Just wanted to stop in and wish everyone a very
The trees in our area still have their leaves on them - and this made it a very dangerous situation, as they helped to hold onto the heavy wet snow, which caused many many trees and power lines to go down. Many people - and quite a few of my good scrappy friends are still without power and heat - and I hope it is restored VERY SOON - as it is quite chilly outside. I heard that over 3 million people were without power at one point! I personally feel lucky and blessed that we only suffered a few downed tree branches in our yard, while many others were not so lucky.
I did have a great time on Saturday during the storm -as I was lucky enough to be able to spend it at THE DOO with some of my scrappin' buddies! Throughout the day - many of us had phone calls from home, warning us of the treacherous situation outside - but since we were safe and warm in our favorite Local Scrap Store - we stayed put for most of the day and night - and only ventured out for home - near midnight- when the snow had slowed down somewhat - and the streets were plowed and less crowded. I think this was a good decision, although, I must say that the ride home was VERY SCARY !!! I felt like Alice in WONDERLAND - Kind of like I had arrived in a dark, gloomy and treacherous world that was still hauntingly familiar. I am so thankful that my 22yr old son was still awake - and was able to "talk" his old Mom home - through streets with VERY LOW hanging tree limbs - not just branches - covered with snow, and a few downed electrical lines - not to mention very few street and traffic lights!! I was so afraid one of many leaning/hanging trees would come crashing down on my car, and had wished I had taken the longer, highway route home, but am very thankful that I made it home safely.
Well - it wouldn't be a complete post, if I didn't include atleast one photo ......AND.....
