here to help dig us out!

Enjoy the day off of classes, dude...
and take a look outside, there might be someone who could use a helping hand.
We love you and miss you already around these parts!
Fo' REAL!

Tim and the girls shoveled the drive yesterday between the storms, too. Then at about 10:30 pm I went out to shovel about 10 inches of snow off of the bottom of the driveway - just enough for him to pull his car in off the road. Also Emily came out and helped me with a path from the spot and to the house so he could make it inside!
Today he and the girls again cleared the whole driveway. Do you still need help? I could have him stop by tomorrow before noon. Seriously - he'd be glad to help!
