Blizzard Conditions

I have spent another day at home. We had the freezing drizzle yesterday and last night. Well the snow hit today with strong winds and bitter cold. We haven"t got as much as to the South and East of us, but the snow is drifting and at times you couldn't even see my next door neighbor house because of the white outs. I am praying that those who do have to be out reaches their destination safely. Those that are going to be hit with the storm just be prepared in the next feel days I hope it loses some of its strength, but that remains to be seen. The only thing that has helped us is that we were on the outer edge, but still being told that it will be another 10 inches before it is done.
It is definitely shutting everything down. I can't remember when I-70 has ever been closed, but they closed it between Kansas City and St. Louis. because of drifting snow and whiteouts. I was watching the news and you could watch the traffic report live. You would see the car go behind them and then they were gone because of the whiteout condition. Can you believe people driving without their lights on in that. My family all checked in to let mom know that they had made it home safely. Whether we work tomorrow or not depends on the drifts and when it stops snowing.
I have watched television the last couple of days some. Now I know what my hubby means when it says that there isn't much on. I don't have a favorite at the moment. I don't care for American Idol not so much as the kids as the judging is something else.
Stay safe and warm where ever you are at. Bad weather stay home if possible. You all take care.

Hi Dear Shirley,
Well our week has been like yours. No school or work all week. We are still in a deep freeze and they predict a wintry mix for Sunday. I don't ever remember it being this cold here in Texas. We had a fresh fall of snow last night over top the ice we already had. Not a good combo at all. It reminds me of growing up in Michigan.

I hope your weather gets better and you stay safe and warm. Thank you for stopping by and good luck in my giveaway.
Have a nice weekend dear friend.
Blessings to you,
Celestina Marie
