I should have known it was going to be a short haul when he offered to go out in the middle of the night to get me some Robutussin for my sore throat at 12 midnight. By then there was about 3 inches of snow out.
We slept in until about 11 a.m., had a big breakfast, and as soon as we sat down to watch TV, CCD looked at me and said "Want to head over to your parents' house now?!" I was all, "huh?!" And he was like, "C'mon it'll be an adventure!" And I retorted, "An adventure with a baby?"
Needless to say, I gave in
Did I mention the Governor of our state declared a STATE OF EMERGENCY?!
The baby was her usual sleeping-angel self in the car. Like her wizard hat? hehe
Provisions in my new ThirtyOne utility bag. I like it!
I insisted that we bring a snow shovel in case we got stuck in the 10-12 inches that had already accumulated. Mr. Invincible New England Boy - aka Charm City Daddy protested, but I won using the baby argument. I'm glad I did! The plows had hardly been out, and we saw two abandon cars and stopped and helped a stuck emergency worker who was on his way to the airport. Even the road leading into the airport was terrible. Buckley, our black lab, even helped out.... I took pics from the warm, dry car....
We didn't need the shovel, but I'm glad we had it to help this guy out.
So now we're in Severn...snowed in. And I have to go now, as CCD is harassing me about what we're going to eat. Off to fry to chicken...
