More Snow Problems

Today we had another snow storm, but this time it DID create some issues. Courtney was at school and Brandon happened to spend the night at his school for a retreat. My brother left the house at 2am for work. Elaine called in and said she wouldn't be able to make it in. I woke up to about 12 inches of snow and no one to help me with Mike.
My mom said "Karen, the snow WAS predicted" Yes I knew that, but twice before they had predicted alot of snow, yet nothing ever happened. Had I taken the threat of snow seriously, last night, I would have put Mike in the hospital bed so I would have been able to get him out of bed on my own. Instead, we put him in or regular bed and therefor, I needed two people to get Mike up.
I called Elaine back and practically begged her to try to get over, so this way, I could at least dig out the car to get Courtney and eventually Brandon (when the retreat is over). All I got was her voice mail. I contemplated calling my neighbor who had offered countless times to help if I needed it. Instead, after about an hour, my mom called to tell me that they were on their way over. As much as I was frustrated that she and her husband, neither one of which can walk well, came out in this storm, I was SO THANKFUL that I had help.
In the middle of giving Mike his breakfast, Elaine walked in. I was shocked. She came to help with Mike and give me the time I needed to dig my car out and get Courtney. I got Courtney, then Brandon, then Elaine went home and then my mom went home. Unfortnatey, Elaine fell on her way to the bus stop and I am waiting to hear how she is doing.
What a snow day! I am SO READY for the spring.
