Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Wow...have we gotten the snow. Our area usually doesn't get it like this. It started snowing yesterday morning shortly before we awoke. I tried to drive down our 'steep' mountain road thinking I could make it to work, work a few hours and then get back home before it got too bad. Well, boy was I wrong. Shortly after pulling out of our driveway I was regretting my decision but since our road is all down hill, I didn't feel comfortable turning around. I 'slid' all the way to the bottom, turned around and up the mountain I came. It was very dangerous, slippery, steep cliffs to my right and not a great idea at all. It took me more than 30 minutes to go 3 miles (down and then back up again). Boy was my husband glad to see me pulling back into the driveway. The stress and the pressure of that (short) drive caused me to walk right into the house and fall into my hubby's arms bawling my head off. He kept saying "at least your home safe now, it's all ok". It took me a good 30 minutes to finally calm down and realize that...I had a Snow Day!!! Yeah. Our company decided to close down, something that they just don't do. Our entire county was just blanketed. I was glad to call my team members to let them know to enjoy their 'Snow Day'. It snowed all day long. We ended up getting between 10 and 12 inches. It is absolutely beautiful. We are just glad that we didn't loose power and that we had food in the cabinets. We have made Potato Soup, Russian Tea, Grilled Cheese, and best of all...snow cream. (yum) We have been snowed in for two days and they have already canceled church for tomorrow...that will make 3 days. My hubby and I have played cards, watched tons of Christmas movies, worked in our home office, I have has been a wonderful time. I am sure that are those of you who got way more snow than us but this is big, very big around here.
