Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow

Justin's favorite song in his favorite Christmas movie, White Christmas, goes something like . . . "Snow, snow, snow, snow"--all very nicely harmonized mind you. Well, those lyrics indeed describe our trip home today from Roanoke. However, had you heard us singing it would have sounded more like "Snow, &!$% snow, snow, @#$&@!" The usual 3.5 hour trip took us 6.5 hours, and the large majority of that felt like we were driving an all-terrain vehicle. After all the money my folks have paid UVA, you would think Albemarle County could afford to hire some snow removal personnel. Apparently not!

At least some of the sights were beautiful.

This one, not so much.

Eventually, we just let Maggie Mae drive.

Then, Jus came home to 20 inches of untouched snow in our driveway to shovel. Acutally, as I'm toasty inside witing this blog . . . he's still out there doing so. I'll make him some hot chocolate, don't you worry!
