Holy Crow! That's A Lot Of SNOW!

It finally has happened - Charlotte got dumped with a ton of snow last night!!  Unfortunately for us, the evening ended with a car accident.  Steven and I went out to grab a couple necessities before the roads got too bad. In the span of 45 minutes the roads got really, really bad.  On the way home we saw a van stranded in a ditch.  There was a woman with two small children inside and Steven decided to pull over to help pull them out.  We were well off the side of the road and as he opened the driver side door to get out of the car, a driver on the road lost control and side swiped him.  Thank the Lord that he was able to jump back in the car and avoid being hit - not so thankfully his door is completely messed up.  It won't close!!  But again - thank God no one was truly hurt.  Now let's see how this insurance thing plays out and if her insurance company will pay for the damages.

Just trying to do a good deed - Poor Yukon

But we have decided not to let this little accident ruin our Valentine's Day weekend.  My puppies absolutely love the snow.  They have stayed outside all morning long prancing and playing.  They LOVE it! So here is a little photo shoot of the beautiful snow we received here.  :)
That's 6 Inches!
Steven left me a message in the snow!

Wowzer, can I come over and play in that? As I'm typing it's about 70 degrees and supposed to get in the high 70's to low 80's. That looks like fun.

Glad you posted pictures of the puppies for me. Hate that about the SUV. It's melting away now, so normal will return soon.

Oh my goodness, this is weird to find someone else in Waxhaw! I lived there for my whole life and just moved to Charlotte right after we got married in December.

I'm glad you both are okay! How scary!
