Reflections on a snowy Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving Mandy and I went up to South Lake Tahoe with some friends. All of us live pretty far from our families, so we became family for one another. We arrived on Wednesday and left on Saturday. We played lots of games (Cranium, Balderdash, poker and foosball), went to a casino (where I lost $14), ate a lot of food, and had some good worship and prayer time.

The adventure really began on Saturday morning, when we got ready to leave. It started snowing sometime during the night, and continued as we were leaving. We finally decided that it was best to just stay where we were. (The fact that I got a flat tire added to this wisdom). It quit snowing around 3:00, then the owner and his friends showed up. We saw this as a sign that we had overstayed our welcome. We left a little before 5:00. Four hours later we had gone 20 miles! Good times!

Anyway, a few hours after that we made it home. I was ready to get off that mountain. Aside from the long drive, it was a great trip.
