Winter is finally here!

Well, it's been teasing us off and on for the past month or so, but last night winter finally hit us... hard. The snow began to fall off and on starting around 8:00 pm or so and along with it was some serious winds. by the time Juli and I went to bed, we weren't sure if we should go hang out in the basement or not in case it was a tornado. Luckily for us it wasn't and by the time the morning arrived, we had a nice thick layer of snow on everything.

Driving to work was interesting, but luckily the roads were just wet and didn't have any snow on them so they weren't slippery. I'm not sure if it's supposed to snow any more or not, but for now, it's sure pretty outside. :-)

I don't know if the first blog came through. This is all new to me. Sorry to see the Z go, but a 4x4 is a lot better for the snow. It sounds like it will keep up for some time to come. I bet you could use some of that SoCal sunshine(I could) right now. It's good to hear that you're doing so well. Moving like that is such a big thing. We've had a couple inches of snow in Az. and lots of mud on our newly graded road. The big Ford did fine, if you don't mind driving sideways for 1/2 a mile. Was 18 degrees this morning and everything was froze. Good to hear all is well. Love ya a bunch,Dad.
