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.

We spent most of the day preparing for the storm: batteries, flashlights, blankets, food, water, radios, cash and electronic devices. Gas for the cars, generator, chain saw and 4-wheeler. I covered our trees and shrubs and removed all of the snow from our back porch. Turned up the heat and fridge and filled the tub with water.

We are as ready as we will ever be. We are New Englanders and used to the drill.

The boys are excited. Schools have been closed for the next two days.

I am just hoping to keep our power for as long as possible.

The winds are expected to be at times, hurricane force...when you have high amounts of snow fall combined with such howling winds, you can expect to see a lot of photos in the next few days that are going to look alot like this.....

I will keep you all posted for as long as I can.
