More Joseph Jars

Oh my, but the weather is frightful here! We ventured out in a little snow yesterday to get crafting supplies in the "Big City". Erie is normally 1 1/2 hours away. We got there without trouble. Coming home was a completely different story. A hard lake effect snow hit us just as we got there. We could actually see the lake "sucking" up the water from the escarpment. What a lovely drive home we had! Traveling at 40 MPH on the Interstate and following the path of the cars ahead was not fun! Even worse, I had to drive. Talk about nerve wracking. Once off the main road it was even slower going. Luckily it's only about 8 miles from 86 to our house.
Saddest part of the whole trip was the craft stores were wiped out. I didn't get half the stuff on my list. I should have stayed home and ordered online!

In a moment of clearer thinking, I listed a few more of my candle jars. There is a whole shelf of naked jars waiting my attention. It's on my "to do" list.

Hope you are safe and warm where you are. I'm freezing my patootie off!

We are having quite the cold weather up here too. Yesterday it was -19F without the wind and -36F with the wind. It was a good day to stay in the house :)

I truly feel for all of you in the "colder" areas. I am NOT a winter person and find today's temps here in the Mid-Atlantic (windchill of 0!) most upsetting. I spoke with family in the Midwest today and found they have 29" of snow on the ground and a windchill of -31! makes it sound warm and cozy here!
