Living on the Tug Hill Plateau in Upstate NY our average snowfall for each season is 200in+ ..Its almost ALL Lake Effect! I know full well how SCARY that kind of whiteout condition is to drive in...Which I TRY to NEVER do..And only do for work, because I am a nurse..and we dont get snowdays :( I am SO glad you guys are safe and home again!! Bless your SOULES..And your good Samaritan friends!!!

This is uncharted territory! Never in my 50 years have I felt this kind of turmoil..It is hard as an adult to know how to figure it all out..I hope you are always this space Amanda. I have followed you..and LOVED you, and your beautiful family for years. Just keep on doing what you have always done. You lead by example, you inspire by your passion and your energy, and you are ALWAYS kind and respectful. I wish you had run for President!!!!!! Thank you for making this little place of yours..right here..a port in the storm. I hope you are always here...I would miss you TERRIBLY if you were not..Hugs to you! I hope Ani feels better now!!!

She is such a BEAUTIFUL child...SHE glows. You two are such wonderful, caring, people. This week has been difficult. YOU are a reminder, that while some things may change...MANY things will stay the same. LOVE will prevail...I will be in the hospital this weekend, caring for the tiniest among us...and I will tell them all..Its gonna be O.K.
