Wow! Crazy storm, strong winds, huge drifts, possible flooding for those by lake Michigan! Definitely a storm to remember. Everything is closed... Everything! It took Cory and Scotty all day to plow our driveway and Scotty's. Also, Cory managed to get the snowmobile stuck in our yard twice! The first time Cory and Scotty pulled it out by hand... the second time Scotty used the snow blower to make a path across our front yard to the snowmobile.
Here is what we saw when we looked out or bedroom door on Wednesday morning.
When Ethan saw this he said "HOLY MACARONI TRAINS"... lol you said it little man!
This is one of my favorite pictures.
It was taken from our kitchen door looking towards our bedroom door.
The snow drifts in front of the garage doors.
Look, we almost have an in-ground pool!
Ethan was helping daddy!
Can't even see the stairs leading up to the deck.
Scotty snow blowing a path across our front yard to get to the buried snowmobile.

Schools are still closed. Many people were unable to dig themselves out, places have not been plowed, and the roads are still very messy. We did venture out in the weather today though... it was the big ultrasound day!! I also went to the salon to get my hair trimmed, then took the kids to a couple stores to get new snow gear for Mariah's field trip, and to Best Buy to get Mariah a new cell phone. It was so nice having two snow days off in a row with the kids!

Back in business! Schools and businesses are open, streets are pretty much cleared, but plenty of cars are still in the ditches. The report on the news this morning was that schools are open, but are optional. If you are unable to send your child they will be excused. Many people are still plowed in, some roads are single lanes, so much to still clean up.
I got to work this morning and looked out my window and here is what I saw...
