Blooie - But life is often that way - unpredictable. Sounds like you have a wonderful family and are very close. I always believe in having a back-up in place for those unexpected occasions - what if you got snowed in on the other side of the mountain? Got injured? Became really ill? Obviously no one plans on those things happening, but we can plan FOR those things in case they happen.
It also helps with the stress level when the unexpected happens.
Beautiful eggs Rachel!
