There is snow-everywhere!

OK, it is 12:53 as in midnight. we just got home from having to DIG my jeep out of the church parking lot. Ben and I were at Mark and Cindy's tonight (I had to meet Ben at the church because Ben went to video tape church and I stayed at home with Kobe cause he has a cold so my car got left at the church and we rode in ben's car from church to my parent's house, back to mark and cindy's) so there is all this snow and the wind in making HUGE drifts-so high Ben's 4 wheel drive 4 runner gets stuck in a giant one when we try to pull out of their drive way.
so, ben and mark work and work and work and finally get the car unstuck. then i mention that my car is still over at the church and Mark says "your not going to be able to get it-people were having a hard time getting out way earlier today even"
so ben and i pull into the church drive way and see there is no way for us to get in to get my car or for my car to get out. It is 9 pm at that time.
so we called my bro in law dave who has a snow plow on his truck to see if he will plow a path out to the road so we can get my car-he says sure and comes to help us. they get about half way done plowing a path from the road to the parking lot and his truck starts giving him problems and the snow plow lift is draining the battery because it is going bad and it can't lift the snow plow. AFTER an hour (at least) of Ben and Dave working outside in 9 degree weather to switch out dave's battery with another one a kind hearted person with a plow on the front of their truck stops and plows the drive way the rest of the way, ben and dave get dave's car in good enough condition to drive it home and did I mention the whole time Kobe and I are sitting out in ben's car watching this?

what started at 9:30 pm ended at 12:30 am and i cannot tell you how glad I am to be home!!!

That was a interesting night! We were woke up to a person stuck in our driveway again. You would think she would have NOTICED the huge SNOWDRIFT in front of her, but oh nooooooooo.
We love you and you really didn't have to stay in the car allll that time. ;)
LOve you bunches,
Just another exciting time in the country.

lol, it would have drove me nuts to wonder what those boys were doing out side all that time, I am so nosey I had to stay in the car! It was at least nice to know that even after everything was said and done if all the cars were stuck we could come over!
it was just horrendous out there, how is the church driveway today...& yours?

thanks for everything last night-ben said the roads were awful this morning, a sheet of ice!

I'm really starting to hate this winter. You sound like you had so much fun LOL

Alyssa said...

Wow! That is just horrible if you ask me:). Not fun! I do forget that craziness now that we live here until you guys remind us:). Glad everyone is okay, and it is just cars getting stuck though.

Oh, boy, here we come to the freezing cold...........YIKES! Pray for us to not hit a bunch of bad roads.

Can't wait to see you guys soon:)

Is that video done on your computer now? Very cool!

Ben said...

Actually the temp was about 3-4 not 9...that's a big diff! :) Winter Wonder Land!!!

Leah Wentzel said...

I do hate winter but soon I will be out of it. Not that I am trying to rub it in. lol. I bet Ben was frozen just going out to the car at Vicki's I was so cold. My neighbor plowed me out today but I could get in and out of my driveway with out a problem. Hopefully the weather will be good Christmas Eve.
