What a crazy day it turned out to be! We woke up this morning to the snow literally coming down sideways. It was snowing and blowing so hard you could barely see anything outside! We have been officially hit with the "Blizzard of 2008". We were sent home from work early Friday due to the growing mess outside at 3pm and it hasn't stopped snowing since. Not only did we wake up to a lot of snow and wind, but also to our future neighbor's truck stuck in the middle of our street! Jeff went outside with a few shovels and attempted to dig them out. No such luck. After 30 minutes of trying to dig them out, Jeff and our neighbors treked their way back through the snow to our home totally defeated. Luckily I had a pot of coffee brewing so we sat at our kitchen table for two hours getting to know each other, drank coffee, and ate the occasional girl scout cookie. We really enjoyed their company. A family member finally came to pick them up. They were only able to drive to the top of our street to avoid getting stuck as well. We did notice at 7pm tonight they finally were able to get their truck out of the snow!!! The white blob in the middle of the second picture is our neighbors truck stuck in the snow at the top of our street. As far as the rest of our day went, it was completely boring. We are officially snowed in with no hope in sight. We are the only people living on our cul-de-sac and apparently the snow plows think no one lives down here because they have not even touched out street. We are not quite sure what to do at this point. Should we call the city? The builder? We are going to wait it out one more night. If we do not receive any help here soon, we may be working from home on Monday!!!
