Snow, snow, & more snow

In the latest message from Molly, she mentioned that the kids were able to see Joyce play in the snow when she went home for Christmas. Using a webcam, they were able to film walking through the snow and throwing it up in the air and making a snowball. Apparently it made quite an impression because Peterson knows that in Canada he'll be able to play in the snow and "He can't wait."

Well, I can't wait to see him play in the snow either, but I myself am sick of the stuff. Robin and Emily made it to Haiti safe and sound on Tuesday, completely ahead of the snow that we got that day. So on Wednesday when I went out to shovel, I just about cried. It was crusty on top which was troublesome enough, but then when I looked to the end of the driveway, the snowplow had left a HUGE pile. And there was no place to shovel it. I was half way through the mound of snow and our house builder came by in his truck and completely decimated the snow for me. YEAH!!!!!

But later on when I went to start the car, it was frozen in the driveway. I chipped away at the ice in the driveway but no luck. Again, another man to my resuce. My neighbor came over and helped me get the car out. THANK YOU.

Normally, by the end of winter I am more than happy to see the white stuff gone. I think this winter is so much worse than usual because of the ice. There's always ice/freezing rain somewhere in the mix. If we could just get rid of the ice, I think I could handle the snow.

Anyway, end of rant. And I really just wrote that for Robin in case he gets a chance to see this, to let him know that I really miss him. Especially when it snows!

Oh do I hear you. I am so sick of the snow. It's not pretty & white any more just kind of dirty and piled up everyone. PTL for sunshine today, though.
