Holy Snow!!!

I can't believe all this snow!!! Eric and I were driving down to Provo this morning and at the north end of Provo Canyon there were barricades and a sign saying the canyon was closed. I'm not so sure why neither of us thought to call the road condition hot line before we left home. So for the second time this winter we had to turn around and drive back home. I didn't mind, that just meant that I got to go into work later :) I'm thinking it was closed for avalanche control (since that is what it was closed for last week.)

Bless Eric, he spends so much of his time snowblowing. I absolutely love our home and the mounds and mounds of snow we have, but I feel bad every time that Eric has to go out and snow blow, I know he'll be out in the cold for quite a while. Oh, and I tried the snowblower once and let me tell you, it takes a lot of strength.



We hit a deer, or rather a deer hit us a couple of weeks ago. As nice as it is to have Eric's Pathfinder looking shiny and new, due to a whole new front end and a paint job, we are experiencing the difficulties that always come with getting in some kind of wreck - the after effects. It doesn't seem like everything that needs to get fixed gets fixed right the first time. Saturday night, after going out to dinner and enjoying a couple of exciting games of bowling in the local Heber bowling alley (gotta check it out) we were on our way back up to our house when I noticed that the heater was blowing freezing cold air. This is atypical for Eric's car, the heater heats up quick. Eric knew right away what the problem was, dang radiator. Needless to say, the car is back in the shop. Blah!

Yay for your new blog! I'm going to link to yours on ours (alisonandethansnyder.blogspot.com)
And I've wondered how it's been for you with your cute new house all secluded in the mountains - it definitely would seem a challenge for me to deal with all that snow all the time.

I know it, the time seriously goes by so fast when you are married. I'm in the same boat, I totally want to do something nice for our first v-day married. I'm going to engrave both our rings. Then I'm going to surprise him and go to a hockey game, and dinner at the melting pot. Its not all that creative, but I think it will be fun:S.. if you have any other idea's I'm all ears:)
