Home Sweet Home

We made it home yesterday afternoon after four full days at my parents' house (thanks, Mom and Dad!). Jay was a little nervous about driving his brand new car (Kia Sorento) with his pregnant wife and child inside through the ice and snow. Honestly, the roads were still pretty bad. We saw a line of cars trying to get up a hill on a major road with their wheels spinning fruitlessly. Yikes! But we made it home without incident. Our ridiculously nice neighbors had already hacked a path for us from the street to our front door because our driveway and yard is a solid block of ice. They also made a little place for us to park at the bottom of the driveway. We are very lucky to have such generous neighbors, and I'm not sure how I would have gotten my pregnant self up to the house without their handiwork.
Ice is hard for a toddler to play in, but we did play "throw ice chunks on the ice sheet" for a few minutes today. It was something like what I imagine curling to be.
Jay ended up with the entire week off school. He has deemed this weather event "Snowpocalypse 2011" and theorizes that this will be the only time he gets an entire week off for weather in his entire teaching career. Probably a reasonable theory. Now we just have to see when he has to make days up...
