Can We Say....Enough!!!

Today we were supposed to transition into warmer weather and rain. The following will not look like that to you! This morning the temps were up above freezing, so I decided to take our reliable Jeep Wrangler to the mall and see what after Christmas sales are all about! I've only been one other time - many years ago, and thought since a lot of folks weren't getting out because of the snow, that maybe it wouldn't be too crowded. I was right, however because so many freight deliveries have been delayed by our huge amount of snowfall, the sales to be had were miniscule! REI said they hadn't gotten any of their Fed Ex deliveries, and their shelves definitely reflected that! But I did manage to find some good snow boots at 40% off at another store and scored a couple of other good deals!

When I got home, this began to fall! This is looking out our front porch.

Here is my car -- it hasn't left that spot for over a week. If you could see the other side, you would see a huge pile of snow from the plows that have gone down the street.
And this great shot is from our upstairs landing looking across the street!
I also stopped at our local quilt shop. They were having a 25% off everything in the store sale. Believe it or not, I came home empty-handed! There wasn't much inventory, let alone anything I couldn't live without. Perhaps they've had trouble with deliveries, too! This weekend I plan to visit Keepsake Cottage in Country Village, where I'm most certain I will leave some cash behind!

More snow?? Wow, I have Florida like weather compared to you even though I live in NC. Sunny and in the 50's. I went out in the crowds today. Found some pretty good deals too.

We've had weather like yours all week too, but it's expected here and not there! When you go to Country Village be sure and hit up that cute country store across the parking lot from the quilt shop. I love that store.

Wow, so much snow. Don't know that I'd brave it to go out. So far we are post-Christmas slugs.

I wanted to get out yesterday for some boxing day shopping as well. I need some winter boots. Hubby did his best to dig but it wasn't happening. Today the car is dug out, so I plan to hopefully get a deal on boots too. Oh buy some fabric for me too!!...LOL

Oh how sad! You must have gotten all our snow. We were planning to take our kids sledding in their new sled, but alas, not enough snow to sled in.

Great shopping potentials but my friend, oh my friend, I don't want to go out in that. I'll stay home though and keep a log on the fire, okay? I'll even cook up something. I mean, I'm thinkin' Mr. Squash should be outside shoveling snow anyway!
