    Last night I braved the crowds at Walmart to get 1.) coffee and 2.) thread. I'm a happy quilter today.

    We're snowed in today, too. And possibly for the next 2 days, also. We went to Kroger yesterday after church, and there wasn't much left on the shelves, especially meats. We're retired, so we don't have to get out much, but being cooped up in the house gets on my DH's nerves. Me, I just sew and read the quilting board!

    I used to live near Knoxville at Johnson Bible College. Wonderful town. Enjoy being snowed in---it doesn't last all that long there. The year I was there it snowed one time, about 4-6 inches, just enough to build some awesome snowmen and small snow sculptures but we had to use all the available snow to make them. They began to melt two days later and were gone in 4.

    Also snowed in here in the Atlanta area. I find it comforting to have nothing else to do but be inside keeping warm with my coffee and quilting or a good book.

    We got a little over 8 inches of the white stuff. Around 2:30 this morning I got up and it was really coming down. After I got up at 7 I had to shovel a path on the deck so I could put the 8 bird feeders out. Have an hour later I heard a thump and went out to find a small bird in the snow. He had hit the window. So I shoveled a path to him, picked him up (just dazed) and brought him in so I could find a box to put him in. I put some rags in a shoebox and covered him and put him out next to the BBQ grill. I checked on him a couple of times and then he was gone. Did my good deed for the day. Love the snow....no so much the ice.

    Thinking the same thing but these e-mails keep coming in keeping me tied to the computer to read these posts.

    I guess you Northerners laugh about being "snowed in" with just 3" of snow - but the whole south STOPS when it snows. I'm expected to do nothing but quilt. And I'm in the middle of a project that I'm SOOOOOOOOO excited about!

    I guess if I want a snow day I should move to the south! We get plenty of snow, but we also have the equipment to move it.

    We need several feet before we are considered snowed in LOL and so far this winter we haven't had more than 3-4 inches. Enjoy your time quilting

    I'm just west of Knoxville on the Plateau. We have around 6 inches and my husband has 4 wheel drive. He took me to work then went back to the house. His work was canceled.

    Sadly, along the SC coast, we only have a slight dusting of snow. I was hoping for more, but am happy that, so far, the ice has left us alone!
