This weekend I went up to the cabin with two of my good friends for what was supposed to be just one night of fun and relaxation. Well - Mother Nature had other ideas...................
When we first got there we had to plow a parking space (why do you think I brought friends) - but the weather was beautiful!
After we relaxed and watched a movie we got all bundled up and went to Sonora's Mexican Restuarant. YUMMY! Then decided to head to Chad's to play some pool and hang out. At around 9:00 we decided it was our bed time and were heading home when we met a fun group of people and ended up playing darts, foozball (sp?) and dancing until 2:00 in the morning!!!! Us tired, dead head Mom's were up having fun until the A.M.!!!!!!
When we woke up in the morning this is what we found:About 2 more feet of snow! Soooooo Sherri went to put the chains (that I borrowed from my sister) on the tires and they wouldn't fit! Off I went for 3 HOURS looking for the right size chains. By this time it was pretty much blizzarding - the wind really did knock me off my feet! $140 later, 4 hours of stress, and locals telling us we were crazy - we resolved to just stay another night! So as soon as we all got our kids taken care of back home - it was time for some real FUN!!!We dug into my chest of snow clothes (nothing fit us) and went and played in the snow!!
Since we were really tired (uh-hum) and hungry we decided to brave the snow and go find food. We found that on a blizzardy, Sunday night in Big Bear there is not much open - Our options were Sizzler (yum) or an Oreintal food place. We opted for Pongs. Wasn't all that great - but it was food!!
Making our way back into the cabin..........
And this would be why doors open in.............
It really was soooo pretty and I think God knew we needed one more day of R&R.
It had snowed all night so the drive home was a little scary - but there was no wind - and with the chains on the tires we were just fine! We are WOMEN - hear us roar.
This ended up being a fun, special, relaxing, bonding time with my two dear friends - I love you Trina and Sherri - thanks for being such troopers! When are we gonna have another snow day??
