Last Wednesday I went to our daughter’s house to babysit our grandson since our SIL was out of town on business.  Our daughter was one of the moms who had to help with a Valentine’s Day party at school and younger siblings were not allowed to attend.

They live west of us so I checked the weather forecast for Thursday and Friday.  We were supposed to get 5-8 inches of snow and they were supposed to get 1-3 inches of snow.

Well, it didn’t quite turn out that way.

She got at least 10 inches of snow and we got 17 inches of snow.

I was stranded at her house.


So we made the best of it.  The twins and I went out to build a snowman Thursday afternoon even though it was still snowing.


They have a 4-wheeler with a plow but it just wasn’t enough to clear the half-mile driveway quickly.   Our daughter had never used the plow but figured it out.  There was just too much snow and got it cleared enough to drive on after she worked on it for over three hours.

I got to my office about six hours late.


Normally I would have just gone home but I had to pick up a few things to take on an upcoming business trip.  To Florida.  Where I understand is warm, sunny, and snow-less!

I do have pictures of a finished sweater I will share later in the week.
