The weather outside is frightful, deep snow, and -9 degress with a windchill of -19. It is a day to snuggle up by the fire with your Bible and Jesus and drink a cup of hot coffee. However, life goes on. So after a nice hot breakfast and a few birthday calls, you are outside in the frigid temperatures clearing the snow that fell again last night on top of the 32 inches from the previous storm. It's not what I would have ordered for your birthday, but you take it in stride.
(I stand corrected...37.3 inches of snow...
the longest, biggest snow storm on record since 1895!)
It gives your mom much joy to watch you through the window as you clear the snow.
She just can't believe how much snow we have or why you and the neighbor guys are out there in the cold. I remind her that you love her and I and you want to keep up safe so we won't slip.
It will be our turn to spoil you again later with lunch at Qdoba with a few others to join us at 1:oo today, and back home again for peppermint ice cream with homemade chocolate sauce.
Oh, there will be time for opening a package or two as well.
I want you to know dear
that I hatched a plan to clear the snow yesterday
but it didn't work out.
didn't want to go along with the plan!
Alas... the snow is still there.
Can you believe she didn't want to go along with my plan?? :)
Thanks so much for all you do to keep us safe and warm!
We love you!
Happy Birthday Brad!
