God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Uh-Oh ... LOL!!!

The snow we received yesterday appeared to be powdery, so John decided to drive through what turned out to be at least 12" in order to get to the post office.  He backed the SUV up a few feet, & you guessed it ... got stuck!

Of course we aren't prepared for any of this! We never had the need to buy a snow shovel.  That's a garden spade that John is using to try to dig around the wheels in order to just get the car back to where it had been parked prior to the snowfall.  It took a while but he was successful in doing that.  I called our mower guy & the guy who smooths out our driveway now & then & left messages to see if either of them could plow or knew of someone who could.  The temps are going to be cold-cold-cold over the next few days & we're even supposed to get a bit more snow, so it's not likely that any meltage is going to be occurring anytime soon.  That's okay though.  We have electricity & plenty of food, so we'll be fine until someone can plow us out.  

What a happy adventure!

I admire your good attitude! I would be irritated, which is why I live in Phoenix☺

Vickie said...

Oh goodness! I am so glad we have our three kids living at home still to help Brian out with snow removal.
What a beautifully bright day by you.

We have loads of thick ICE on top of snow... not going anywhere! But other than the urge to go stir crazy, I have food and such to last till Saturday (which is when they say it MAY go above freezing!!!) Stay in.. take pictures!

Hope you've found someone to help clear the driveway.

Good to know you have electricity and plenty of food, so you can just relax and enjoy the calmness of a snowy landscape
Stay warm and take care!

Enjoy your snow but stay safe.

The snow looks wonderful from this side of the screen, not sure I would be so happy with it if I was having to live with it. Beautifuil spring sunshine here today... and lovely it is too.

Wow! Keep warm and cosy. X

Somehow I missed this post! I am sorry that John got stuck, but happy to hear that he was able to get the SUV back to where he started.

Hopefully, the mower guy or the other guy will return your call soon!

I say hunker down and stitch!
