I slept through a silent, soundless night and awoke to this!
This is the view from my bedroom window…HOLY Snow Globe, Quilt Girl! This was not in the forecast!
I was supposed to leave the mountain today ---I have appointments and plans for the rest of the week before flying out on Friday.
Uhhhhh---I can’t get off the mountain! Not in Shamu, and not in weather like this!
The mountain roads are winding, untreated, and a bit treacherous. There are drop offs with no guard rails.
And even if I could make it off our mountain, there is no way to make it up the hill at Pumpkin Run, the road that leads to the highway back home.
I have heard reports of traffic accidents and stalls on the interstates as it is.
Some friends are leaving on a cruise today – and they are stuck in a bad mess somewhere down I-77 between here and Charlotte.
Old Man Winter – you are really getting on my nerves!
This is our ROAD!
There are several inches of powdery white stuff and it was still coming down when we came in from our walk. Sadie was in heaven!
And I have to admit – my inner child came out to play and we had a good walk fluffing through the snow together. I mean – what are you going to do when it snows like this? Really??
Our neighbor in the distance..in his 4 wheel drive –much braver than I!
Oh Quilt Villa! So happy we at least have water!
Sadie having a ball in the snow.
Are you coming in, Mom??
Just one more look at the side yard.
Over our retaining wall and down the road…
No, we are not going to be able to go anywhere. Officially snowed in at the cabin. And thank heavens I have a few more days in my schedule that this will work out just fine.
Temps are supposed to reach 40 tomorrow. The Hubster, who is back at home due to his work schedule said he could come get me in the 4WD pickup tomorrow evening if things are still too bad for me to get the van down the mountain.
I’ll be okay.
I have food, I have running water! I have a snowed in cabin with WIFI!
And all the fabric a girl could want.
And a batch of blocks to continue working on.
This MAY affect Quilt-Cam for Wednesday Evening. I’ll let you know. Hopefully if I get home at a decent time we can still do it, and then I have Thursday for tying up loose ends for leaving for Florida on Friday.
Enjoy your day, everyone!
