My last post was about Freaky February Garment of the Month, which has not yet materialized.
Last Monday was a holiday and my big plans for sewing were interrupted by a snow storm followed by sleet and freezing rain. All of this led to power outage for three days! Freaky February Storm!
I like snow when I don't have to travel in it; I don't like it when it is snow, sleet and then freezing rain. Instead of sewing DH and I were shoveling snow. A young man in our neighborhood came along and using snow blower tackled cleaning my very long and uphill driveway. My husband and I are still not sure where he came from and when we offered to help replenish his gas he would not accept our gift. His was a true gift to us as we have enough aches and pains without having to do a lot of shoveling.
So the sun came out while all of this was going on and the snow stopped. A few hours later, came the sleet and then during the night came the predicted freezing rain. I woke at 3:15 AM on Tuesday morning to quiet and realized we had no power.
Tuesday, Feb. 16 was my 43rd wedding anniversary. Going into work at noon, the temps were rising and the rain was over. That evening we moved into a hotel, enjoyed an unplanned dinner out for our anniversary and enjoyed having lights and heat.
We were able to return home on Friday.
I lived in Florida for nine years and loved every minute of it! I remember sitting in my recliner watching people dig out from the snow while wearing shorts and sandals and feeling sorry for those that had that digging/shoveling to do. When I retire I am Florida bound again!!!
