We have snow! I am not sure exactly how much we got, but it was more then we’ve had for several years now, and it was sticky too. It was a out-right blizzard yesterday. Today was bright and sunny, so we have all been out enjoying the snow. We made snow houses in the biggest drifts, and I made the most wonderful snow-woman. Jeremy kept getting stuck in drifts and even lost his boots once. He is so cute! The snow itself was not really that deep, but it was so unbelievably windy yesterday that it drifted and made very deep piles of snow in various places. One of those places was our lane; the snow was drifted about three feet deep at the bottom of our lane. We girls and Dad started to shovel the lane this morning, and we knew it would take us a very long time to shovel all of that snow. But! The snow-plough went by just then. Oh, we were so hoping he would take pity on us and plough our lane, and guess what- he did! We are forever in the debt of the snow-plough man.
This last weekend we remembered the anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq war three years ago. I honor the memory of those soldiers killed in this war, and say thank you to all those laboring for a free and safe Iraq. Three years, 2000 American dead, and people are already saying we should get out. When did Americans become so spineless? We must stay the course!
