You've probably heard, but NC got hit really hard on Wednesday with a big snow storm. We were leaving Janssen's house that morning; the roads were clear, the sun was out, and then out of nowhere it seemed like, the snow started coming down really fast and really hard.
The boys and I were stuck on the road, in the snow and ice, for over 2 hours....which is nothing compared to what others went through. (I know tons of people who were out for over 4 hours and some who had to abandon their cars.) There were people slipping in the ditch right in front of us, trucks that were unable to move, and snow that was coming down so hard it made it almost impossible to see. It was top 5 scariest moments of my life.
A really amazing thing, though, was all the acts of service I saw during those 2 hours. People were getting out of their cars helping push vehicles out of the ditch, I heard of people giving other people rides..I felt like I saw everyone coming together to help each other through.
This experience was also a great teaching opportunity. I prayed so hard in the car, Charlie prayed, we prayed a few more times....and when we got home, safe and sound, I was able to teach the boys that the reason we were home without any harm or damage, was because Heavenly Father heard and answered our prayers.
PS. This picture ^^ was when we ventured outside for a few minutes yesterday. So grateful for everyone who helped others during the storm, and for all of those that had to travel and work despite the weather.
PPS. Happy Valentine's Day!!
