Another Snow Day



So...I've been off blogger for about two weeks. It feels odd, because we have SOOO much that's happened over the last two weeks and I can't wait to write about it all. For now, I thought I'd just share a quick screen shot of what our road closings look like. The X marks a closed road and the R marks a serious road condition report. Pretty much any road that leads to our town is closed. We've had a lot of this, recently, but it still seems unreal that on April 5th it could be this crazy. Even our local news reported the following just last night:

Numerous vehicles continue to become stranded as crews tried to clear the roads, but the howling winds pile snow on the streets. According to a Chadron official, the streets are so bad that even snow removal vehicles are becoming stuck, and just one police pick-up truck and a utilities department pick-up are available for emergency use. Please, stay indoors.

I think we'll stay snuggled up indoors for a bit (which is quite romantic, actually). I guess it's a good thing that Lee and I love snow so much. :) I'll try to use the next couple days to catch up on laundry and make my belated blog rounds (like I don't have any school work or grading to do this time of the semester, right?). I'm appearing a little anti-social in the blogosphere lately, which is just WEIRD!

Just LOOK at my hunk out there shoveling that snow. I expect to see him by tomorrow sometime. It's a lot more work than it looks like. Trust me!



Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers.

LOL! Jim has been telling me all morning "I'm going to work". I had different thoughts on this. Well after showing him the map you had placed here I think he has changed his mind!!! LOL! Thanks so much for helping me keep my hubby home :) Alliance is just to far away to send him.

I was a little disappointed to wake up to no snow this morning, after they had warned we might get up to 12 inches at one point. But then again, looking at this, I really can't be bothered shoveling snow again. I'm sure Spring will be here sometime soon...

Glad everyone is in where it's warm. The snow will be gone soon. I'm envious of you spending time with your kids. Mine went home with Grandma and Grandpa Friday night, and I haven't seen them since. My hubby has been doing snow removal all day, so I am here alone! (But I'm scrapbooking, so I'm still having fun!) Take care!

You dad and I enjoyed a wonderful walk in the sunshine this afternoon and shot pictures of budding trees and flowers. We even have a tomato now. We went to early service (I know, shock!) and he's been working on taxes this afternoon, and I've been catching up on different things. Did you see Brighton's birthday party story? I love how it turned out. Phone charger arrived. I'm back in the phone business now!! ;-) Thank you!

Snow in the spring is just cruel and unusual punishment. So sorry Mother Nature did that to you. Your husband is a real trooper. Hopefully that will be the end of it:)

ok so i think you have more snow than me :( I woke up to a white yard when I really wanted to see a GREEN yard!

Hope your day is going great! Stopping by from SITS

Wow. It's been a while since I shoveled snow, but I remember the pain. Props to your wonderful hubby! I have to say, even though it's April, I'm a little jealous of all the beautiful snow. I miss it in Virginia.
