White Christmas

We were supposed to leave at 5am this morning for our long-anticipated vacation in Colorado.  Yesterday at 1pm the blizzard began and lasted until a couple hours ago.  The snow plows are just now beginning to work on the roads, so we don't know how long our trip will be delayed.  I've decided to work on my long-neglected blog to try to make me thankful for the things I have.  I confess that I'm not feeling particularly thankful right now.  I was pretty attached to the idea of a cozy vacation in the mountains of Colorado.

First up: photos of the storm.  We'll see if this turns into a true blogging marathon or merely a 5K.

Phil removed the snow from the side of the house so there wouldn't be an "ice dam".

Our view of the homes across the street.  We couldn't get across the street to get a photo of our house.  We're hoping the snow plows don't take too long to get to our street and then we can head out.

After looking at these photos, I can say that I'm thankful for a snowblower and very thankful for a hubby to take care of all that outside "man stuff."
