It’s January in Chicago and Guess who’s getting SNOW!! That’s right, people, it’s snowing! Not just a little flake here and there. It’s coming down in buckets. Loads of it. Really… it’s like a blizzard.
Hubs likes a nice, clean, snow free driveway. Here he is battling the snow. I think he is making progress!
He worked for hours on that bugger. It’s Sunday. And beside the fact that he is determined to keep his driveway flake-free – he is headstrong to make it to church.
Here he is making his way through the frozen tundra. “Onward Christian Soldiersssssss!!!”
Oopsieee….. The lovely winter-esque conditions proved to be too much for him. Back in 5 minutes….
My sweet son, BruceRobt, is working the Customer Service desk at O’Hare International Airport today!! There are a lot of disgruntled, stranded passengers there. In fact, they’ve been there for days trying to make their way to their destinations. The airport is basically shutdown. He has been tossed into the Lion’s Den. Calm Down People!!
What’s so lovely about the sun and warmth when you can be experiencing a lovely winter!!
Brian, my youngest son – Also very sweet, with a lot of independence and adventure running through his blood – has been trying for days to get to back to school. He is studying in California this term. It’s been very exciting around here the last couple of days!! Flights booked, flights cancelled. Packing and unpacking. And then repacking, again. Brian’s Bro, BruceRobt – (the one fighting off the angry, irate customers at O’Hare)…phoned and told Brian to pack a carry-on only. There will be no guarantees that luggage will get to their final destinations. Not with these wicked conditions controlling our every move!! Ok! I think we have this covered. We just need to fit all of this….
into a small-ish bag. On it!
All in all… I think it is going to be a lovely wintery week!
Oh, I know, on the outside I am cool as a cucumber. Patient and serene and grateful for The Beauty that IS WINTER. But inside, I feel a bit like this…
