The best laid plans

This is a long weekend for me and my plan was to finish the KS jacket and moved on to the next jacket.  Thursday a quick developing snow storm blanketed our area with anywhere from 12 inches to as low as less than an inch of snow.  We got about 5 inches.  I was so delighted that we did not lose power during Thursday night.  Friday AM, power went out at 6 AM and did not come back on until Saturday evening.

DH and I spent Friday night at a local hotel; it was just to dang cold in the house without heat.  In checking with the power company on Saturday morning, it appeared that we would not get power until late Saturday night.  So we decided to extend our stay another night at the hotel.

Saturday was my birthday and we kept our dinner plans with another couple.  We had a great dinner together and spent a lot of time talking, laughing and catching up.  Prior to traveling to their home, we learned our power came back on around 4 PM, so that was a nice birthday present from our local power company!

This AM we packed our belongings and came back home after having a great breakfast at a restaurant close to the house.  After unpacking, it was off to grocery store to replenish food supplies and to replace food items that I decided we should not keep; better safe than sorry.  My sewing mojo had not come back so spent the afternoon napping and watching football.

Tomorrow my plan is to make up for my lost sewing time.  More later!
