I know Daniel did always shovel snow at the church and at his house too, so you may be very right about that!
It is so beautiful to see all the snow, but what a pain to have to shovel.
At the moment we are snowed in. Charlie and I got in front of our garage cleared today, but there is a lot more to go before we get out of here. We are going to have to get the drive plowed and there was no one able to do that today and I'm worried if we can get it done Friday, but am determined to find someone. Our county and several surrounding ones were put on a level 3 emergency, which is the worst, and means no one except emergency people are allowed on the streets and roads. They were writing tickets to people that went out. The sheriff declared our county a snow disaster. Nice huh! The Dayton tv station even said the hospital for up here was closed. Didn't know you could close a hospital! The interstates were shut down for miles and coverage from the air showed a long parking lot. People had been sitting all night and today. They were going to start trying to rescue people with snowmobiles and try to get them in off the interstate.
At least we are warm and safe at home with power, food, all that we need. Our 2 dogs loved it out in the snow. One of them was so excited that he kept barking wanting to go right back out and play. We couldn't let him in the back yard because drifts were higher than we are and we were afraid of what could happen, so my babies had to be content to go out in the spot we had cleared and to play on the smaller drifts. So, we are basically fine, but I get this bit of panic when I know we can't get out to the road.
I haven't talked to my sister yet this evening to see what they told her about Daniel today. I'll call in a minute to find out and will let you know what I found out.
Yep, wind and rain would sure be better than all this we have! Glad you are able to get around up there, Pam! Hope everyone else is doing ok out there.
