"I was going to read a book tonight but we have 18 plus inches of snow and my wife has been out shovelling for close to 3 hours; I can't see her anymore in the high drifts.
I sent our black lab out to find her about 2 hours ago, but he has not returned.
I sent our cat out to find them both about an hour ago but he also has not returned.
Maybe I will go and read that book now that the house is so quiet."
Witty, Dad. Very witty.
