So you might be aware that a major storm rolled through the Midwest this past weekend.
We certainly got our share. All day Friday, all we saw was this:
Take a bush that's right outside our front door.
9 am: No snow. Greenish grass behind it.
Friday night: Normal
Saturday Morning: Shoveling our driveway for an HOUR. Wet, heavy snow a foot deep on a small driveway will apparently take two adults working for 60 minutes each to clear it.
Sunday Morning: Very, very sore.
And a tree in front of our house? See how high it stands - somewhere between the top window and the bottom window?
Well, this is what it currently looks like:
Thank goodness I never liked that tree. I don't know if it will ever recover.
And then there was the issue with the car. We drove to a restaurant to have brunch with friends. No problems. We drove to their house to borrow a tack gun (to use on our kitchen project). No problems. We were leaving their neighborhood, driving on a busy street to head back home, and we stopped at a stop sign. And this happened:
Let's just say it was the perfect weekend to stay inside and work on our kitchen!
