Beginning Christmas Eve and continuing through Christmas Day we were in a blizzard. We had winds in the 30 MPH range and near white conditions. I've never seen anything like it here in Kansas. I'm sure it's happened, I just don't think I've witnessed it. We had to postpone our Christmas Day festivities until last night. The snow plow finally came around 4:00 p.m. and only then could our family make it out to the ranch. The roads were completely drifted over with 5 foot drifts in some places. I haven't left the ranch since Tuesday and probably won't until Monday. Yikes folks! That's 5 days cooped up. Talk about cabin fever starting to set in. It did help to get out and go to my in-laws for the long awaited Christmas celebration with family last night.
Just amazing what nature can do. Pretty cool, really.
Saturday was the first day I let the girls venture out in the snow. The winds have just been too fierce. Just blowing, blowing constantly. Thankfully we never lost power and have stayed warm. This is certainly a Christmas to remember, our first Christmas in our little stone house.
