aaah. nothing like being snowed in. nothing at all. forced to sit in front of the fire and blog:) ha.
nothing like plowing through 1 - 2 foot drifts. nothing like sliding around on the ice in the 4x4.nothing like- 'neighbourly love' helping each other out of the ditch,or the drifts, the beauty of the 'hand carved' snow drifts looking like frosting, teased and curled into luscious whisps of smoothness. nothing like stinging cheeks from the howling - 40 degree (Celsius) wind nothing like warmth in the house, nothing like getting to spend the night in the city (we didn't but lots of friends did) nothing like driving 10 miles of road to get town and it taking us 40 min instead of 10 because visibility is ZERO!!! nothing like seeing lights in the distance when you can't even see the road in front of you...My friend had her hand on the driving wheel and I did too. I watched my side of the road. when we got to far to middle of road I would steer the car back to 'my side. yep. it was freaky, my heart even pounded a few times (from being claustrophobic.) but we made it!!! and now it is a memory we will never forget. aaah. yes, nothing like a good ole prairie blizzard- WHEN- you have lots of food, a 4x4 truck, and good friends to hang with!!!
