Snowed In

You would think living in the "city" we wouldn't be snowed in. Boy was I wrong. Living in the last culdesac, right next to an empty field did us in when the wind came whipping around last night. We have 3 foot drifts in front of our driveway. The good ol' city of Rigby's snow plow came this morning and couldn't hack it. Their idea of a snow plow is a 1965 International dump truck. Pretty good for hauling dirt but tackling snow drifts, not so good. Right now the county front loader is digging us out. Here are some pictures of our drifts.

There are good things to being snowed in. We were able to take Owen outside for just a little bit and take him for his first sled ride. 

See our arbor back there? Check out the 5 foot snow drift around it. Well, it was Barry who said it didn't feel like Christmas without the snow. So I hope he is happy! Hehe. Nah, I like the snow too as long as I don't have to drive on it. He's right though, it wouldn't feel like Christmas without it being a white one.
