We had so many friends across the city, stranded in their offices, on the road, or in other friends' homes. Whitney and her girls had to stay in a hotel after getting stuck on the way home from a doctor's appointment! There were a lot of prayers yesterday, and so many Good Samaritans who stepped up and filled the needs of those who were stranded or looking for a ride home. A couple of friends from church even made it on the news for handing out free hot chocolate to stranded drivers!
I think my favorite "feel good" part of yesterday was being on a group text with a bunch of my girlfriends, all checking in with each other and asking about husbands, other friends, and offering help and prayers. I loved the roll call at the end of the night when we knew everyone was spoken for and had found a warm spot to spend the night.
A great silver lining of the snow was that Steve gets to stay home from work today and tomorrow! We may actually even get off the couch and get some projects done around the house!
French toast for breakfast! I put Bella's hair in a bun so that it wouldn't get all sticky with syrup, so Evelyn wanted hers up, too.
Steve had to participate in a conference call, and Evelyn got in on the action!
We dragged a mattress downstairs for the girls to crash on and watch cartoons! Lots of fun!
My Little Pony is a popular choice around here! We snacked on ramen noodles, Kraft macaroni and cheese, cookies, and drinks. Definitely not the healthiest, but it was the only thing Rite-Aid had and tasted delicious for our snow day!
So thankful that God protected all of our friends and so many others! And as anxious as I was for Steve to get home last night, his five-hour commute ended up being the quickest of anyone we know!
