Good morning. More rain this morning. Forecast to turn to snow after lunch. We should get around 8 inches of snow on top of the 12 inches of rain we've already had this week. Mudslides are happening all around us. Hwy 441 across the Great Smoky Mountain National Parkway is closed due to a major mudslide. I love the snow and cold but the flooding and mudslides are no fun.

Have a blessed day everyone. Hope we are eating snowcream for supper.

Have your sister check with the local Elks Lodge. Elks have children's charities that help kids with medical needs, vision screening, hearing screening, etc. at no cost. In California alone, we raised close to $3 million for kids last year. We are the third highest group in the NATION that give out scholarships. Microsoft (via Bill Gates) is #1, and the U.S. government is #2. It used to be the government #1, Elks #2. Let me know if you need any help and I will find out some information for your sister.

My BIL works for Boeing building the 787 and if you've watched the news lately, you'll know that they had some problems. So there boss told them yesterday that there were rumors that they may have to shut the whole line down and layoff 5000 of them while they do a redesign. So my sister is worried because they really can't afford to lose their insurance with my niece having to have the infusions. Hopefully they learn something more today to calm her nerves. Well I'm off to get some stuff done or maybe head back to bed. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

I miss snowcream so much. I am not a vanilla ice cream person (much prefer chocolate) but snowcream is another matter. LOVE it!!! Take care, my friend.

Time for work, and Hubby is out scrapping the car and turning on the heat. Not many days left to work before retirement sets in! LOL

HAPPY MILESTONE DAY!!!!!!!

Also, Happy Thursday! We are getting very close to the weekend now! I will have a four day weekend. Woo hoo!

I cannot believe that next week will be my third week back at college while some people will still be on break. It amazes me! I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I was off from school for over a month.

Off to run some errands, then I really need to catch up on posts. You guys have all been so chatty!

Here's a tip for you: Buy a shave-ice machine, and you can make snowcream anytime you like. I got one as a gift last summer. It comes with little round molds that you freeze ice in; then the ice goes into the machine, which "shaves" the ice into a mound of "snow." Traditionally you put flavored syrups on it, like a snow cone, but instead you can add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla flavoring to it. Tastes like licking the dasher of an old-fashioned ice-cream freezer!
