Well, the good news is, Paul, Michael, and I are on our way home from Rochester at last! The bad news is, we’re stranded in Fargo because of a big snow storm that’s been raging across North Dakota for a few days now. The interstate is still closed between here and Bismarck.
Fortunately, Fargo is a great place to be stranded in, however, because we have family here. In fact, I don’t mind at all. We’re staying at my husband’s aunt’s house, and it feels like a spa! Check out my room:
And right now, I am sitting in a quaint sunroom:
But here’s a closer look at the snow out my window:
To really get an idea of the nasty weather, however, you must look at a few photos my husband sent of the other side of the state. Here’s my backyard:
Those of you in warmer climates, eat your hearts out! We’re committing a sacrilege and listening to Christmas music. According to my husband, there’s only one thing to do in October weather like this:
Go, grab a beer, and send the children outside to make snowmen.
P.S. For those of you who like wintery poetry, see THIS post. It is very fitting.
P.P.S. Paul is doing well. He is still having headaches, but they’re “small.” Hopefully we can get a few weeks at home before he gets worse again… Or maybe, they’ll just disappear all together. In the meantime, we’re hoping to be together again as a family sometime tomorrow, if the interstate opens up.
