the calm after the storm

We are here, we arrived safe and sound. The forecast  called for a winterstorm in Southern California in mountain passes we would have to drive through so we left early afternoon Tuesday.  Got here to Prescott after a brief stop at a rest stop (that was not restful at all but that's another story for another day). We arrived here at 6 a.m. Wednesday to a SNOW STORM. I am talking at least 6 inches of snow. Fun unloading the Uhaul, but we did it.

So today it is calm. Sunny, cold, about 23 degrees.

Lots to tell you, pictures to share. Some happy news, silly news, sad news, funny stories.  Those will be in the days ahead.

Trying to keep up reading blogs. Can read fine on the tablet, but hard to comment, that's why sometimes my comments are short (but not so sure how sweet they are).

Furniture arrives Tuesday and with that my desktop computer so life should resume by early next week. In the meantime, Happy New Year, make it a good one.

I've been seeing how bad the weather has been out west....well, bad for towns without salt or snow plows! Glad you made it safely! Wishing you a happy new year!

We actually had snow flurries in Phoenix last night ... not that I was awake to see it. LOL!

Happy New Year!

Glad you made it safe and sound. Burr, it sounds cold. Yes those mountains did get snow that we couldn't believe! Good thing you left earlier.
Happy New Year! Hugs, Debby

We've had a few days of snow, too, and very cold temps! Glad to hear that you arrived safe and sound.

I heard that California snowed for the first time in many years! It must have been really cold! but people were really excited about it.

Have a Happy New Year!

WOW faster than I thought. Glad you all made it safe, but I am surprised at the weather. But I think it is good to shock your body every once in awhile. Besides you have enjoyed S. California too long (smile)
Looking forward to your stories...l

The move is always the hardest part. Once you're there, you can gradually settle back into normalcy.
