snow day.

I haven't left the house since friday.  wanna know why?  because a snow storm hit us.  a snow storm so terrible it would make the abominable snow man cower in fear.  so, we've been enjoying each other's company at home.  
we had a tree fall on our car.  the deej cleared it off.  
our heater and water heater have both gone out on us.  the deej restored them both.  
we've had intermittent power failures.  the power keeps coming back on.   
there was a mandatory water conservation order.  it was lifted.
we've had good friends who were without power for 24 hours stay the day with us.  we had a delightful time.  
church was canceled.
school is canceled.
we're still being told to stay off the road.
oh... and guess what?  we're supposed to get ten more inches tomorrow.
no biggie.

here's the beginning of the storm on Friday night at 12:30am.  (If you look really closely, you can see the tail lights of a car that was going around the corner).

here's how much more snow we had only 7 1/2 hours later.

I hate the snow.
so where does this little guy get it from?


who knows? 

but he sure is cute.


oh, and don't forget, this here bloggie is goin' private this week.  leave a comment on the post below if you haven't already, and add http://keepinupfrontpage.blogspot.com/ to your google reader so you know when we update.  :)

hope you're warm and cozy.

loves.

So its starting to look like we might be able to come this weekend (with all that snow!!) So we might postpone our trip for another weekend (which makes me happy, because then I'll be able to see you!!)

I can't believe all the snow you guys are getting- I think it's best not to go anywhere and cuddle up at home with hot cocoa and a good book.

P.S. Got the pics. Love. them.

With a snow storm like that I am sure your move to Arizona doesn't seem to be coming fast enough. Stay warm! And really, Mack is adorable.

We're enjoying the snow, too. Thankfully, a tree didn't fall on our car, though! That's kind of crazy.

Your street looks so quaint in the snow! Makes me miss late girls nights at your house. I can't get over all the snow you guys have gotten. I do NOT miss driving those hills in the winter, that's for sure!

What do you mean, where does he get it from? His Grandpappy has always loved the snow--snow mobiles, snow skis, sledding, going on hoods, klondike. it is in his genes!
