Colossians 3:15 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

I indeed have so much to be thankful for. Wife, Home, Children, grandchildren, family, friends, Health, Happiness.
It has snowed for 2 days, hard and steady wet packy snow, last night we lost power and everyone went down to the Community Room, *(we have emergency generator that runs elevator, hallways and community room). We sat around for a few hours, watched it snow, played cards, watched it snow, talked and finally power came back on long enuff to get home and get to bed before it went back off.

This morning I got up, had to clean off car of about 2 feet of snow, did we ever get snow, trees down, branches broke off, wires down, and lots of accidents and a "No Travel advisory posted", I went down and put the "big ole Ham" in the oven at 9AM, Me and Honey sat and watched it snow and snow and snow. NO BIRDS OUT THIS AM!

Weather was so bad the birds stayed hid in the evergreens!!

We set up dining room at 11am with some help, most roads were not plowed very well BUT in the old jeolopy we headed off to pick up the donated dinners for Thanksgiving Dinner today, we got back at 12;30, unloaded the Turkey, taters, squash, dressing, cranberries and pies donated from the 7th Day Adventist Church, set up the tables, our tenants that were going to be alone or just wanted some social time with others started coming in AND in came fresh squash, a green bean salad, fresh baked carrot cake, homemade biskits, after a prayer we had a feast, good conversation and desert.

I ate BUT very carefully and very lightly so I didn't end up sick again!!!

We were "Snowed In", we have had power outages, no phone service, no internet and hopefully it has blown itself out now.

Hoping you had a great "Thanksgiving".

Let us never forget those here at home and in far off places protecting us so we can enjoy days like this.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Wow, that's a lot of snow! And to think, we start grumbling (and get out the jackets) when it falls below 70 degrees here.
