and i left early as soon as they closed down lougheed hwy. they closed/opened/ closed again, dewdney trunk rd too...i snuck thru in the brief open window. i was flipping out, there is like 2 roads into mission and 60 needy animals at the end of my road home and they were busy closing both roads right around me....poor chris, i called her and dictated my will just in case (i am drawing up a new and improved one but am still fine tuning it) lol deb offered to come and get me and drive me home (apparently people don't think too highly of my mini van's ability to circumvent road closures) but i declined since she is one of the main suckers in the will and alot help it would be if she died right along with me.
anyway, i made it home safe and sound and with a handful of peanut butter cookies and a cup of hot tea, i am ready to tackle the barn. from the pathetic wailing coming from yonder field, the donkeys don't much like the snow so i better move it and quickly too.
