Matt has arrived to dig me out after the blizzard that we have had. Major highways shut down because of all the accidents that they have had today. My family has all been accounted for so far today. My daughter-in-law made it to work and she will call when she gets home this evening. She was glad she went down and saw her dad yesterday before this hit.
I got to stay home which didn't bother me at all because I really didn't want to get out there with people who drive like idiots. It was about noon before I saw people going by the house. I knew I could go if I got out of my driveway, but the snow drift had to be moved first that was right behind my car.
It makes me wish that I had a fireplace that I could curl up in front of and enjoy the warmth, but the house is warm so there is not a problem. I keep it set at one temperature. How many of you remember your house being heated by wood stoves and taking a iron wrapped in newspaper to bed with you to help keep you warm. I have talked with my hubby twice today so he is o.k. Santa played them a visit at the nursing home this afternoon. He was telling me what he got and sounded happy that is the main thing. It is hard to spend the holidays at the nursing home, but we keep taking every day that we get.
My sister called to tell me that Chelsey arrived around 8:30 weighed in at 5 lbs and 13 ounces, 19 inches long. Mommy and baby are doing fine for being a month early. I told my sister that I don't have my quilt done yet. I thought I still had time yet to get it done. She said not to worry about it. I will get it finished.
The picture of the little reindeer in the red shirt is my middle grandson taken at his Christmas program that I went to.
I am sure thankful that I got my hubby back to the nursing home before all of this hit. It was pouring down rain when I came home from the store last night. I was hoping maybe that it would just freeze dry, but the snow and wind came. We had winds up to 45 miles a hour and blizzard conditions.We had quite a thunderstorm there for a while with lightening. You could just hear the wind howl.
After not having to go to work, I went back to bed and slept a while longer this morning. I hope you are o.k. where you are. Some of you are in for quite a storm that headed your way. I have a nephew that lives in Des Monies and they had a lot of snow.
You all take care and stay safe.
