On April 15, 2008 we closed on a 1955 Mid-Century Modern home in Merriam, KS that was custom designed by the late Donald R. Hollis of Hollis + Miller Architects. We will be sharing our journey as we update the house to make it our own, while trying to stay as close to the original design as possible.

2011 Snowcapolypse!

Well it has happened again, except worse!  We got about 10"-12" of snow here.  Fortunately, we worked at home on Monday and Tuesday, and the office actually closed on Wednesday.  So we were basically stuck in our house (more like jailed).

So LD had this "awesome" idea to do a search in the blizzard!  She said that it would be easy to see the wind direction, and good to get the girls out of the house.  So what do I do?  I grab my coveralls, boots, coat, hat, gloves, and balaklava and hide in the woods.  The temperatures were around 16F with wind velocities between 30-40 mph.

LD sent Katy first, then Morgan.  They both found me in like 2.5 minutes.  Then she sent Phoenix.  She is only 7 months, but did a great job!  And she found me in about 3.5 minutes.  She is growing up so fast, and  doing so well in her disaster search and rescue training.

Watch her search in the blizzard!
