Snow Stops Santa!

I thought you’d get a kick out of the email below I sent to a news assignment desk. Santa was almost stopped by snow!
Fox News was outside my house this morning.  Are you maximizing iReporter moments ~ especially when weather strikes? Who knows? My poor mother might even be picked up by National Fox due to her bare-feet spa moment. Whew, the presents for our niece and nephews made it to the post office! I was so concerned Santa may be stopped. From snowy North Carolina … happy holidays.

Hey Everyone at Fox:
Can you forward this email, please, to Steve and Will? I met them this morning due to the snow in my yard.
 
I saw Steve and Will’s Fox truck at my neighbor’s this morning and since I’m a publicist, I couldn’t resist talking to them. Plus, I was on a mission to get my nephews Christmas packages in the mail by noon. Steve saw me “stick” my all-wheel drive pretty good before he and Will had to take off. I thought he might like to see our home video. My husband was a bit peeved we had to use his winch to pull me out of the snow.
 
The good news? We made it to the post office! (In my husband’s 4-wheel truck). We had to pass 4 ditched cars on the way and my husband said the road felt like driving on an off-road motorcycle track, which we do regularly.

You can of course use the footage.
 
Here’s our husky enjoying the snow and my visiting German mom lovin’ the cold on her feet – I guess she thought it was a spa moment.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ugROFnvO-Y
