Snow Day!

This morning we woke up to a foot of wet, sloppy snow. The car tried it's best to make its way out of our rather formidable (in the winter at least) driveway to no avail. I was stuck 10 feet out the garage door. So, I did what any self respecting girl would do. I called my mommy.

Gook road was impassable to anything other than 4 wheel drive, so I walked out to the highway so my mom could pick me up. Of course today was the staff potluck lunch at my school, so I also had to carry a tray of food.

It was still snowing and the snow was up to my knees as I trudged through the unplowed roads. When I was almost at my destination (after several people had passed me already) a very gentlemanly neighbour finally stopped to ask if I might need a ride. I didn't, but I loved the fact that in this day and age, someone would still find it within themselves to ask.

It is now ten o'clock in the evening and the snow has turned to rain making a bad situation on the roads even worse. Keith is currently on his way home through the pine pass and will be driving through the night. We hope that he travels safely and that anyone in need of a helping hand tonight finds a good-hearted fellow traveler on the road willing to help out. -R
