Last week was a very crazy, snowy week. Here is an overview:
Monday, February 1 : work day canceled
Tuesday, February 2: school canceled
Wednesday, February 3: school canceled
Thursday, February 4: school’s on
Friday, February 5: They were calling for “Snowmaggedon,” “Snowpocolypse,” or “The Worst Storm of the Century.” We were already planning a trip to C’ville to see Kathleen (Tim’s sister) before she left for Argentina for 5 months, but we got a bit worried with the storm. We were supposed to get snow in the Richmond area, but not the 1-2 feet in Charlottesville. When we finally got the call that school was canceled at 5:40 on Friday, we hopped in the car and hit the road. We didn’t want to miss Kathleen, and we certainly didn’t want to miss this snowstorm!
We left at 7:45. It started snowing at about 8:15, and we got to the Doyles’ house at about 8:50. Not too bad! It only slowed us down by about 5 minutes. The snow didn’t stop until Saturday night, and I think we got between 1 1/2 to 2 feet. It’s amazing!
We finally went out in the snow on Saturday with Kathleen, Josh, Kevin and Lauryn (they surprised us by getting here earlier today). We had a ton of fun:
My guess is that it will still be there in April.
