jon with tequila

Blizzard Part II

Pictures of the storm's aftermath: have a look

My parents will not get power restored at their home until the 12th. (!!)

Their worthless snow-removal service (they live in a neighborhood where their grounds are maintained for them, theoretically) never cleared their driveway, which had several feet of snow in it. Ray wound up clearing it, then he and Mom packed up some clothing and Tootsie (their kitty) and went looking for a hotel.

They had to go to FOUR different hotels in their area before they found one that would take them- and only if they could pay cash. I feel so bad.


This is why we don't live out in the boonies.
