Prayers Please!

Well, the snow is mostly gone here in Corvallis (though more was falling this morning), yet we just talked to friends in the Portland area who have 19 inches on the ground!

So why does this matter to Mugger and Bug? Well, Nonnie and Gramps' flight from Orange County this morning got rerouted -- instead of landing in Portland, they just landed in Yakima, Washington. Given that the major highways around Portland are closed, we're hoping they can get a flight up to Seattle and then down to Eugene.

Please keep their travels in your prayers!

update: After sitting in Yakima on the tarmac for the rest of the morning, they were finally able to land in Portland. With all the snow on the roads, it was almost 7 before they got here tonight, but they're here, safe and sound. You never saw 2 kiddos run so fast out a front door as they did when the car pulled up!


  1. I was just saying to Jed this morning "I wonder if Diana's parents had trouble getting to their house." Glad to hear they made it there.

    Merry Christmas to all!

  2. I'm glad they made it safe and sound. We enjoyed your photos of the snow.

    Hope you all had a beautiful Christmas!


Mugger and Bug would love to hear from you! Just make sure to use their pseudonyms or I can't publish your comment...
