BLIZZARD!




Holland is undergoing its first blizzard in 4 years and we're smack dab in the middle of it. We've been snowed in since this morning. I went out to shovel the driveway earlier. I'm not sure I even made a dent in the snow. We had drifts up to 3 feet and I think we're supposed to get another 8 inches tonight!

Matt and I ventured out earlier to get a few groceries (and snow boots - neither of us owned any!). The roads were fine on the way there, but on the way back we almost got killed. This woman pulled out in front of us - but Matt did a great job pumping the breaks without fish tailing. I think I'm more scared of the other people on the roads than I am driving on them.

My high school friend, Robin, is getting married in less than a half hour and there's no way we're going to be able to make it to the wedding. I feel so bad. But, at least she'll have a great story to tell about her wedding day.

Pray that we don't kill each other over the weekend. Matt's getting a little stir crazy! Enjoy the pictures - knowing you're not here!

Booga doesn't seem to mind all the snow. Sounds like you had a close call at the grocery store, but I'm glad you are both safe (complete with your trendy snow boots). I can't imagine 3 feet and then 8 ". Burr!
