It started off as a nice day. We were headed to our log cabin. My in-laws family were headed up to their cottage.
Look how blue the sky was.
Oh - did I mention that the road to my in-laws is a 2-track road? And did I also mention that we didn't count on the road not being plowed all the way? And that my mother-in-law would drive straight into a snow bank in the road?
That's not all. My brother-in-law tried to go through a back entrance and got his bronco stuck on an unplowed road. We now had two cars to dig out. Here's a photo of my husband and nephew walking down the road w/ shovels. (Parts of the road were melted - some were not.)
By the way, do you know that Road Service will not come to an unplowed road? My mother-in-law's truck was pulled out, but my brother-in-law's car which was in its own snow bank was not budging. We had to leave it. It will stay right where it is until the snow melts. Seriously.
And the worst part - my husband & I had encouraged them to come up this weekend and assured them the roads should be fine. And it was my brother-in-law's birthday. Yep, we have some serious making up to do!
