Treacherous Morning

I had been thinking about knowledge and forgetting all day yesterday so I had to post that. But the big news this morning is that the Incredible Snowstorm has turned to rain. The snow is now wet and heavy. And Bob's car, his baby, his darling WRX, is now stranded on it's belly on a pile of snow left by the passing snowplow at the foot of our driveway. And now the rain has turned to snow and it is freezing.

We didn't plow our driveway because we both have good four wheel drive, and frankly, we were just lazy.

The good news is that Adam is home from school and his best friend Jason is on leave from the Marines. They are at a friends where they spent the night, but they are on their way home to rescue Bob.

More bad news? I have a house full of boys and only four eggs.

Good news? Bob has decided to call off work.

So it's a two post morning!

I know it is comforting to you that Adam is home. Levin Jr. came in from Baltimore Tuesday night. I remember being relieved when he said he was flying home for Christmas when he told us back at Thanksgiving.

It is nice to have him home, and since his friend Jason practically grew up here, nice to have Jason home as well. They dug Bob out and then I fed them all oatmeal and hot chocolate.

Oatmeal and hot chocolate is the perfect reward/antidote to slaving in snow. Well done!

I am seeing that the only thing more expensive than having children away at college is having them come home for winter break.

But surely you can take out four of them if you throw from point blank range?
