    Ron it sounds a lot more positive than it did yesterday. I hope she continues to improve. She is in my prayers as you and your wife are too.

    Snow on a normal day we might have decided to leave tomorrow…our original plans..to miss the traffic on Wed. But….

    with all of that traffic headed in the same direction I am hearing about a lot of accidents on the interstates so we will give everyone a chance to get where they are going. I was born and lived in Upstate NY for 40 years before I got out of there…used to drive 38 miles to work every morning..never missed a day for snow. We don’t plan to come home until Monday when the traffic will be lighter.

    Charlie we were supposed to leave tomorrow for NY but plans have changed. One niece said: “We ONLY got 6″ of snow today….well when you have lived in the south as long as we have and no snow tires that is a lot. Plus we heard the interstates going up through VA and PA are a hot mess of cars…don’t need to get into that.

    Charlene I didn’t send you a card but I sure did say a lot of prayers for you and Larry~I am so happy to see you home again, you may have lost some of your insides but you sure didn’t lose any of your caring or sense of humor! Now just take it easy so you will be ready for time to start seeds and work in the greenhouse.

    I posted last night and it must be in outer space somewhere. Wow they sure have their plates full. They say God will never give you more than you can handle but sometimes I wonder about that. Prayers for the entire family to get through these times.

    Sue…thanks for the information. We are hoping to leave here on Friday if the roads are clear. One of our “kids” that lived with us when we were there is in terrible shape with cancer, since he was the “brother” for my girls we need to see him before it is too late. We will not leave here unless we know the roads are clear and nothing coming along behind it on Monday. So if you can let me know what those days will be like? I am going to save the link you sent to me and hope that will keep us informed that way too.

    Leroy how tragic for your family! I have heard that saying before and until I went through it I actually believed it. But this is so much more than that. I will keep you and your family in my prayers, especially that the clinical trial will work for him.

    Tina I was happy to get on here and find you had opened it. That is not MY job it is whoever gets here early and wants to do it. I have been a slug lately and haven’t been up as early as I do in the summer.  I don’t think anyone “owns” any thread on this board.

    Good morning all….I am late getting here either my computer or the board is not wanting to wake up this morning. I was just watching the news and it doesn’t look good for my trip to NY this week! It doesn’t make sense to take a chance on the weather so I will take my turkey out of the freezer and get it thawed to cook on Thurs.  I have a lot of things to do today before the bottom falls out of the temps tonight. And I have to get to the church this evening to help set up tables and decorations for the dinner Wed. evening.

    I have not even started Christmas Cards yet, in fact I was so late last year I didn’t get them sent out.  I seemed to get more things done when I was  working, now I put things off until it is too late.

    I am hoping to see that Charlene made it home.

    It has taken me so long to get this done…granddogs came in for their “Granny Snacks” and the cat came in for his breakfast too. They insist on instant service :)

    Have a wonderful day everyone. Prayers for all who need them.

    I have bean soup cooking, unfortunately I made enough for 5 people so some will end up in the freezer.

    Melissa if my back was as bad as yours (and I think it WAS) get that appointment with the chiropractor…I waited thinking I could get better myself but I didn’t. One trip to her and she worked miracles, I had 3 treatments before she would let me go over the Thanksgiving week without one. In order for my meds to make me feel better it caused a lot of bruising on my skin. I looked like I had been in a huge fight and lost!

    Charlene I hope the roads are good enough for you to get home but I know you will be smart enough not to try it on slick roads.

    Sue I am listening to the weather right now as is DD.  I am thinking I will get the turkey out of the freezer that I bought “just in case” and keep us home! We had already decided to wait one more day but it looks like it won’t happen at all. I know there will be some disappointed people but better to be disappointed than dead! Thanks to all of you watching out for this
    I do have to get to town this morning to get some dog food and things that we need anyway.

    I hope Charlene had a better night and of course will keep her and the family in our prayers as well as Ron and his family. Whatever you plan for today I hope you stay safe.
