    From what I hear, a big storm is coming tonight. So that means we will most likely be snowed in tomorrow. When you are snowed in what do you do for fun?
    My kids and I will be home alone because hubby will stay at work overnight due to the storm.

    We will be playing games, writing out Christmas cards, and doing some holiday baking.

    I read your post and started thinking. What would I do.... Call the police, and start freaking out lol. Mind you I live Australia where it never snows so I would be having a heart attack if it snowed here lol. Could not imagine what it would be like to have that happen.

    Hey, I am in the same boat: Dh has the worst of both worlds - he's laid off as of Jan 22 and still got snowed in and ordered to stay until MONDAY!

    Ugh! I live waaaaaay up ona hill and even with the tractor there is no getting out.

    But, we're good, got wood, can cook in my bake over, got a generator for when the power inevitably goes out, but dang I sure do wish I had the husband!

    We're at 18 inches!

    I have WHAT in my yard, I am sorry to hear about your husbands job. I hope he finds another one quickly. That does stink having to stay over somewhere that is letting you go.
    By the way, the snow hasn't even started here yet. It's times like this that I wish I was rich and could winter somewhere warm.

    Here it pours and floods for a day or so. I break out the gardening books and seed catalogs and graph paper.

    I was about to say I've never been snowed in in my entire life, but I remember once we were "iced" in. We used to live at the top of a hill in house with a long, curved cement driveway. An ice storm put about an inch of ice on it! Needless to say we were stuck for several days. I'd hate to be in that situation without a fireplace or wood stove. We were without power for a while and did not have a generator. I really don't think it would change my routine too much, I'd still walk the dogs, do housework or whatever, as long as I had power.
