Pre-birthday party for (son) Alex! Almost 23...
The wind and snow was blowing for most of the day yesterday, so when John tried to come home (from driving a train) at 9pm, he could get to our road again, but not to our house (about half a mile from the highway)! So he had to spend another night in a Webster City motel due to the icy roads and drifts on our road. We took the interstate (I35) to Des Moines (Sunday) and saw about 20 vehicles in the ditch, some on their tops, from Saturday's wretched roads.
Here's the crowd getting settled in at Grandma Markey's to watch Alex open his presents! From left: Grandma M, Uncle Charlie (her brother), John, Izaac, Michelle Z, and Shirley (my sister).
