The snow is back and I can't get out of my driveway because the city has plowed it full and have drifts around my car. They don't have any place that I can park my car cleaned yet so I am stuck at home with statements due out Monday. I didn't want to burn another day of vacation this way. I have to many things to do and it is a short month the way that it is. We only had another 8" of snow. The warm weather made you think that Spring was just around the corner. My magnolia tree was starting to bud out. It always has such a time anyway. It can be very pretty if the weather cooperates. I guess I will go an embroidery for a while being I can't really do what I wanted to do.

My hubby doesn't get to come home just yet which is just as well with all of the snow that we have on the ground and I don't get to go see my grandsons because the oldest has Influenza. His mom took him to the doctor yesterday. He is running a fever. They are having quite a go of it right now. Matt had strep throat and now Jake with this. You always wonder what next.
The snow we have would let you build a good snowman, have a snowball fight, or build a fort. I think it would be good for skiing because it is powdery. I know that it was over the top of my boots when I was cleaning my car off. I know that it is only 19 degrees, but it didn't seem that cold. I was bundled up today. I only know it took me 45 minutes to get home seeing two accidents on the way. Visibility was horrible, but I didn't have any problems. I had just got home when my boy called and told me class was out. He took the bus and it took three hours for him to get home. The first bus that he was suppose to catch was in an accident. They only had over 50 of those in the city and many could have been avoided if they had only watched how they drove.
Traffic backed up on the Interstate because people couldn't make it up the hill and the median looked like a parking lot with all of the slide offs. I know I didn't go to the nursing home because of the weather, but I took his cell phone to him so that we could still talk yesterday.
You all have a good day.

My goodness Shirley you have your hands full! I'm sorry to hear your husband is still away from home but I hope he is doing better and can come home soon.
It sounds like winter is not ready to let go in your corner of the world and it certainly is not ready to let go here! Stay warm and take care.

Oh girlfriend, it sounds as though you are really getting it. Maybe you will have a gorgeous spring as a reward for all you have to endure.
I hope the boys are well soon, it's been a rough winter for the germs out there.
I am thinking of you and wishing some warmer temps and some sunshine your way, Char

Hi Shirley,
Winter has been brutal for so many and here once again you have more snow. I hope it does warm up enough to get your car cleared and out.
Hope the grands get better too and your hubby gets to come home.
In the meantime, I know you are stitching something beautiful!

Thank you for the birthday wishes. It really is the 28th and although I love the fun of my day, I really am not a fan of growing older. LOL Oh well!!
Stay warm and safe my friend.
Love from Texas, Celestina Marie
