    Our 1-3 inches turned into 6. Did a man measure?

    Well, as the old saying goes...about 6 inches and its only 3, but no, the meteorlogists got it backwards this time. Here in Western NC we were suppose to be light. but it is still coming. GS from 200 miles east of here says they have 8 and it is still coming. We have to go into the restaurant because we have motel guests checking in or I think we might just hole up. 30 miles in 2 hours will be grueling, but I think I will ride with DH. No point in both of us being miserable behind the wheel.
    For those of you in snow country, north and west of here...just laugh. Rural roads with mountain drop offs are pretty scary and as The South Carolina quilters will tell you, that layer of ice underneath is something else. They sprayed the roads with a brine solution yesterday in hopes of not having that ice layer, but we'll see.
    The good news...its beautiful and we are in a draught and this will be good for the water table and it will kill off the flea and tick eggs. Nature has a wonderful way of keeping us a wonderland.
    When DH got up he said we would probably just stay home. I found myself planning my sewing. I took the old machine into the restaurant yesterday and got a head start of a DP9. But everything is there for that. BUt, not to worry...I have a top almost finished here at home that just needs borders and then it will be ready for sandwiching and quilting. Good to have multiple projects going.
    Still wondering which one I will work on today. lol
    Walk in peace with the Lord by your side.

      I'm so glad to hear that you tried taking your old machine in to the restaurant. Days should be filled with as much joy as possible, and quilting is my joy.

        Terry, it's so great that you now have a machine in each location and can work on something no matter where you are! I love that for you. Stay safe if you must go out. We didn't get much in the way of snow, but we're covered in a thick sheet of ice. No traveling going on around here. I think I'll spend the warm part of the day working on 365 blocks.

          Just got a report from family in Georgia, seems weatherman got it wrong there too. They were expecting up to 8 inches, but only got a dusting.
          I have a niece in NC, i'm sure she and her kids are loving it. They recently moved there from Florida so it's their first snow.

            Be careful, Terry. I hope your ice melted with the brine.

              Only about an inch here, and I don't have to go anywhere which is good, since they don't bother clearing roads here. They just shut down the schools instead. But I must say this morning's 9 degrees is MUCH colder than it has a right to be. NOT used to that at all!

                We got about 3 or 4 inches as predicted. It's quiet and beautiful this morning. I can barely see the foothills of the Smokies, so I guess the snow is still coming down there. We're warm and have plenty to eat, so I'm heading to the sewing room.

                  My SIL & niece were supposed to move today, but it's been postponed till Mon. because of the predicted snow there. They live in Kodak, TN. We didn't get as much here as they had predicted (6-12"), but the 8.5" was plenty! Some areas of the Colo. mts. got anywhere from 15-30". I'll just be glad when the bitter cold is over. It was -12 yest. a.m. & -2 today. Stay safe, Terry.

                    No new snow in Wis but our 5th straight day of temps around 5 degrees and windchills minus 10 to minus 20. Enough already. My dog is itching for a nice long walk but I am not going out there! Supposed to warm up this week.

                      Well, we moved from CT 7 months ago. To wake up to 5 1/2" was nothing there - but here? We were hoping we didn't have to shovel for a while. One of the 1st things we sold before moving was our snow blower. We went out shoveling did our driveway, walkway decks and porches. Didn't see a soul - but we did feel like there were many eyes watching us. NO - I do NOT miss this at all. Even the cows in the pasture land behind our house slept in this morning. We are in the Greeneville, TN area. Yes, it is beautiful - and I don't plan on doing anything else for the rest of the day except sew. Be careful if you have to go out anywhere. Stay warm - but stay safe.

                        It's still coming down and predicted to keep it up until tonight, no surprise that DS#1 called and cancelled meeting for dinner tonight. Better get something rustling on the stove for dinner At Home. Some thick veggie soup sounds good, think we have some hard rolls to go with it.

                          No snow here, but we are supposed to get the "once in 10 years" rain storm.
                          They have a fill your own sandbag station available. I have only lived in my house a year,
                          but in 1995 my city had a huge flood with people standing on their rooftops. Since then
                          the government has spent millions on flood control. Supposed to rain for a week, with
                          snow run off from the mountains 1 hour away. Still I will take rain over snow anytime.
                          Everyone stay warm and dry, drive extra careful.

                            Those of us who live in the north can laugh at the weather weenies who panic when there is a dusting of snow, but the amounts you are getting is definitely no joking matter. Also the atmospheric river predicted for California. Dangerous weather folks. Just hope everyone stays safe.
