I'll get to our weather in a minute. Art skated out and got the mail today and came in with some exciting news. I don't know if any of you heard this but Barney, George and Laura Bush's dog passed away on Feb 3rd. He was sooooo cute. The girls and I loved to watch Christmas at the White House every year just to see Barney. Miss Beasley, his play mate was cute too. I was so sad to hear that he had died. He was only twelve but had been battling Lymphoma and he couldn't fight it any longer. I don't care if you are a King, Queen, President, Hobo or one of us, when you loose a pet it hurts. And those that love dogs and have been through this know what you are going through. So I sent them a pet sympathy card. I never expected any kind of reply to a card but this came today. Art comes in and says, "got a card from George W Bush." like that happens all the time here. I was a little more excited, having never received anything from a President before.
The weather ended up not being "quite" as bad as we had originally feared. The drive way was a sheet of ice this am but we didn't loose power. They flickered a couple of times last night and I thought, "well here we go" but they didn't go off. They said on the news this morning that there were mutiple accidents, but none seemed serious. I know there were numerous flights canceled at the airport, but since we weren't going anywhere, it didn't bother us. We stayed put! Not going to risk falling and ruining our future plans.
Thank for all the comments on the weather, and I want to welcome the new followers to the blog. Hope you all enjoy our adventures, and I would love to hear from you!!
Best wishes to all from Indiana
