Found Shoe Under the Snow!
On December 20th, 2006, one
monster Colorado Snow Storm
two feet of snow. Almost every single week after that, more snow came down -
needless to say, instead of watching grass grow
, it was
watching snow fall!
In late January (with tons of snow
still around), my wife came home with a SuperSled
Needless to say,
the boys wanted to take it for a spin on the front yard. Rather than
tell them to put their boots on, we said go ahead with their shoes.
I kept unloading the car when, about 5 minutes later, I noticed Dirk
walking out of the snow ... without his shoes on! I asked what happened,
and he said his shoes came off. Knowing that yet another round of snow
was forecast the next day, we started looking around ... and I even pulled
out a shovel to dig. We found one shoe, but despite our best efforts,
could not find the other. As predicted, more snow fell the next day;
there was no hope to find that shoe! ;-)
Finally, almost a month later, we had a warm spell, and the snow melted.
So we went on another rescue mission for the shoe ... and
finally found it starting to poke through the melting snow.
Finally found the shoe!
