When I heard about the blizzard heading our way, I wondered how long it would take before we would be able to get out of our driveway. Now I'm beginning to wonder how long it will take before we're able to get out of our house.
We go in and out of our garage and the picture above shows how high the drift is in front of our garage door. That's what we would have to climb over (through) to get to our driveway and our vehicles. Snow always drifts behind our garage doors so we don't park our cars in the garage when a storm is coming. Little did I know we'd have to worry about getting ourselves out of the garage!
Two-thirds of ND is shut down due to this storm and tomorrow doesn't seem to be looking any better. We knew at 8:30 last night that school was cancelled today so we made popcorn and stayed up late watching the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie. What a treat to be able to stay up late on a school night and just hang out with my kids. My husband is on his way to California so he's missing all the fun.
Today will be spent playing games, watching movies and maybe taking a nap. Maybe God gives us days like this to force us to slow down. I know that here in the frozen tundra otherwise known as North Dakota, I'm going to do just that.


  1. You need to take up a snowy day craft. I would go for cross stitch as my passion if I had it to do over as scrap booking is expensive, quilting ends up with such big cumbersome things to work on, gardening is out of the question and I am not that into knitting and crochet but cross stitch can be quick, it is easy, the patterns are free, the supplies are low cost and you can hang them on the wall when they are done! How about it Cyn? Of course there is also another passion of mine...reading. Reading is a perfect snowy day occupation. Well I am praying this is the end. I still can't believe you got it all and I got zippo! Still love you even if you are hogging all the snow. Snowy Smiles For You.

  2. Hello Cyn...

    Ohhh my, you guys really did have a storm move in!!! Your "snow days" with the kids sounds like fun...to bad that your honey had to go to California and that he couldn't be "shut in" at home with ya'll!

    Well my new found friend, stay warm and be safe!
    Warmest wishes,
