Snow Days!

by @ Monday, December 15th, 2008. Filed under update


Joe had an uneventful trip back from California, his flight even got in a bit early. Upon arrival in Fargo, the weather was getting progressively worse. On Sunday we woke up to a full fledged blizzard, and the city was mostly shut down. On Monday, after many attempts of starting any snowblower (Joe had even attempted using two of the neighbor’s), we finally got the driveway cleaned out so we could make our way to work. It is incredibly cold here, and the weathermen say that we have at least a few more days in the icebox.

Nothing new

Well, Joe and I made it back to Fargo without any incident after getting our car fixed. We then spent the next day and a half putting up furniture (me) and running wires through our walls (Joe). I didn’t get a picture but, my darling husband drilled a hole through the ceiling in our hallway by accident. He was six feet away from where he meant to drill the hole. :p By the time I thought to get a picture the next morning he had already patched it up and you can no longer tell what happened.

It took all weekend but we managed to get our house back together. On Tuesday I was a happy little bell ringer for the Salvation Army. My company volunteers it’s employees to be bell ringers (it is completely voluntary for us as well), it is great to be a part of something that gives back so much. (again no pictures of that, I forgot my camera at work).

Joe left for California on Wednesday morning leaving me all alone again. So currently I am sitting here in 4° weather and he is in 70° weather. I am thinking the next time he travels somewhere warm for work, I join him. :p

We’ve made it

At 1:30 p.m. our car was repaired and we hit the road once more.  Despite all of the problems we have made it to Minneapolis in one piece and in good spirits.
