Courtney and I were planning on watching Phantom of the Opera together because no one ever wants to watch it with us! So around 9:30, she calls me and asks if I want to go up to the Hot Springs instead. Of course I said yes, I love the Hot Springs! So I start to leave my house, (and it was snowing quite a bit in the morning, then calmed down and most of the snow had melted) and it starts snowing again. Roads are completely fine, but as I get going, the snow keeps coming down, harder and harder, especially once I got down in Provo. Well, I get to Courtney's apartment, and I tell her that it probably isn't the best idea to go to the Hot Springs, because the way to get there is up the big, windey canyon and it's more than likely going to be a lot more snowy and slippery up there. Now that THAT idea was thrown out the window, and Coy and Nick had already shown up, we went to our lovely fall back idea to watch a movie. No one was really suggesting anything, so we got to pick!! And guess what we chose?! Phantom of course!! We knew that since we chose it, the guys would more than likely leave, but they surprisingly stayed and Coy actually liked it!! (Nick, I'm not sure about. He fell asleep literally 2 minutes after it started) After that 2 hour movie was over, I decided it was time to go home (since it was 1:30 in the morning, and I have to leave my house for work at 7:20) As I'm walking out of Court's apartment, I see that there is snow EVERYWHERE! And not just an inch or so.. no no no.. it was a good 6 inches on everything! My car was burried!! I could barley even tell which one it was! Anyways, since I don't have a snow scraper, I used my little Squeegie to scrap some of the snow off my car so I could see, and I realized it was just too pretty outside to pass up some pictures!! Coy and Courtney wanted me to text them when I got home safe, since I had to go up and down a few hills, they were a little bit worried. So I said "I just pulled in my parking garage! And I was stopping on the way home for pictures!" Coy's response was "Haha good ol Shaylin :) Blizzards can't even stop her picture taking!" MOM! AREN'T YOU SO PROUD OF ME!! I was driving down the road, and since there's no one on the snowy road at 2:00 in the morning, how could I resist stopping every minute to take a picture?! I couldn't!! Here are some of the pictures!!

This is my "What the heck!! It's April 15th, and still snowing this hard?!" face! (That's the top of my car behind me)

Well.. I couldn't get mad that it was snowing, because there's nothing I could do! So, I resorted to picture taking! Perfect idea!

My car after I attempted to get as much snow off as I could

WHOOPS!! I left my little "Squeegie" on the back of my car and it stayed on the whole drive home!!!

This is the picture I took this morning on the way to work. IT'S GORGEOUS HERE!!

I'm thinkin this will be a fun scrapbook page?
