Home from Minneapolis


Cyd and I had a horrible time getting home from Minneapolis last night. It started raining sideways with horrible wind about an hour after we started home and then with about an hour left to go we hit a 45 minute wall of water. There was nothing to do but try to keep it between the reflectors. Parts of the road were definitely flooded and they say it was raining 2 to 4 inches per hour. I think it is now one of my top three horrible scary drives ever.

I wanted to show you some of the fun we had though. Above is my new table display. I think it is much brighter. I am not sure I am finished with the changes yet but so far I like it.
Cyd was supposed to hand out candy this weekend and she did a very good job the whole sack was gone by Saturday evening. She is of course all excited as the candy and her hair match the new table cloth although her March Madness outfit kind of clashed.
Saturday night Cyd got into her old ratty bathrobe to have a pajama party with the girls we stayed with, Amy and Tera but all we wanted was the Biofreeze and our beds.

The new display looks inviting. What is biofreeze? Is it like BenGay?

Jeanne no snow but rain and hail that was worse than driving in white out conditions of snow. Road was flooded in areas and in the dark you could not see where.

Sorry to hear you had such terrible driving conditions. Flooding scares me nearly to death, we were in a flash flood when I was about 9 and I still have nightmares about it. LOVE your new table cloth, and Cyd's dress and jewerly!
