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.

Don't Let the Name Fool Ya

Winter storm Nemo proved he has a few teeth. He packed a powerful punch to the Boston area. There is a travel ban still in effect for today, as the state does its best to clear the slippery roads.

The storm proved to be one of the top five snow makers in Boston history, but still fell short of the Blizzard of '78 benchmark.

It is 1 pm and still snowing fairly heavily in our area. We have about 2 feet of snow.

We did not need to bring Nicholas to Children's at the height of the storm this time. Phew.

Here are some photos of the surrounding area.
