Thank you. All of you who are presently affected, please take care and be extra careful driving. We folks up north are used to this winter weather and know how to function in it. But for the south, it is a whole 'nuther story. You folks don't even have the clothing for this. A heavy coat alone just doesn't cut it. Frost bite is a reality and can lead to amputation if not taken care of. And it can happen without you even realizing it. And one to watch over all of you. Or as you would say, Ya'll

It's coming my way, too. I'm recuperating at home and not going anywhere. DH should be home by 4 pm, before any possible accumulation. Wind chill in the mid-teens now.

Here in Asheville, the snow is piling up! Joy is all tucked up under her car cover, probably frozen to the pavement by now.

We've been out eating it and I like to throw snowballs at Azia.

We knew this was coming two days ago so we have plenty of food. We still have power, and we have a generator if it goes away.

With love,
