Yup, we got more snow. And more (lots and lots more) is coming this weekend.

I got off work at 11:30 last night, drove through the snow, got all the way up the driveway (barely) and then had a birdbrained idea.

I decided that if I backed into the circle in front of the house, then I would have a straight shot out today. I don't back up very straight on a good day and visibility was poor because of the snow coming down and the fact that we don't have streetlights out here in the sticks. I backed right onto the side yard and got stuck.

My sweet son came out and pushed and shoved to no avail. All we did is run down the hybrid battery on my car. So we left it. I figured that there would be no school today and my husband (the teacher) and son could help me get the car out today.

Surprise, when I got up Old Man Teacher had already left. Bummer, and I had to go to work early for a meeting. Sonny Boy got out the shovel and then gave me a push and...... success!! I got to work early as planned, and the meeting was cancelled. Bleh.
By the way, check the statistics for the Baltimore area. We get almost all of our giant blizzards during my birthday week. That's right, 1st and 2nd weeks of February!! It's a good thing I am a homebody at heart. Now, where are my mittens?
