Dec 9, 2007 The storm is here.

We woke several times during the night to hear the sleet pelting on the windows. Rusty was called to be at work at 11 AM tomorrow morning.

By 8:30 we were all up and getting our daily dose of caffeine. It was great to finally see Rusty in person and visit.

As soon as Rusty left for the station, BT Sarah and I piled into BT's Jeep, thank goodness for 4 wheel drive. The streets were ice covered as well as the entire city. It was just a short distance to their Walmart Grocery store, not like the super centers we have in Missouri. Between the 3 of us and a short list we managed to get quite a few groceries.

Back home we had ham and cheese sandwiches. BT had Orange juice to perk him up and for my perk Sarah got out her cappuccino machine! WOW what a treat. The poor dog didn't know what to think of the ice covered patio. She didn't spend too much time out there, except to free her toy from the inch thick later of ice. I wish I would have captured that on film. Sarah tried, but we never got my camera to do a video.
When Rusty came home early afternoon, him and BT got into a little competition with the Wii. Those are so much fun. We teased Sarah that she was getting us ready for the old folks home.

I made dinner of meatloaf, Aunt Janie's river potatoes as Sarah calls them, broccoli and rice casserole and Sarah did the blackberry cobbler, Cabin style.

The weather continued to deteriorate as the evening went on. Rusty headed to bed early because he had to get up 2 AM and report for work.
