Whew! I thought we's goina get blown away last night!!
Yesterday this was over 8 in. of snow. But this morning this wind had blown til you could see the grass. It was laying in drifts around the house.
Our daughter and sil made it safely back home today. I'm thankful. They have to go thru "The Gorge" on I40 into TN. It was down to one lane and this evening the powers that be were strongly urging people to take an alternate route.
My son got into a cooking mood today. He started looking for a peanut butter pie recipe in an older Betty Crocker cookbook and found this one instead. This is his first time making a pie! He did a good job. It is yummy!
Good with whipped topping on it.
