The Blizzard of 08

The Blizzard of 08. That's what they're calling it. The snow started falling Friday around 10am and didn't stop until Saturday around 6pm. My company along with many other companies closed their offices early Friday and the city was basically shutdown on Saturday. I truly didn't believe we'd get as much snow as they estimated. In fact we were supposed to be heading to Decatur 1st thing Saturday morning. Brian was supposed to be attending a bachelor party and I was going to spend the weekend with my in-laws. Our plans changed when I woke up Saturday morning, headed downstairs to let the pups out, and felt snow fall on my feet when I opened the backdoor. The snow was still falling pretty hard and when I turned on the TV I knew the only place we would be going is...well, nowhere. Brian came down and shoveled the pups a path so they could go to the bathroom. He then spent most of the day helping neighbors clear their driveways and the sidewalk around our cul-de-sac. The best part of the day was when we let the pups out front to play and enjoy the snow. They kept running around the cul-de-sac and up the shovel driveways. It was adorable. They then made a path across the street..jumping and running through the snow. It was the weekend we planned but it was a great weekend at home.
