Cold Snap and Traffic

My Quilt

Our cold snap is still with us. I hoped we would wake up this morning to a bright sunny day, but no such luck. It's colder today than yesterday. We had to get out today in spite of the weather and it showered lightly. I was afraid it would turn into ice but the light rain only lasted a little while. Traffic on 75 wasn't as bad as it sometimes is so we weren't stranded in a line of standing cars. We passed a few State Patrols along the way and got home tired and weary. Since I didn't get to Mylot yesterday, thought I would bring you up to date. I hope you all had a joyful day. Sleep tight and wake up rested.

It's been a strange winter so far @RubyHawk we're already in the 80s and my trees all have leaves starting.

It is awful when it gets cold. I hope it warms up for everyone, especially those suffering through Stella.

So do I. It's cold enough here but it will be over soon hopefully. But we had our biggest snow ever a few years ago in April. I feel bad for new York and the north eastern states.

@RubyHawk I'm from Connecticut and our younger son lives there. He told us that he's dealing with it, whatever that means. Kids! He will check our house on Saturday. Hope it's still standing. I remember a huge blizzard on March 31st many years ago. Fingers crossed that spring will be here to stay, and soon!

@DianneN Hopefully your house will be all right and you son too. . I saw on the news that many people were snowed in.

Thank you for the compliment. I love all sorts of patterns. Maybe after getting this picture on, I'll be able to submit others.

@Happy2BeMe It's a mystery to me why my pictures wouldn't submit.

Winter is showing no signs of leaving and we're getting a major snowstorm overnight and tomorrow. That's a very pretty quilt on the bed. Did you make it?

Too bad you are getting more snow. This Georgia cold is bad enough. Yes, I made it several years ago. Quilting is one of my hobbies.

@RubyHawk your quilt is definitely a work of art. Quilting is one thing I never learned

@Marilynda1225 You should try it if you think you would like quilting. Just get a book of patterns and follow the instructions. I draw a lot of my own patterns.

Next week it's supposed to be in the 70's. That will be a good change.

Going out in bad weather could be quite a task. Glad that you are through with it now and you are safe in your warm house.

Yes, we only had to go to the grocery store today, and my better went to get a haircut. I've been catching up laundry and housework and made a pot of soup..

It would be awful to be held up in a line of cars. This hasn't happened to us in ages, thank goodness.

It happens to us all the time. Atlanta traffic is some of the worst in the states.

it is. It's one I made several years ago. I've tried and tried to get pictures on my discussions and this is the first one that went on. It surprised me. I might not ever get another one on.

It's rainy and, in the 40's or 50's here, but at least not icy.

I thought Oregon was supposed to be colder than Georgia.
