    Bless you!!! I sympathize with you. We had ours in November and hope that was it for
    the next hundred years, (yea, right). We were lucky tho in our area, no power out.
    Hang in there and hope it will pass quickly.

    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    I feel your pain. Last winter we got 18 inches in twenty four hours! Usually we only get a couple inches per winter so this was crazy weather for us. Stock up on coca and stay warm. I am praying for you. Here is a picture of our snow at about 11:00 am and it had only stopped for a few minutes. The ruler is a twelve inch and within an hour it was covered!

    Loving the TWO days off due to storm! I plan to sew and if the power goes out, I'll clean (ya, maybe) or knit.Like a mini vacation.
    Please stay safe all you QBers that make my life special. Oh by the way use the gorgeous fabri dyed in the snow for an art quilt. Looks hot so maybe a sunset or a spectacular sunset. so many ways.
    Each project adds to my stash of knowledge. Love sharing the results with anyone who'll look.

    I wish all the trains with empty cargo carriers back east would load them all up with snow and bring them to central Texas or California to dump the load, then go back east for more. That would help the dry states and maybe lessen (ever so slightly) the floods the easterners are expecting with warm temps and all that snow melt.

    Hopefully you have enough fabric to keep you busy.

    Thanks for the offer of snow balls, but we have enough of our own. The little covering of snow on out driveway keeps melting and freezing. I think it's ready for ice skating now. Glad my car is in the garage!!! DH's truck is in the driveway, and I worry about him falling and breaking something. I fell last year and really bumped my head--gave me 2 black eyes, but no head injury and no broken bones--Just looked bad for a week or so. Don't want a repeat, so I think I will stay in the house. Stay safe and inside. That is a lot of snow to shovel. Please be careful.

    Put all of those gorgeous quilts on top of and on the sides of and all over your freezers. We packed our freezer in sleeping bags the last time that we lost power for any time. DO NOT open it. The only thing that I lost were a few popsicles and we were without power for several days.

    I confess I'm jealous. I love the silence that descends on the world during a storm and the way the world comes to a halt. Once the snow is done falling, I will be thrilled that we were not affected, but today I wish I was up north.

    I just read some reports about the blizzard hitting all of you 'back East', as we say here. Please take care of yourselves and be careful!!!! Thank goodness the snow we had was an unusually calm with no wind...a rarity in the Texas panhandle! I hope all of you kept some of those quilts for your own warmth.

    Yes, I too pine for Massachusetts. Miss the snow and miss family. I remember the Blizzard of '78- was finishing my last semester in college while traveling on a community health nursing assignment. Took 4 hours to travel a 30 minute ride. As years passed by and more winter weather came its way, I remember walking 1 mile to get to work as a critical care/ trauma nurse in a blizzard. Those were the days.

    If there's an overwhelming demand for more snowballs, i have plenty of the ingredients here in NH as well. Our first snow day this school year. It's been very relaxing so far! Stay safe, everybody!

    Well, got about 26 inches of snow, but not good for snowballs, too fluffy - sorry not able to fill orders! - LOL

    Thankfully no power outage, but lots of snow at end of driveway to move! My state, Connecticut, expected wide spread power outages, but we ended up with very few throughout the state. The utility company had even called in help from other states, but released them to go back home at about noon yesterday. Lots of things in my area still closed today to get things cleaned up. (southeastern part of state)
