We decided to stay outside in the snow for awhile, and then headed in before SC could get too cold. When we turned the knob on our backdoor it had automatically locked, which we had both forgotten about. It didn't seem like too much of an issue though, since we can get in through the garage door...but then the keypad wasn't working. It was then that we both started to panic and SC (probably sensing our worry and getting cold at this point) started crying. We weren't really sure what to do because we knew a locksmith wouldn't be coming out in the weather, so we decided that the most rational option would be to try to use a brick to break through our backdoor. Not our finest moment as homeowners. But we didn't have the heart to break the glass (aka that glass is way stronger than you would think), so we headed over to our neighbor's house to try to get SC warm and figure out if they had any ideas. We are both so glad that we did because they helped us realize it was just a battery issue with our garage keypad, so it was an easy fix. But it sure did feel pretty dramatic as we stood locked outside of our toasty house in the snow with a wailing toddler. The upside of this whole adventure is we met some new neighbors and didn't actually damage our house...but what a homeowner fail on our end! Needless to say, we spent the rest of the weekend safely ensconced in our house, with the exception of the husband spending hours shoveling the driveway on Sunday. It's probably a good thing that this area doesn't usually get too much snow, because we are clearly not up for the challenge! Anybody else have any snow adventures? Hopefully none as exciting as ours!
