Quilt With Us

Would someone please explain to me why anyone would like this white stuff that I am looking at?
We got another 4-5" last night and then it turned to sleet and ice. Nice part about being retired is we don't have to go out in it. It is only the beginning of January and this is our 5th or 6th storm already...going to be a long winter. Oh well, that gives me more time to do some quilting..and maybe decrease the piles of UFO's that are taking over my sewing room.
Have a great day everyone!

I'm with you Mariellen. I lived in Massachusetts most of my life (Salem) and recently moved to southeastern Virginia. I absolutely love it! My family is still up there and I love listening to them when the weather is bad. We had a wind storm blow through last night but at least we don't have to worry about slippery roads all the time. I have been told it can get bad here, but when it does everything shuts down and it doesn't happen too often.

South Deerfield? I took a trip to Yankee Candle when a friend was living out that way. What a treat - I loved it!

Sorry, but I'll take the snow any day. Seems like in Ohio the last few years we've had more rain than snow in the winter, and I hate rain. At least with snow I can go outside and play with the dogs, and yes, I am a grown woman, but there is something fun about bundling up and running around like a fool. I think I like snow because it brings out the child in me. So any snow you don't want you just send my way, I'll be glad for it!

I love the snow, but that is because I have fond memories of it as a kid and I've lived in Arizona and California for the past 47-48 years. I miss the fun and beautiful part of it, but since I was a kid of nearly 12 y.o. when we moved west, I didn't have the work or driving (scary!) part to contend with.

As a counterpoint, who wants to live where we have such horrendous heat so many months of the year? Many say "but it's a dry heat" as if that makes it cooler. Humid or dry...120-125 is unbearably hot and air conditioning can only reduce the ambient temps about 20-25 degrees. So I have my friends send me pictures of the snow and dream of being cold enough to sit in front of a crackling fire with a cup of chamba chai tea latte while working on a big quilt spread over my lap and legs.

No matter where we live there is a downside and the grass looks greener elsewhere. It would be ideal if you could live here during the winters and I could live there during the summers. Maybe someday...........
