White Christmas - 1st snow of the year

A picture of my daughters blazer in the driveway
I went outside last night to shovel about a foot of snow.
Moved my daughters truck into the driveway so the
plow didn't bury it. That is the front of my house.
Woke up sunday morning to over a foot of snow.
Had to dig out the driveway from the plow. I drove
my daughter Amanda to work - She works at the mall
and I didn't want her driving. She is only 19 and really
only started driving full time in August. Her blazer has
four wheel drive and drives great in the snow. I drive
like a granny anyway. The roads at 7:30 am were not
really plowed to well. What amazes me: cars on
the road with no 4 wheel drive and drivngs like idiots.
One car was up my butt- so I pulled over and let them pass.
In a hurry to go nowhere really. One 4 wheel drive turned
the corner so fast it skid out and hit the curb. It was a
good teaching lesson for my daughter on the way to work
this morning. I guess I am protective of my little
Amanda Panda. I have to pick her up at the mall at
3:00 today. I am sure the road will be a little bit better.
We don't really get this kind of snow where I live. Long Island, NY.
I love the snow - it is a white christamas.

I thought of you and others who live out that way. EEK! We rarely see that kind of snow. Wish we could have ordered some of yours for our Christmas to lessen the burden. LOL

You got LOTS more snow than my state of MI!!! 4 wheel drive are great in snow, unfortunately they aren't any better when things are slippery, and that's where the drivers stupidity arises!!! Have fun digging out!!

Hi Cindy! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I really love all the little ornaments you have made.
Regarding your question about Round Robins, I will tell you how it works. We are 6 in my group and we all start our own piece of fabric and stitch the first part. Then we send it off to each other. When everyone has stitched a part on everyones pieces we send it home to it´s owner. It´s so much fun and I can´t wait to get mine home.
Merry Christmas to you Cindy. I´ll definatelly visit your blog again.

That is really a great pic; although I must admit that I am so glad that I live in sunny Florida. If we ever got anything close to what was in that picture people would be going nuts. LOL!
I am so glad that you and Amanda made it to your destinations. I am always afraid for those driving in the white stuff. I wish you a MERRY Christmas and a Stitchy New Year.

Sounded kinda an exciting morning to drive out yet a bit of a scare with that kind of snow on the road. We never get snow here.

Wishing you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

You can never be too cautious, especially with your own children.
