“Wow Sweetie!” I hope I can get the door open,” he said as he shoved with all his might to move the mound of snow blocking the entrance.
He managed to open it enough to squeeze his body through and step outside. Our car looked like one big hunk of white snow. Streets, homes and business all neatly blanketed a foot high with the white fluff. There existed not a soul in site as far as we could see.
February seventh, the day of our anniversary, and we were stuck if a motel room, most likely for the whole weekend or longer. The local news announced the opening of snow emergency roads only that day. Plowing on the side roads would not begin until Sunday morning. No travel advised for the whole town.
“It’s a good stuck, Sweetie. No family, no friends, no boss to call us in to work, it’s just the two of us for the whole weekend.”
“We didn’t plan on this much snow though, honey. How are we going to get something to eat?”
“Oh, I think there will be something open on the main drag. Let’s just wait a little while for the city to start plowing.”
We put on our boots, stocking caps, coats, gloves, and scarves and headed for the center of the town. We laughed and giggled as we trudged through heaps of snow for two blocks or more. Thankfully, there were a few fast food restaurants open. We arrived about fifteen minutes before they stopped serving breakfast an 11:00 am.
Climbing the hill back to the motel proved to be a little harder and required a few more rest stops. We didn’t stop long because the warmth of the room kept beckoning us to hurry onward.
The next two days we spent talking, laughing, loving, resting, eating, and just having a great time. Unfortunately, the roads opened up by Sunday evening, forcing us to pack up our things and head back home, ready to work the next day.
“Bob, what you say we do this again next year for our anniversary? This is one of the best times we’ve had since we were married 25 years ago”
“Fine with me, Sweetie, but you will have to pray the Lord provides us with the snowstorm. Only ask Him to give us a three day blizzard so we can stay a little longer next time.”
