Weekend Assignment #42

Weekend Assignment #42

By The Way...

: Share your favorite story of Winter cold -- preferably (but not necessarily) involving something freezing inconveniently and humorously.

Well I can think of 2 right now. The first and to me most important is when I was pregnant with Jordyn. Not a little pregnant, but 10 days I believe from my due date pregnant! I was up at my parents for the first of 3 baby showers I was due to have! The shower was to be on Sunday, we woke up to a blizzard. So March of '98 we had record snow fall. We were literally stuck inside. My dad and Chad opened the garage door and dug their way out, then dad went and got his tractor to try and at least clear out the drive way...but the tractor got stuck! Of course I started having contractions every 7 minutes. Thankfully by Monday we were FREE! LOL

The second one was Halloween '92. I was in highschool. We had a ice storm. The tree's looked beautiful, but the whole town was out of electricity for over a week. I remember sitting in class and watched as a HUGE tree fell on a classmates brand new car (who's house was caddy corner from the HS)...I'll never forget the beauty of the ice on the tree's though. We stayed at family friends house, because they had a wood burning stove and a generator for that week.

Extra credit: Name a song that reminds you of winter that's not Christmas-themed. Ok it's crazy, but Informer I think the guy went by Snow or something stupid like that! Anyways it was out when I was in highschool and my friend Dena and I would cruise around listening to that song, in the guy's "Jamacian" voice (I think it came out the guy was NOT Jamacian..can't remember! LOL) I just remember cruising around the heat at full blast, and windows down (we were teenagers aka STUPID!). That's my winter song! :)

OMG! I remember that song!!! I remember in the video he had like a white sweater on too. LOL!!!! Funny...now I have it in my head.
Well my first winter story is: My first time seeing snow EVER was when we were stationed at Ft. Drum NY. It snowed a whole lot. We went to this hill across the street from my house (we bought sleds that day). I got all the way up on the hill and was too chicken to go down it. So my husband told a little boy to push me down the hill. The little boy listened and as I slid down I was scared sh*tless!!! Then when I got to the bottom the sled turns upside down and I fall on my stomach and face. A week later I found out I was 5 weeks pregnant. LOL
2nd one is: I was an FCC Provider and my husband left to Louisianna for training. The next day we had a snow storm and had to shovel 3 feet of snow alone. LOL..it was a good work out though.
