The weather man predicted our area would get between 1-4 inches of snow along with some ice on Friday and Saturday. Instead, we got sleet and freezing rain on Friday. After the freezing rain, it started raining really hard and continued until late Friday night. Thank goodness, Mike stayed home and worked from home using his laptop. The water and sleet froze and everything was covered in ice. It was soo pretty. Quite a few people in Tennessee and North Mississippi lost power but we were blessed not to. Saturday we stayed home. The kids played the Wii most of the day while I nursed a sinus headache and pressure.
Sunday, we went to church and enjoyed the beautiful scenery as we drove. The trees, bushes, grass and power lines were covered in ice. The sun made everything shine, like they were covered in diamonds. It was stunning!! Ernie's message was wonderful as was Marty's Sunday school lesson on the first part of Revelation 7. After church, we went to lunch at Back Yard Burger. Towards the end of our meal, the power went out. It looked like maybe a transformer went down because we could see nearby traffic lights were also out. As we were leaving, the traffic lights started working again.
Once we got home, Hannah and I got to work going through some boxes we had in the attic. Most of them were toys that had been relegated to the attic about three or four years ago. (Hannah loss the use of her toys when she got into trouble; now, I don't remember the exact reason why.) Mike found a box of books for Hannah to read that I had as a child. They include Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, The Dana Girls, and Bobbsey Twins. There were even some of my Little House books!! I can't wait to read them again. While Hannah and I were busy, Mike reswept the kitchen and mopped it. Busy, busy, busy!!
