Just a quick note to let you know that I made it to my mother's late this afternoon!
Oh, don't let the casual tone of my voice fool you.
I could have been killed!

I was quite fine until I got to Ft. Wayne, Indiana, on my way to my sister, Joan's, last night.
Then I could see snow on the ground, it was really windy so snow was blowing across the highway and I couldn't see the road at times and I was driving in the dark.
A lone woman.

I got to Angola where my sister lives and then I almost hit an unsuspecting car stopped at a light.
Oh, it wasn't that I was traveling too fast for the conditions or texting while drove (I'm too old to even try). I drive a convertible and I told Frank the Tank that my car was too light to drive in the snow.

I was right.

But, God loves me so much he got me to mom's this afternoon.
Oh, once again, my casual tone is deceiving.
I could have been killed.
It was snowing so hard that sometimes everything looked white.

And it's cold up here.
I wanna go home.
I'm holding off my final opinion that you have got to be nuts to live in this weather until I've been here a bit longer.
You see, I grew up here until I left for college in Oklahoma in '71.
But, I'm thinking old people should all live in Texas.
In fact, we've got our guest house for rent.
If you're old, then you should seriously consider moving to Texas.
You can live on the ranch with us.
It was 75 there today.

I've got wonderful pictures of purchases I made in an antique mall in Noblesville, Indiana, on the way up here.
I'll get them posted tomorrow:)

Whew! I'm glad to hear that you were not killed! Glad you made it safely and can't wait to see what you got. ~Mindy

I'm almost killed everytime I get behind the wheel up here so stop telling all your other best friends about the guest house. Man, the pressure...75 above 0? Why am I clinging to the Northwoods like a tic (I have Lymes, so summer isn't any better).
Glad you arrived safe, sound and full of antiques and thingys, I have a sister Joan too, she's a missionary/Pastor's wife.
Give mom a big hug and one for you too. God was keeping you in the palm of His He always will.
Love you,

Hi Jan! Glad to hear you are safe and sound! I want to live in Texas especially when it is 35 degrees here! And my cute Grandma Hazel is there! Take care! Amy

So glad you arrived safe and sound (eek!). Did you leave space in the car to bring mama home, or did you fill it up with crafting bags and newly shopped items en route?! haha x
