Thanksgiving Ice Storm

I had forecasted 90 days ago that there would be snow for Thanksgiving.    It is an old wives tale or something that I read in the Farmer’s Almanac that when you have your first fog you will have your first snow in 90 days (it didn’t say anything about an ice storm!).  That foggy morning, I grabbed the calendar and counted ahead 90 days.  Great, it was Thanksgiving Day.  The day that my loving family would be here for dinner.  Thankfully Thanksgiving Day was the best travel day of the Holiday.  We stayed home for most of the holiday weekend, eating leftovers, playing games, and enjoying being together.  Chris, Courtney, Caden and Camryn are now home safe and sound, our home is quiet, Wylie is resting….. I think I will join him!

We missed the ones who weren’t able to be here with us, I love you my family!!
