I'm sure that you probably saw on the news about our winter storm. I went over to BFF MAB's house to stay during the storm. Every time that we have an ice storm, my neighborhood loses power. About five minutes before I got to MAB's house, it started snowing, so I thought. When I got out of the car, I realized that it was not snow, but ice. We could hear the ice hitting the house all night long. We woke up to ice everywhere. Queenie called me and told me that we didn't have to go to work at our regular time, but that they will re-evaluate at 11:00. At 11:00, they decided to stay closed. We did not have to report to work until 10:00 this morning. I'm back at home tonight. Fortunately, we never lost power. On my way home from work this afternoon, I noticed a lot of wet spots on the roads. With temperatures around 20 tonight, I'm sure the wet spots will become ice spots. My mother got about a foot of snow. The temperatures are not supposed to reach above freezing until Friday. My sister is a school teacher and does not have to go back to school until Friday.

While at MAB's house, we watched movies. We watched Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, and Now Voyager. We were able to catch up reading and rest. Monday night, we watched the Auburn-Oregon football game. I guess I don't have to tell you how that turned out. (WAR EAGLE!!)

Tonight, I have been catching up on the shows that I recorded while I was away. I watch Desperate Housewives, Greek and Hawaii Five-0, but MAB doesn't.

I hope everyone has a good Wednesday.

Good heavens, you all have had the worst weather, yikes! That's what we are supposed to have happen up here in Michigan, that and snow. I know all too well the losing power concerns and reality, good for you heading over to your friend's for movies!

Sending you a smile - stay warm!
