Haven't done much since Christmas just recuperating. I don't know why I should be so tired I didn't do much had so much help both days. So I'm thinking it's this beautiful ice cold weather making me want to hunker down in big old sweats and read or just watch YouTube stuff.
I know that quite a few folks who read my blog are travelers but some aren't or do occasional trips. But I just want to put out a bit of cautions since some may be traveling just for the holiday. A Face Book friend of mine got caught in a terrible storm on I 40 in NM yesterday and spent 7 hrs stranded no moving at all just sitting on the road with hundreds of other stranded motorist. Luckily she had a full tank of gas and some food with her. But no blankets, she did OK since she was able to run her car heater. Take caution when traveling the roads this time of year even if it is the Southeast or Southwest. The weather is crazy this year and storms and freezing temp are the new norm it seems. Please before you leave your home no matter how close your traveling be prepared. Carry blankets, try to keep your gas tank full and carry food and lots of water, maybe even a thermos of hot coffee, tea or hot chocolate. It could save your life and those that may be with you. She was finally able to move around midnight and there weren't any motels that had rooms until she reached Amarillo, TX. at 5 am, the motel didn't charge her for the night since she didn't get there until morning and she is spending another night there to regroup and pick up some blankets and restock. She is also traveling with 2 dogs.
It has been freezing cold here and had another rain storm pass through Sunday night. I'm not complaining I have turned around to being a cold weather person again, maybe that's because it isn't accompanied by snow. It was in the mid 20's last night and didn't even reach 50 for the high today. Calling for 31 tonight but we shall see. I have been bringing in the humming bird feeder after dark and getting it out as soon as I wake up in the morning.
Good Night All
