Blizzard of ’09

December 20, 2009

You probably know that we have been blanketed by snow here on the east coast. The nearby city is practically shut down but out here in the country we just broke out our redneck boots and 4×4 trucks.

The view out of our back door...

There was fair warning the snow was coming. We knew we were going to be snowed in. I packed a book – several days of clothes – bath bubbles and headed for his house.

Yesterday I made stew that spent the day simmering. I soaked in the tub while he napped on the couch. We watched a movie together. I read my book while he played video games. We settled easily into comfortable silence….

18 inches are no match for the redneck boots!

Curled up with a good book, beside the man I cannot imagine life without. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

  1. Oh I’m jealous! We got one inch a couple weeks ago and Shiloh wanted to play in it but as soon as she stepped somewhere, the snow melted. Maybe for Christmas…
