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.
