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.
