Does a sandstorm close roads?

Today in Pelican Rapids, we received 18 inches (!) of snow. It makes moving to Kuwait sound really good!! How can there be the largest snowdrift we remember right outside our kitchen window--when it's May in 5 days! The robins were really, really confused. I found myself apologizing to them as we trudged to the post office. Our dogs got to see what it would be like as sled dogs as they plowed the way in front of us.

Our neighbor Rob yelled at us out his kitchen window, "And you want to give up all this excitement and move to boring Kuwait?"

Maybe weather won't be the major life determiner that it is here. At this point, I'm certainly ready to give it a try!!!
