The storm today...

On the highway going very slow, 2 snowplows were up ahead.
Our driveway...had to put the truck in 4 wheel drive just to get up it!

Well the storm started around 6 a.m., it was snowing some but not too much...way less than what had been predicted. The school buses were not canceled although they should have been because of what we got later on. James,Kaedyn and I went out to look at mini vans since ours is on it's last legs...We stopped in at Millbrook and the snow had stopped but the rain began. By the time we had finished lunch, it was snowing so bad again that we only looked at one auo place than headed home. the highway was down to one lane and was at a snails pace, although there were some really dumb people that were in such a hurry that they were passing everyone in the lane that was not plowed. Thank God James was driving because I was panicking. There were cars in the ditches and visibility but pretty much zero! We decided to pick Brynn and Rhys up from school early because it was getting really bad out and the side roads were not plowed at all. We found out later on the news that part of the highway that we had been on had been shutdown shortly after we had been on it because tractor trailers could not get up the hills on the snowy highways and people were getting stuck in the passing lanes therefor emergency vehicles could not get through to help those that were in accidents. stupid drivers that have no patience! We finally made it home safely but our driveway was mess. Thank goodness for 4 wheel drive. The snow has stopped, it is wet and very heavy. Our hydro was going off and on constantly because of the heavy snow. Noah made it back from his trip safely and the bus was not to delayed. Good thing cause where he came from is getting this awful weather now! Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day weather wise and w can get out and look at more vehicles, I need one badly.

Hope everyone had a safe day and has a wonderful weekend! Wishing I was in Florida with mu mom right now, it was 85 degrees there today :)

Hugs and blessings, Trish
