East Coast Ice and Snow Storm

redholidaytreeGood morning everyone! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent the weekend doing a lot of work online and taking care of a sick husband.

Today’s post will be short, simple and sweet since we got hit again with another snow & ice storm yesterday and last night. Some light snow is coming down on top of the ice. It is like a sandwich out there right now because first we had a few hours of snow…then several hours of freezing rain/ice and now light snow again. Our power is out (as usual) and I am on battery power and need to hurry along today before my laptop says goodnight. Hubby and I need to invest in a generator once our income taxes come back next year.

We had a few giveaways close late last night so we do have winners to announce this morning. As always, we spend time every morning validating entries, trashing out the cheater entries and then randomly select a winner using random.org. We then double check that persons entry to make sure it’s legit and then finalize it.

Winner of the FreeHands Giveaway: Stephen A.
Winner of the Love My Gems Giveaway: Robin Wilson
Winner of the Shorties Candles Giveaway:  Susan Smith

Congratulations! I will try to get the winner’s emails out before my computer says no more! Have a great Monday…brrr I am freezing here today!

    A belated congratulations to the 3 winners. I am sure they will love their prizes.
    We also got hit by the storm, but luckily the ice was not that bad, and the snow was only a couple of inches. Since you said that the power outages have happened numerous times maybe you should try to invest sooner in a generator. You don’t want to become ill from trying to live in an unheated house.

    Stay warm and safe. I hope your husband gets feeling better soon. Take care of yourself.

    We got hit with a storm in Texas, too. Luckily, the power didn’t go out. My daughter’s school was closed today and Friday. It opens back up tomorrow. We moved here a little over a year ago from California. I had no idea that the weather in Norther Texas was so severe! We went from one day being in the 70′s to the next day being in the 30′s!

    I hope your weather improves and that you get power back soon. We actually lost power on thanksgiving just after everyone had eaten for about 3 ours and had to get cozy with a fire and all our camping gear.it has been uncharacteristically cold in southeast Texas too, and it is not even winter yet.

    Hope this finds you warm and cozy and WITH power again. Thank you so much! I am thrilled to be a winner!
