Snowed In

The snow started last night around 8 pm while we were out enjoying a date. It's now 7 pm the next day and it's still snowing. They are expecting around 20 inches. In Virginia this almost never happens, so people freak out! Since we have a 4-wheel drive truck, we decided to go have some fun and shop while everyone else was at home. Unfortunately, everyone else was at home; therefore, the stores all closed and we didn't get to do much shopping. We did get to be good Samaritans, though by using our truck to pull several people's cars out. Actually Rob used his muscles more than anything, because most of the cars didn't have anything to hitch the tow rope onto. I wish at least Toy's R Us had been open- we don't have a sled and we are now ready to play!!

were the people you pulled out from the DC/Virginia area or southern states where they don't know how to drive in the snow?

Yes, we remember a winter like that when we lived in Virginia. The hill in back of our house made a perfect sliding hill. Tubes and plastic sheets actually worked better than sleds. It was wonderful to slide down to your back door and come in hot cocoa before the next slide.

I'm glad you were prepared. I guess Wyoming does that to you. I was wondering if you were ok. Merry Christmas.
