Blizzard of 2009

Well, here we are... 24 hours and 36 inches of snow!! Chris said the last time he remembers this much snow here before Christmas, he wasn't much older than Abby. It started last night about 5:00PM and has been snowing here since. At times there were the biggest flakes coming down that I think I had ever seen! Abby was up at 6:00am and I had to bribe her with hot cocoa with marshmallows, but as soon as Mikaylah was up and fed, they were both bundled up and out in the snow. It came up past both of their knees and it was hard to walk in, but that didn't stop them from having a great time! Chris helped his uncle scrape the lane, and although it took a long time, they made a lot of headway. Church has been canceled and we won't get out tomorrow, but neither will a lot of people here in the valley. Don't worry about us... we are well stocked with water, milk, bread... and lots of hot cocoa and marshmallows!! Those are the essentials of this snowy adventure!
