It has been a while since I posted. My summer was a challenge with some personal issues but I am thankful and grateful for how things have changed for the better. I am enjoying my marriage and the new chapter in our lives. My son is loving college. We are missing our oldest as he is serving in Afghanistan right now so please say a prayer for him to keep he and his servicemen are safe.  Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Since yesterday afternoon I am only able to see one blog on my thread. Any idea what may be wrong? Meanwhile I have not been posting. Been busy with my son's last year of high school.  He is all graduated. I have been working on samples for my friends online shop and quilt shows.

Snow in Portland

Nothing says Chaos more than the anticipation of snow in the Portland Metro area.  Our news people had been talking about snow, earlier in the week for this coming problem...I can still get to Bend to First Friday at Quiltworks and see all of Ann's work- from Cotton and Wool..( I can't remember how to get her blog link here).as the week progressed, there were threats of ice on Saturday...ok...still no problem...if I can get over the mountain, Central Oregon is a breeze as they are prepared for this type of weather..

Well...Wednesday night the forecast changed to snow on Thursday, Friday AND I cancelled my trip...knowing that even if I could get over the mountain on Friday - getting home might be a that....I will wait to see Ann's work.

Here is a photo from this morning.  We have been having high winds, so in some area's, there is no snow, or very little snow, but then in our back yard and driveway, there is.  All I know is that in Portland, the roads become grid locked....took my husband 2 hours to get home from work and he only travels 9 miles one  way.  Took my co-worker 3.5 hours to get home.  I was smart and left early - as I dropped my son off at school - thinking that the snow was not to start til the afternoon.  I left at 11:15 - was to his school at 11:30 and then we were home by noon...and I stopped at the store.  Whew...dodged that mess.

I will just work from home for a couple of hours and then putter around the house and continue stitching on the Flowers quilt that I am working on with a couple of friends.

As you can see, it is not a lot of snow, but enough to shut the city down - and that it did.  LOL

Have a great weekend.  I am off until Tuesday (well...once I do about 3 hours of work)
