Women of the bible, snow and CELTIC SOLSTICE!

The women of the bible block – Lot’s wife is done.

Just like last year I tried to find fabrics that looked like salt Winking smile but that was kind of tricky with my color scheme, but the blue with dots does look like salt right?

Yesterday we got a bit more snow and ice overnight so everyone stayed at home.

The snow was no JOKE Wednesday, I have to show this link from our local news channel.

When I started seeing the snow on Wednesday I called my husband to come home, the snow had not started at his work yet though but he has a 45min drive home and they said the night before that once it starts, it would come down fast! He arrived after 1hr or so. His co workers left 1hr after him and were stuck on the roads for 3-4hrs! my neighbor’s daughter left her work at noon and didn’t make it home until 7pm!


Today there’s still snow on the ground but I think the roads are okay and he took my car/suv to work with 4WD, plus he’ll pick up our friends at the airport now who were stuck in NY for a day (hotel paid- so not too bad!)
