Cabin fever can breed creativity.
Snowed in and separated from her husband on their 19th anniversary, military wife Martha Bond got out the pots and pans and fashioned a wedding cake out of the fresh snow that fell in her Andover, Kansas, yard, just outside of Wichita.
Her husband, Cliff Bond, is currently deployed. She texted him a photo.
"We had two weddings. We got married on February 26 and then the 5th of March, so this is marking the beginning of wedding week," she said. "I want to see if the cake will last that long without melting."
The worst of a brutal winter storm may be over for many, but plenty of residents of the Great Plains and Kansas are still coping with its effects.
Ice and falling branches downed power lines that are still to be prepared. And the heavy, wet snow made getting around difficult, whether by car or by foot.FULL STORY
