finally home

I am finally home!

The Hubby and I just got in from what was supposed to be a 10 hour drive from North Carolina yesterday. We drove for as long as we could into the snow storm, but after 12 hours- 2 of them dead stop in Pennsylvania due to multiple accidents and downed trees- we decided to get a hotel for the night and let the storm pass and the roads thaw out a bit before we drive the rest of the way. Apparently everyone else had the same idea cuz we got the last room! This morning the roads were clear and it only took us 2 hours to go the rest of the way.

We have a lot of cleanup to do. Not a lot of snow shoveling, but because most of the trees still had leaves on them the heavy wet snow piled on and pulled down lots of branches. 2 huge ones came down from some big pine trees at the side of our house. They completely flattened our bushes and just missed our grill. I am so happy nothing came down on our house or my car! I still can't believe we got this much snow in October! I was told that we haven't had this much this early since the Civil War. That is just crazy!

I will be back a little later after the clean up. I have so many of your posts to read (been having withdrawal) and gonna post about my trip.



  1. Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog :) Good luck with the snow shovelling!! I know that it must be a pain but it sounds incredibly lovely to an Aussie girl!

  2. I'm so glad your house and car made it through unscathed! That would definitely not have made for a pleasant homecoming. Be careful cleaning up!

  3. Thanks we were careful. I do love snow, but it's no fun cleaning up after a long car ride.


It is always exciting finding new comments! I really love knowing you were here!
