OK, This is about enough snow!!!
As I write this, the snow is falling at the rate of one inch per hour, and it has been snowing since about 10:00 a.m. Uncle Steve has been out twice to shovel. When he comes back inside, he does not look too happy. He described what he thought of the weather, but he used words with which I was not familiar. His school was dismissed at 12:30, but Aunt Kathy had to stay at school all day. She used some of the same words Uncle Steve used. It would be an understatement to say that there is an epidemic of cabin fever here! If you can't tell from the picture, I would be buried up to my ears if I tried to leave the path that Uncle Steve shoveled for me in the backyard. OK, I was buried up to my ears when I left the path, but I thought I saw a bunny!
Given the weather that we are having here, you really picked a good time to go on vacation. Beach, sand, water, these are all words that seem foriegn given what we have outside. Uncle Steve reminded me that this weather is why there were no ancient civilizations in Minnesota. They all had the brains to go south during the winter!

Hi Speck,
It sure looks yucky there. Make sure to tell Aunt Kathy and Uncle Steve that it's okay, they don't need to keep any of that snow around for when we get home.
Today we drove all the way around the island. It took a long time. We got to hike through a rainforest and then across the bottom of a volcanic crater. Talk about different views! And all in the same hike too! We also got to walk through a big cave called a lava tube. Sherrie wacked her head pretty good on the sloping ceiling and Mama took a digger in the dark part of the cave, but we all still had fun. At the end of the day, we went to where the lava flows into the ocean. It was pretty far away (we couldn't go through on the road because it had been covered in lava a couple of years ago and when the lava cooled, no more road! Anyway, it started to rain, a lot, so we went home. It was a long day, 13 hours.
Be sure to thank Aunt Kathy and Uncle Steve for taking care of you when the weather is so yucky and I'm sure you're getting a little cagey.

Love, Mom and Dad
