We had planned on driving to Des Moines (60 miles south) to eat my mom's veggie soup, see Izaac and Samantha, etc... but John decided he'd drive to town (4 miles) and see what the roads were like (mid-morning). So he did, and called the trip off before he got to town.
It snowed (again) last night, and the ice didn't get completely melted yesterday and the snowplow hadn't even been on the Highway, yet, so the safest thing to do was STAY HOME.
Above is a picture of the furry kids yesterday trying to decide if they could stand to walk in the fluffy snow.
Below is a 35-second video of Ron making a path on the patio in the snow.
