Life Gets in the Way

It's been a topsy-turvy week here on the East coast! One week ago today we had a freak snowstorm that dumped a lot of heavy snow, bringing down power lines and lots of trees. My street is three blocks long, and when the builder developed this area 25 years ago, he lined the street with Bradford pear trees. It was a beautiful sight in the spring, when they were white with blossoms, as well as late fall, when they turned a beautiful cranberry red. Sadly, fourteen trees came down in the storm. Our road was impassable for 24 hours, until people could get out with chain saws. So many people were without heat and electric, and some still are. My in-laws came to stay with us for 36 hours until they got their power back. Needless to say, there was nothing like a "normal" schedule at my house.

I had a class last night, and while I was scrambling with last minute preparations, I realized I had not prepared my sketch card. Me bad! :-(

Check back later today if you have time. Meanwhile, you can find the list of participants over at the Diva blog.

See you later!
