This is the most snow I've ever seen in my life! After living in Florida for 30 some years, I'm shocked at how much snow can come down. We've had over 20 inches in 3 days, and it keeps coming and coming and coming.

On the positive side, I had a fantastic time with my 3 grandkids in Ohio this past week. Coming back on the bus, we got held up for a long time due to the Ohio Turnpike being closed. Several large accidents tied up traffic. We also passed numerous accidents, cars and trucks in ditches. So glad I wasn't the bus driver! The delay on the Ohio Turnpike meant I missed my connection in Detroit. Spent the night in Detroit, and arrived home the next day to discover that our entire side of the state had roads that resembled frozen popsicles---or ice skating rinks. Our neighborhood was unplowed, so we went careening through the streets like a bucking bronco until we finally reached home.

So thankful that we didn't end up in an accident or in the ditch.

Loving my new elliptical! Going to start posting my workouts to keep me accountable.

Stay warm everyone!

    I'm glad you got home safely!

    It does seem to be a snowier winter than normal; at least, we got more snow this past week than we usually get in such a short period of time, and it is also one of the coldest.

    This is the kind of winter we had in my youth; if it wasn't below zero, it was snowing! I'm counting the days until the worst of this is over, it's coming!!

    I'm glad you had a nice time with grandchildren and returned home safely!
