Blizzard over

Yesterday we were under a Blizzard warning. Most county and city offices were closed, schools were cancelled, hockey game was cancelled (first time this ever happened), national guard was called out, grocery stores closed early (first time for this too)and highways were shut down. Where I live only got 4 inches of sleet and snow. Farther west they did get a lot more snow, but I guess you can say we were lucky. I of course was hoping for a snow day so I could stay home another day and stitch! LOL But that didn't happen. I had to go to work today.

Now the temps are dropping and it's supposed to be in the negative numbers tomorrow for the first time since 1999.

I have been noticing my car has been slower and slower to start lately so today when I came out from work it didn't turn over the first time. Yikes! I want to go home. It did start the next time, but I was worried. I came home and parked in front of the house so I could shovel some snow at the end of the driveway where they had plowed and piled it up. I knew my car wasn't going to make it over it since I almost got stuck when I left for work this morning. Well I start shoveling and all of a sudden someone honks and a truck with a plow on the front that was at the neighbors comes over and plows my driveway. I was thankful for the help! Then my car almost didn't start for me to pull it into the garage. Looks like DH will have to go out in the morning and get me a new battery for the car. I have gotten my money's worth out of this one since I haven't replaced it since I have owned the car and I bought it new in 2003.

Hope everyone is snug and warm!
