"When you come to the edge of all that you know, you must believe one of two things: there will be earth upon which to stand, or you will be given wings to fly." author unknown
It's that time of the year....

OK, Here’s the story…
I have been listening to the weather on the scanner and TV. Central Illinois is to “get a storm of historical proportions, the like of which has never before been seen in central Illinois.” Freezing rain first with up to 1/2 inch ice accumulation to be followed by snow at the rate of 3 or more inches per hour to exceed 20 or more inches. Heavy winds has caused this storm to be listed as a blizzard.
Of course this meant another run by the store this morning to get the things I forgot yesterday. The store was wall to wall people with the carts piled high with all kinds of stuff. What worries me the most about this storm is that the power might go out. That would be tragic as the temps are to fall below zero on Wednesday.
I guess you all know what all I will be doing. I will be on a goodie making spree as that is what calms me down when I get anxious.
When I was out this morning I stopped by Bergners and bought a birthday gift for my great, great niece. she will be 2 years old in March. Lots of good buys at Bergners today. I bought a darling little pink angel top and pants, $40 for $8. Nothing for myself as I bought a jacket and 2 tops last week.
I hope the sun is shining wherever you are today. It sure isn’t here.
