Snow, Snow, and More Snow!!

Snow has continued to fall all day. I am feeling much better about not going to work today because road conditions have gotten worse as the day has gone on and now part of Highway 16 is closed! Who knows if I could have gotten home! Ruh just put the chains on the car and he is braving the conditions to get to work. He comes home in the middle of the night and I really hope he makes it home! He has a bunch of survival stuff in the car but that doesn't make me feel any better.

School was closed today and Daisy went outside to play in the snow. There is a little boy about 8 or 9 who lives across the street. He was outside all by himself playing in his yard and eventually he sauntered over to our yard and started talking to Daisy. Daisy grabbed our two sleds and they went over to his house and he has a big hill in his backyard and they sledded for a while. Daisy said his name is Tristan and he told Daisy the boy who lived here before us wasn't very nice. I think he was glad to find Daisy was a very nice girl. :)

I went outside and took some pictures and video. It is coming down fast and heavy! I am listening to Christmas music and I am going to bake gingerbread cookies. I wish my mom was here right now to bake Christmas cookies with me in my new big kitchen. She and my dad are already down in LA and we will be heading down this coming Tuesday. The weather forecast says it's suppose to snow on Tuesday! I am praying for no flight delays since we are suppose to arrive in LA at 10pm. That would stink if it ended up being in the middle of the night. Until then I am going to stay warm and cozy inside and enjoy the beautiful snow.
