Under Snow Arrest!!


Unless you are living under a rock you know that ALL of Oklahoma was hit with the worst Blizzard in years. So i'm not going to bore you and tell you about! :)





I enjoyed Tuesday staying home with Michael, we caught up on our DVR'd shows and watched the snow fall and tried to get gizmo out to play in it!


Wednesday mid morning all the neighbors got out and had a driveway shoveling party! That evening work was cancelled (no surprise) so we went to Kellen and Lindsey's and played games!


Thursday, I was getting little stir crazy. By this point church had been cancelled for Sunday (so any hope of me leaving soon was out the window!) and I knew I was going to be in this house for the next 3 days at least!!


Friday morning I'm on FB and I see everyone's status about "Really, more snow?" "No more snow!" "Hey, the North called and they want you back!" So I look outside and guess what? IT'S FREAKING SNOWING AGAIN!!! We turn the news on and they say 2''-4'' and more snow on Sunday and Wednesday! Don't get frustrated Heather, it's just snow. Be thankful that you have plenty of food, electricity, a warm home and water. Well that mind set didn't last but a few hours. I had hit my breaking point. I had a cabin fever breakdown. I cried. The ugly cry. I'm sure the hormones had something to do with it, but I just couldn't fathom spending another 3 days in this house with the possibility of more snow. Poor Michael, he didn't know what to do, he told me to call my mom. So I did! I felt better after I talked to her. It just felt good to cry!

This morning my WONDERFUL husband got up (played a few rounds of his video game) and the shoveled the end of the driveway/street so we could make a path to get our cars out come Monday. **Sidenote: we live on the curve of a turn and the bubbled our street out so no one was driving close to our driveway. So there was 3 feet of snow at the end of our driveway. The non 4WD 4-Runner and Jetta weren't going to make it out of our driveway.** Luckily we have FANTASTIC neighbors and Kellen came out to help pack the snow down and make a path for us to get out. Once Michael got the 4-Runner out the driveway and ventured down the street he came inside and said "Get dressed we are going out!" I asked where we were going and he said "Anywhere! I need to get you out of this house!!" So we ventured to GNC and then to lunch. I was so excited to just get out and see other humans!

Needless to say I have a better out look on the next few days! Thanks Hubby! You're the best!!!

I leave you with a video of Gizmo "playing" in the snow!
