Happy First Day of Winter

We really got dumped on! I bet we had a foot of snow on Friday and here are my poor guys digging us out of it so we could get the cars out of the driveway. The roads were still pretty snow-covered that evening when we had to go bowling. It takes a while to get a foot of snow off the roads. The good thing was I had a snow day because of the snow so that was nice. Howard stayed home too as his boss told everyone to take their laptops home because if school was closed they could work from home. Yesterday we just worked on getting packed and trying to finish up last minute things because it looks like we might have to leave for the airport this afternoon, get a hotel close to the airport so that we can leave on time Monday morning (if the planes are leaving on time) because we are getting more snow tonight. It might be a difficult drive at 2:30 a.m., more difficult than at 4:00 p.m. We'll see how it goes. We just don't want to miss our plane! Hundreds of flights were cancelled Friday night but we aren't getting that much snow tonight so I don't thinnk we will have the same problems. It is supposed to be really cold though with a high of only 19 on Monday. Good thing we are heading for warmer climates!! Look at our little house! Sometimes I really wonder why we live here. It's so nasty and cold during the winter. Even the animals struggle. The poor birds were all huddled up while the snow was coming down. It was a good thing I filled the feeders the day before because they really were flocking around it yesterday during the storm. The pups were enjoying it though, at least Charlie. It was a little deep for Zoe. She was hopping around like a bunny. And while some of you might find this next part annoying, I found it very entertaining, though a bit loud! I was just trying to get their heads twisting but they really got into it and took over!!

This will probably be my last post for a while, unless "someone" lets me use their laptop while we are away.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Christmas and a healthy, Happy New Year too!
We'll be at the beach!!
