This wasn't in the weather forecast...

SNOW! We had freezing rain last night so it was slicker than snot when I went to pick up Russell this morning. He and two other teachers were in a car accident this morning. This was about 7 a.m. I picked him up about 7:45. 8:15 I was in town running errands very slowly and it started to snow. It's now 9:30 a.m. and the snow is sticking and we have HUGE ginormous flakes coming down. This wasn't in the weather forecast. Just a high wind warning starting tonight. Maybe we will get a whole bunch and the boys can stay home tomorrow.
By the way - the accident didn't require any ambulance services. Thank goodness. But the guys will be pretty sore tomorrow I am sure. Their accident is known all over town though. Talk about word spreading like wildfire! Sheesh!

We've had big sloppy wet flakes for most of the day. Fortunately it's not cold enough to freeze or stick. Hope Russell's doing OK today.

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
