SNOWY day here again!!!

Wow, I can't even believe it myself.  This is the most snow I have seen here in our 7 years we have been here.  It is amazing!!!  Today we were forecasted to receive about .5-1 inch of snow and we received over 5 inches at least.  It began snowing around 9am, and didn't stop until after dark!!!  

This is my truck sitting in the lonely parking lot at work.  It was a DONSA (Day of No Scheduled Activity) for the Super Bowl the day before.  SO the parking lot is empty compared to normal!

As you can see it got really lonely in the parking lot at work.  Well from the office I went on to the Hangar for another Goodbye ceremony.  Made for just a little trickier day for our families as they brought their Soldier to the Hangar to deploy.  Weather definitely worked with the mood of the day for them though. 

I am proud to say that looking at the airfield in the photo above, that our guys were still able to get the flight off as scheduled.  Pretty good for a southern state like ours.  This was one of many buses taking the Soldiers to the flight.

Driving was even a little tricky today.  Roads were slushy, so not too bad!!!

Pretty out though!  You have to admit!!!

I came home and seeing that the sidewalks were covered, and fearful for Andy to slip and slide by tomorrow, Alex and I did a little shoveling!  Go Alex, what a huge help he was.  Between shoveling and a little ice melt (thanks to my honey who bought me a new bag of Ice Melt before he deployed, just in case!!!) our sidewalks were nice and clear this morning.  Sure helps to not fall when going to start a very cold car.

We ended our SNOWY day with a power outage, which is always fun when the outside temp is 28 degrees.  Good news is it only lasted about 3-4 hours.  It was fun to watch my techy kids find things to do without electricity, and NO internet.  Of course, Mom still had her iPhone, which I found could charge off of my laptop power!  So, Bahahahaha....I was OK.  (Yes, I am a very techy Mom, too!!!)  Looking forward to tomorrow, as the forecast says another 2-4 inches possible.  What a winter!!!
