RAIN,SLEET, SNOW

These are a couple pictures that I took when I got home from work. I had a thin layer of ice on my car when I went to work, then it turned to rain, the next thing it was sleet. About 8A.M. It started snowing and snow ever since. It was really a wet snow. Of course, you had the slush on the streets to contend with. We had our major highway shut down because of wrecks. Depending on where you lived you also lost your lights. I got sent home at about 1:30 and the drive was not fun. I saw a school bus slide in the dish which wasn't to deep, but they were going to have to pull it out. Then I saw a wreck. People just don't drive with any common sense.
Donna over at Byrnwood Needlework blog spot.com is having her 300Th post give away. She really has some neat things that she is giving away. Also check out her beautiful shawl and other knitting that she has just finished. Truly amazing.
I just heard from my son. They are on their way home from the city. They have the highway back open. He is to call me when they get all the way home so then I will know that all of my family is home safe and sound.
My blog followers count is growing and those that love my etsy shop is growing. I so do love the comments that you all love me. It is my of traveling.
I must close for now. You all take care.

Thanks Shirley...that's comin our way!!! They say it'll turn to rain as long as it goes up to 44...woohoo a heat wave!!! Now we have to watch for flooding. If it ain't one thing it's another.
Stay inside, keep warm, relax and embroider.

Oh my goodness!! It seems like the snow and winter will never end, lol! I know it LOOKS pretty but I get tired of it so easy. I think when you are used to it, you get sick of it easier than those who do not live in cold climates. Please be safe and stay warm!
I want to thank you so much for being such a wonderful friend to me!!
Big Hugs,
Amy

Can't believe it....about 40 today some sun. We went for a ride after work. It was really pretty with all the snow. Some roads were still impassable, or at least we weren't gonna try it. We didn't get back till 8p. It's supposed to start raining and not stop til Tues! In the 40's and then temps nosedive. All we need is ice. I can't believe I haven't gotten any sewing done or at least nothing finished. I have things started and then the next idea pops up and I stitch it up. I do that sometimes...then all of a sudden they come together. Well I better be gettin to gettin. it's already 10:30p. Talk to ya later.
