Snow, Snow and More Snow

The snow started this morning at about 9 A.M. or there about. It has been snowing every since. The problem now is that the wind is beginning to pickup so we will have drifts in the morning I just don't know how bad.
We closed at 3 today because of the snow and how bad the streets were getting. Of course, the side streets didn't have the snow plowed from the snow that we got during the Christmas Holidays. We still have snow on the side streets, plus they put salt on them instead of plowing so it just makes matter worse. Of course you always have the people who don't drive for the road conditions and cause accidents.
It took me a hour and a half to get home. I did stop at the grocery store because I don't know if I am working tomorrow or not. I am to check in to see because we may not even open up with the weather like it is right now. It won't take to much longer for you to not be able to see my tire tracks. With all of the snow, cold weather that is setting records across the US. You won't make me believe in Global Warming. You dress in layers and when it never warms up enough that you can take some of it off. You wonder what you are doing out in the cold.
Of course, even as cold as it was there were kids coasting, my grandsons included while mommy and daddy walked and took care of the dogs.
mimi at Dandelion Wishes had beautiful winter pictures on her blog. I told her I would like to trade her snow for mine because it looked as though she had less then we did. I have my third tea towel done ready for the borders, but I don't think I will do that tonight instead I think I will have an early night. The drive home was nerve wrecking with the accidents and close call. I saw a police car almost get hit twice. The bad thing would have been if the 2ND car had hit him, because the police officer would have been caught between the two cars and would have probably been hurt pretty bad. You prayed a lot that you would make it home without being hit.

Glad you made it home safely!

We are expecting snow tonight here. Our 19 inches we got a couple of weeks ago just went away and now we are getting more! Ughhhhh!

Hi Shirley,
Stay warm and safe. We do not have the snow, but bitter cold temps for us here in Texas. Not used to this at all.
I so enjoyed my visit to your lovely blog. Your creations are wonderful and you are so talented. Thank you for stopping by and following me. I have done the same here and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Glad you stopped by my blog! I'm also glad you are safe at home. I'm in Texas and we just have a strong cold wind. It suppose to be 13 degrees tomorrow morning and we're not used to that! But at least no ice! Can't wait to see your tea towels. Stay warm!
