9 Inches and Counting

It sure is pretty isn't it? I refuse to complain about the amount of snow today. I am redirecting my negative thoughts into positive thoughts for the victims of those awful storms in the South yesterday, as I write this 49 people have lost their lives. It looks like those storms are headed farther east today. God bless those people.

The news said some of the tornadoes came at night, that brought back memories of what my mom used to say to me. She said tornadoes never come at night! I think parents will tell their children ANYTHING to get them to go to bed!! I also remember about being told if you hear the sound of a train coming - take cover, it is a tornado. Well, being from a railroad family I always listened for a train whistle!!! I wasn't the brightest kid!

That is such a pretty picture. It is alway so nice to take pictures of the snow. It certainly has been a terrible winter everywhere. It is so awful about the storms in the south. Stay safe and warm

What a pretty picture! I can see where the 6 to 10 inches forecasted for my area actually fell. We only got a couple of inches.

My heart goes out to those tornado victims too. I'm hoping that there's no more weather like that for anyone today.

I LOVE the snow! We've been getting a lot here, too, I'm in northern Illinois.

Your quilts are just beautiful!
