My husband made it home before 3 pm. He said he drove for about 100 miles in terrible weather and then it wasn't so bad. He out drove the storm, so to speak. I had to work till 6:30pm. When I left, the weather was beginning to be horrid. I was so glad to make it home. Around 9pm or so, our power went out. No TV, no computer, phones (except cell), no heat! Yikes! May as well sleep. Got our power back this morning after 12 hours. Yeah!!!! I didn't make it into work today. The street hasn't been plowed yet. The winds are high and the weather is frigid. We have icey snow everywhere. Will take pics if I ever warm up again.
- I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.
