More Snow

I am mad at Wyoming.

We were supposed to go to Wal-Mart today. And Circuit City. And get some lunch at Perkins.

However. We were dumped with snow again.

When I woke up Tom was all, "Bad news. I-25 is closed.."

I-25 is what we have to travel on to get to Wal-Mart and those other areas.

Then I peeked outside and saw the new snow. I slammed the door shut and shouted, "I am MAD at Wyoming."

Tom thought this was hilarious. "You can't be mad at a State."

"I can and I am!" I snapped.

Three people have already gotten stuck in the snow. Each time Tom has gone out to help them.

He really is a good guy. He'll be watching TV and announce, "Oh no, someone else is stuck again," and then he'll put on his gloves and hat and run out and help. Because that's just the kind of man he is.

I love him.

However, the people who got stuck didn't get far. As soon as they were dug out and tried to go down the street they were met by a huge snow pile. So they had to turn around and return home.

So yes, we're stuck.

This time we can get out of the driveway but not down the street. Both ways are blocked with a huge pile of snow. On one side a person is stuck so that completely blocks the exit.

The plows?


We called about that.

They're short-staffed and we're low priority. Because we're only base housing.

I just hate being trapped in the house like this. Especially when I was all ready to shop.

Plus, thanks to The Travel Channel, I now am craving donuts. They had an entire hour long program on the history of donuts and I must have one.

Tommy is all, "I want to go to Wal-Mart."

Me too, kid, me too.

The good news is that we should be finished with the snow. It's just the digging out part that might take awhile because remember, there was still snow left over from the last time we were dumped.

Maybe we'll get out tomorrow.
