Blizzard of '06

I have the longest driveway in Highlands Ranch, CO. No joke! It's weird, there are some absolutely mammoth houses in Highlands Ranch, mine is not one of them. In fact, mine is pretty much on the opposite end of the spectrum. Yet my driveway is probably 3 times longer than some of the mansions across town. It's because my house is right on a rounded corner, so we have a long lot. It's actually pretty cool because it means my backyard is larger too. But when you get over 2 feet of snow, having a long driveway is no fun.

Denver got socked by a massive snow storm on Wednesday. We had to shut down the offices here at One Way Street. It's only the 2nd time in the last 12 years that we've had to do that. I managed to get into the office today (Friday), but my driveway is still not completely shoveled. And I wasn't even able to make it all the way in to the office. I had to park at the Wal-Mart down the street since our parking lot is still pretty much snowed in.

We're going to have a white Christmas for sure. Not to mention huge piles of snow and an ice skating rink where my street used to be. It's funny to watch my neighbors sometimes when it snows like this. They get so anxious to get out, they pull out their four-wheel drive vehicles and start cruising up and down the street as early as they can. Trying to cut a path so people can drive on the street, they zoom around with the windows open shouting "Yee-Ha" like their auditioning for the direct-to-video sequel to "The Dukes of Hazzard."

Well, at least we're back up and running at One Way Street. There's just 5 of us here so far, but that's a start.

I saw the movie. It contains several religious messages; humility, perserverance, forgiveness, caring for the downtrodden. We participated in a conference call interview with Sly Stallone. The real message is the change in his personal life. The interview is located at www.dove.org under Featured Interview.
