What a crazy week!


I live in Georgia, just north of Atlanta, so you've probably seen on the news what an incredibly crazy week it's been here. We were lucky for the most part. I was able to get the kids home from school on Tuesday before the worst of the weather hit. The kids have really enjoyed the snow and having a few days off school. I love having a house full of silly teens, they are entertaining.
 

But after all that fun outside, this is what it looks like inside...


Sigh. At least a good time was had by all! (Well, except for that part where my husband got stranded overnight in the storm.) He got home the next day, and now he's back at work.



As for me, I'll  just keep sewing...

Enjoy every stitch, and stay warm!
Diane

  1. Oh Goodness! Stuck all night! Was he on the road like we saw on the news or did he find shelter? Glad all is getting back to normal by now!

    1. He was called in to fly a trip, Delta said they would hold the flight until he got there. His normal commute time is less than an hour, and after 4 hours, he was less than half way. Delta decided to cancel the flight after all (can't go without the captain) and told him to just go back home. HAHAHA he was creative and knew some alternate routes, but only made it a few miles by 3am. Tired and cold, he sought shelter in a grocery store with dozens of others who had worse stories. After sunrise, he tried again and made it home safely. He was one of the luckier ones. It was still a VERY long night for him.

  2. Oh dear, I am very sorry to read about your husband's long night! Those cars parked on the highway were surreal. What a winter!

    All the best!

    1. Thanks Monica! It's been so crazy this week, but we are feeling blessed to be safe and warm now. He really didn't want to venture out but was at least well prepared (full tank of gas, food and water) but I know he's glad that experience is over. I'm ready for spring!

  3. I know!! The snowsuits, piles of gloves, hats, coats and all the puddles used to drive me crazy every winter. Oh well, it's good clean fun and expends a lot of energy.:)

    1. You are correct, they can't stop eating! But they were pretty enthusiastic eaters before the snow too. LOL We expecting more next week, this polar vortex can't seem to stay away from Georgia!

  4. Diane, I am glad that you all weathered the storm so well. Glad your husband found shelter! I can't imagine spending the night in a car on the freeway - well, I can, but I live in snow country so there is a lovely wool blanket always in my car and when I travel I add pillows and quilts to that! I hope you all get to stay home next week if there is another storm...stay warm!!

    1. Thanks so much! I do hope the next storm isn't as bad as this one was. The temps were just so cold and the ice covered everything! Glad to finally be thawed, for a while at least! :)

  5. Oh Diane, I had no idea you had such bad weather. I haven't seen a news bulletin for days. My laptop is in the shop, and we have been too busy out and about to catch anything on television. So glad all is ok. Hope the weather is not so harsh this week. Bundle up under some quilts and stay warm.

    1. It has been very unusual for here. When we do get snow or ice, it usually melts quickly, but our temps have been abnormally low, so everything froze and stayed that way for days! Glad it's over for now, but they say we are in for more next week. Good grief! Right about now, I wish I could come visit you and enjoy some sunshine!!!
