This was Ben's drive on the way to buy a snowblower. I think we it had been snowing for about 6 hours at this point. It was a very wet and heavy snow.
Sweet Nolan got up the next morning since school was cancelled to check the totals. He was VERY excited about no school. He had missed the Friday before because Allyn had a stomach virus and he said he wasn't feeling well too (turns out he was just fine). And then he missed Monday because of the snow. Ben was lucky enough that he was able to work from home. We spent most of the day inside playing the basement and staying warm.
And then on Tuesday, it snowed again. Unfortunately this time Allyn and I were stuck near Chicago close to rush hour at a doctor's appointment that was running really late (like 3 hours late). And then a commute home that should have taken 45 minutes took 2 hours. And she cried almost the entire way home. Me + Driving In Snow + Rush Hour + Crying Little Girl = MAJOR STRESS.
