So, we thought Iowa had a lot of snow. Then we came home Wednesday afternoon to a winter wonderland. Our driveway had 8+ inches of snow layered with ice underneath that Justin thought he could plunge through. He only got the mighty Escape stuck in the middle of the driveway. Ha! It was pretty stinkin' hilarious! We then shoveled the Escape out, and I went off to Home Depot for salt and another shovel. After an hour and a half we had the driveway cleared and salted. We make a good team:) The pictures are of the front and back yard. We have a great hill in our backyard that we are contemplating making into a snow luge for some raw sledding adventures. With two more days of winter vacay, this may become a reality! Wahoo!
In other Nickel news, we had a classic Christmas and a rockin' New Year. Last night we rang in the New Year with our Scovill friends. We ate a great meal at Barley's Brewhause, listened to some live music, and then came back to our place for the annual Dick Clark extravaganza. I must commend Ryan Seacrest as it would be no easy feat to replace Dick Clark. It was kind of sad to see Dick in his later years; however, I am amazed at how good looking and tan he still remains. Regardless of my ramblings, it was a great time! Happy New Year to you all!
