BACK IN CHINA: We got an email today that made us cringe.
There is a LOT of snow and ice where we live right now. It's pretty much in the constant negative degree range for the majority of our winter.

And today, a garbage truck skidded on the ICE down the hill and straight into our NEW Ice Cream delivery van. Yup...couldn't stop if they wanted to. Here is the evidence and damage:

Crazy, huh??

We should have parked in a different spot. But thankfully, the garbage truck is insured by the city - and they are paying for all the repairs!! Isn't that incredible?? We are also SO very thankful for our amazing business partners who are taking care of all the details while we are away. We love them so much, and its less nerve-wracking knowing they are taking care of everything so well.
