Updates from the Homestead
Well the last snow pictures I showed you were just the beginning of this storm! LOL.. well maybe not really.. but pretty close! We got a break from the snow for a few hours but it is back again. I will share some updated pics in this post.
My hubby was finally able to come home on Monday night! Yea!! I kept watching the DOT website waiting to see when the highway would be open and finally about Jacob refreshed the webpage and came to me saying.. Mom I think it’s open now. So I checked and sure enough. I called Tobin’s cell and told him the good news and he was so happy. He had worked Saturday night as usual, slept at work in a chair for a few hours and worked another shift on Sunday plus overtime. By Monday morning the highway was still closed. His company paid for a hotel room for him so he could get some sleep which was a real blessing. But by Monday evening things were open again and he could come home.
On Tuesday he cleared the driveway and by afternoon we were able to get to town and pick up groceries and then we were going to pick up my son. But his plane had mechanical difficulties and was delayed 4 hours. So we headed home, unpacked groceries and went back to town to pick him up at . We were so thrilled to see him!! It has been a year and half since he has been home. He arrived home to see all the yellow balloons greeting him from the fence posts and tied to trees lining the driveway and the back porch. We had pizza and talked till nearly .. needless to say we all slept in this morning!
We also woke up to MORE snow and it has been snowing ever since. Tobin redid the driveway and then dug our neighbor out of his drive way too. Tobin says if it does not stop snowing pretty soon there will be no place to put all this snow after cleans up!
Well now for pics.. remember the picnic table? Well if you look carefully you may just be able to see it now.. that is my deck almost completely full of snow..
Here are a few more shots from around my property..
