We made it!
We hit the road home from Lincoln today. It was snowing a bit when we left Lincoln, but nothing bad. We were making great time until we headed east on HWY 20 from I-35, then the snow hit with a nice layer of ice underneath. It didn't take long for the pace to slow to a crawl, and even then we passed probably 20 cars that had gone off the road. That added another hour to our trip, but at least it was only that portion of the trip that we had to deal with the weather. When we got home, John had about 4 inches of snow that had to be shoveled out of the driveway and off the sidewalk, which gave him an opportunity to put the shovel we bought last week to work (he says it works great, but maybe we oughta look into a John Deere snowblower...) Then, he and Renee played outside in the snow and made a snow fort and threw snowballs at Mommy when she came back from swimming!
