Our Journey Raising Two Children with Special Needs

This blog chronicles our life raising two children, Nicholas 14, diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and Weston 17, diagnosed with Autism/Asperger's/ADHD. It's the ups, the downs, the joys, the sorrows and most importantly, the beauty of living a life less perfect, a life more meaningful.

Here we go...

The Governor of Massachusetts canceled school and ordered non emergency vehicles off the road by 12 noon today. He has issued a ban on all travel by 4 pm.

Pete made it home safely from work.

The snow has started to fall, the wind is roaring and we are no where near the height of the storm.

 

I am happy to report that Nick's pediatrician prescribed us a "parachute" prescription of antibiotics to protect Nicholas during the storm, to use in case his swollen gland issue worsens. Phew...! Thank goodness because travel to Boston during this blizzard would be impossible and most likely life-threatening.

Total expected accumulation for our area has increased to 24-30" of snow. Wind gusts are expected at up to 65 mph. Hurricane force winds are expected off shore.

We have all our emergency supplies, in case we lose power. We are hunkered down for the evening.

Eager to play in some snow, at last, the boys tried to do a little sledding. But the blowing wind and snow made it too difficult. They quickly abandoned their plans.

 
Can you guess what I am baking?


Here's a hint!
