THE CITY STREETS HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO MELT AT ALL, STILL SOLID ICE - AND WITH THE TEMP NOT GETTING ABOVE 20 SOME DEGREES, THE SALT ISNT DOING A BIT OF GOOD.
WE CANT GET UP OR DOWN OUR DRIVEWAY AT ALL. PARKING ON BURT AVENUE! IM ABOUT TO GO INSANE NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

WE ARE SUPPOSE TO GET MORE SNOW MONDAY AND TUESDAY TOO!! UUGH
THEY WILL BE GOING TO SCHOOL TIL THE MIDDLE OF JUNE IF SO.

"Today we received the WONDERFUL news from the MRI that Bree’s tumor has shrunk significantly! The chemo is definitely doing its job! The doctor told us it was better than he expected. The tumor is still there but it has shrunk down enough to entertain the idea of doing surgery to remove the tumor. "
