Let it snow, let it snow...
Mother Nature decided she wanted to give us an early Christmas gift tonight and is sending in the snow...and I'm not talking a little, but a lot.
The local weatherman predicted we'll get between 16 and 24 inches of snow in the next 24 hours... a scary amount for a Georgia girl who thinks seeing a dusting is a big deal!
Pat, who has to work on Saturday, is staying at a motel room near his office so that he doesn't have to travel in snow tomorrow. It was my idea and his boss said the company would pay for it so they could be certain he would be able to work... he's even called in one of the employees and told him to take off so he could get his furlough day in this week!
Pat thanked me tonight because he realized getting home would have taken hours and getting into the office tomorrow would probably have been impossible. Although I miss having him here tonight and playing with the children tomorrow, I don't have to worry about him being on the roads while people are trying to get home.
I promise to dress up the kids and let them get out in the snow tomorrow for a few pictures (and maybe even sneak out in the early morning and get a few pictures from our front door.
I know it will be beautiful, but it certainly means we'll be stuck up on the hill for a few days and won't be able to see family before the holidays.
