Snowy Daze

Precious and Little Fire Faery were invited to a sleepover. A snowstorm was predicted with an appreciable accumulation forecast. We decided not to believe the reports and allowed them to stay all night at their friend's house.

It was probably not the wisest of moves on our part, as the snowstorm happened - pretty much as predicted - and the drive out to pick them up from the party was a bit harrowing. We were nearly sideswiped by a huge municipal plow (Dude! Seriously! We get it - just doing your job, and frankly, I would have stayed home had I not had to get my daughters, but can't you share the road - a little?), and then, a guy who failed to yield nearly caused us to spin off the road in the traffic circle.

I am very happy to be home, safe, where we can watch the snow from the warmth and security of our little suburban home.


  1. So glad you hear you made it back safe and sound. I'm sure the girls had a wonderful time, but are happy to be back snug as bugs in their home

  2. Thanks, Angela. They did have a good time, and so I'm glad that we let them go, but it was a little nerve-wracking driving out there to get them. What should have taken a half hour took two hours!
