Nine Inches

This morning the guys were back working on our shed roof.  They said they wouldn't be here if it snowed so I was glad when I woke up and could hear them pounding out there.  Dancer was at a sleep over birthday party last night and we left to get her a little before ten o'clock.  One of the guys came over to us as we were getting in the car and said that they were going to quit because a few flakes were falling and they wanted to get everything put away if snowed any harder and didn't want anyone to slip on the roof.  The roads were fine to get Dancer, we drove the regular speed.  It took us about 15 minutes to pick her up because they were playing Just Dance II on the Wii and were just finishing up.  After we left we headed into town to go to the big library downtown, not the branch one that is closer.  When we came out of the library it had snowed a wee bit more but nothing much.  Spark wanted to go to the Goodwill, Spark always wants to go to the Goodwill, which is on our way out of town.  By the time we got over there we decided that we were going to abort that plan and just head for home.  By the time we made it out of town we could only drive 35 miles an hour, could hardly see and the snow was flying behind us like were in a motor boat.  When we pulled in the driveway I breathed a huge sigh of relief thinking the worst was over but Dad slid back down the driveway while trying to get the car in the garage.  The dumpster for the old shingles is sitting kinda crooked in the drive and we all thought we were going to hit it but we didn't thankfully.  We piled out and shoveled to get the car in and by the time we got done we had to shovel again.  The second time we shoveled as quick as we possibly could and then Dad zoomed the car in still slipping and sliding while we were cheering him on and he made it in the garage.  The snow kept coming down and by 3:00 this afternoon we had nine inches of perfect snowman making snow.  It is going to be a long winter if this sticks around until spring.

Oh no! I hope they get a chance to finish your roof soon. It must be frustrating to have this happen when they were going to finish it.

Prayers and good thoughts that the snow doesn't stick around. :o)

Peace and Laughter,
