Snow, Snow and more Snow, roads scary and dangerous, a new morning with more to come?

The snow, as I said was about a foot deep yesterday, over night we got about another 6 inches.  Teenager came and plowed the drive again last night but it is thick with snow again this morning.  Our road was a mess yesterday.  Poppie was going down the driveway when the neighbor woman was going down the hill, Poppie went up and picked up Flower and Butterfly and went down the hill, he caught up with the woman about a half a mile down the road, she was apparently scared of the road as she was going about 15 miles an hour, several vehicle pulled in behind Poppie and they all followed her to town and up to the school.  Poppie dropped off the kids, went to the store and came home.  Poppie went to town around 10 to get slop for the pigs, when he returned home he followed the neighbor woman, who was still doing 15 miles an hour, as they came to the bottom of the hill he could see by the tracks on the hill that she had tried to make the hill and not made it.  She slowed and looked up the hill, possible looking to see if some kind neighbor had plowed it, but went past it when she saw that it had not been, Poppie drove up the hill and came home.  The neighbor did not come up, but about a half an hour later her husband came past, he had been at work about 13 miles away so he must have been called home to help her get up the hill.  He used his 4 wheeler to plow for about an hour or so after that, King had his 4 wheeler and plow out as well, his was more effective as it is 4 wheel drive.  I would hope that this would be a blessing to the neighbor woman and show her why none of the rest of the neighbor sled on the hill, or hills, I hope she will think how much worse her experience could have been if some one's sled with little kids on it were coming at her when she was trying to make it up the hill.  I hope that she understand the danger she and the kids would be in if while she was trying valiantly to drive up the hill, her front wheel drive car is not making it and she is facing the fact that her car is then going sideways and she is going to be whipped around or have to intentionally have to whip around and go down the hill, sometimes out of control, and how much more dangerous children sliding down the road would make that.  That in a nutshell is why none of us neighbor that have lived here 12, 30 or 35 years do not, and have never sledded on the hill, the danger to the children sliding and the people in the cars is so great that common sense, love of our neighbors and simple kindness dictates that we don't.  I pray that her problems yesterday are an epiphany and serve to help her heart change for the good of all or at least God shows her that her children are really in danger on that hill when cars can't even control themselves enough to drive up it without kids on it.

I am thinking today will be a groundhog day of yesterday, so to speak, it will definitely be a treacherous road, and hill again today. All the schools in Zootown are closed per the news, a lot in the Bitterroot and Lake county as well, some are running a couple hours late, and ours is opening and running as normal.  Booboo had an ear ache yesterday and had to come home around 1ish.  She is feeling better, her Yogie is babying her.  I love when they are in a best friend mode, it's the adversary mode that drives me crazy, but I understand we learn our ability to solve problems on our own by how we handle our relationships with our sibling.  Still drives Poppie crazy and I have to keep him from interfering with their process.  Work in the form of lovely white snowflakes is still coming down in a steady flow, I can't wait to see what the day brings I am sure it will be an adventure in the snow.... tomorrow. 


  1. Dear Deborah,
    The Community is aware of your obsession with your neighbors. You are in our daily prayers in Church and Bible Study. We are aware of the blog and you are being monitored. Todays entry is alarming- you told the world wide web your husband if following Christina not once, but twice. I’ve attached something that may help you in your journey to accept Jesus Christ as your savior. Proverbs 6:16-19
    16 There are six things the LORD hates,
    seven that are detestable to him:
    17 haughty eyes,
    a lying tongue,
    hands that shed innocent blood,
    18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
    feet that are quick to rush into evil,
    19 a false witness who pours out lies
    and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

  2. thanks for more paperwork for my file and for proof of violations for the next hearing in November, all incidents are docuemented with time and date, getting quite a pile. Wanda James the judge, allowed for incidental passing as there is only one road, especially when there was not room to pass as you were right in the middle of the road, he couldn't help but follow you, duh... It is my husband that is protected per court order, that was legally obtained, so a daily routine of taking 6 kids to school would not interest a judge as stalking behavior, thanks very much for the written proof of your violation of my order.... Oh, and if this was actually a real person from a chruch, with love and concercn for me, they would sign there name to a comment and are welcome to stop by anytime but you are not per court order.... I would say the only way your chruch would know anything about me would be from your gossiping, but then you are good at that.... I thank you for putting a name to my neighbor (yourself) as I never have given one out sort of thought you might not want the readers in general to know your name...

  3. Nanny you are so sweet and special-- and such a women of God!

    I know you got right on your knees and prayed for this family when your husband arrived home telling of their distressful situation due to the snow and icy conditions.

    After praying I'm sure you got busy making hot chocolate for him to take to them to help keep them warm.

    As you busied yourself with calling other neighbors and the sheriff's department to come and assist them to get home to safety.

    Hebrews 4:12
    For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

    1. this comment just goes to show how cruel people can be. very obvious who sent it. have you no life at all? do you really expect to be served hot chocolate after all your tormenting of these people? mind your own biz.

  4. I read Nannie Land... it doesn't take much to figure out that the nasty comment left on Nannie land yesterday was done viciously by Christina herself. I am not going to poke any nasty jabs at you, and sink to your level. Only say... leave these poor souls alone. God will protect them either way.

    1. Sounds to me like nannie has given herself to the Lord many years ago. And it is not for any of the readers of the blog to question anyhow as that is between her and the Lord. unless maybe some of her readers aren't actually reading that she brings things to her Lord on a daily basis as it should be. That is what's important in serving the Lord. Bringing your troubles and cares to the Lord on a daily basis. And those who waist their time grinding God's servants into the mud will some day see the wrath of God and won't they be surprised. Don't judge lest you be judged that is the Lord's and the Lord's alone. I feel for you Nannie God bless you and your family. Keep the faith God is always with you. May you see brighter days. Keep your chin up. Its great that you spend your time with loving time with all your children making snow memories and all during a dark time in your life. Its nice you are able to see all the love around you. Bless you.

    2. Thank you so much for your kindness and kind words, It is nice to have a supporting voice send me a comment, the Lord be with you, and have a great day. Debbie

  5. I might be slow but to the commenter that said the Church and Bible study were monitoring me, is that the roll of a Church or Bible study? Is that even legal?

    1. what church does this person go to, unbelievable. you easily have a case of at least harassment. turn this person in. i hope the church is not supporting her behaviors.

      i do however agree with one thing, but not in a mean way that it was meant. by reading your nannie land a person can see without even knowing you, that you do sound sweet special and a woman of the Lord.

  6. Thank you for your kind words, I am uplifted by you comments and support, May the Lord bless you. Debbie

  7. Poppie couldn't get up the hill on his return from his friends, no not because he can't drive but due to the fact that three vehicles with people that can't drive are in the road. If you know you can't drive you should stay off the road, oh, a tow truck just went by, so people who can drive can make the hill, yay. Poppie and King are going to gravel, Poppie will drive and King will gravel, Poppie now in pain due to having to walk up the hill (what no one brought him coco, go figure). And Poppie who can drive will bring his vehicle home. pathetic and sad.
