Luckily we were here at the time so they came to our place because the roads were so bad Mike didn't think he'd be able to make it to the small town they lived in. In fact, the RCMP closed all of the highways out of Lethbridge because of bad road conditions and poor visibility. Up until Sunday, there wasn't a trace of snow in this area.
So we hunkered down for the duration of the storm. The kids thought it was great fun. They know where I keep all the toys and kid stuff so they were happy. And Kenny got out the deck of cards so he and I could have our customary game of War.
Middle son, Alex, cosied up to Papa right away and 'helped' him look through a car magazine.
When it came time to put the kids to bed, because they came unprepared with overnight clothes, they each wore a t-shirt belonging to their grandparents. They kind of floated in them and Hannah's arms kept coming out of the too wide sleeves. They thought it was great fun though.

And finally, with the extra beds made up, Avril settled down with the little ones and read to them until they were ready to go to sleep.
By Monday the roads were passable, visibility was once again good, and life got back to normal.
It's not so bad being snowbound for a day or so. Especially at this time of year when you know the snow will soon disappear.
