Hi, How'dy, How are ya?

Welcome to "The Country Schoolmarm"! Get yourself a cup of coffee (I take mine strong with vanilla creamer), grab a seat, and chat a while! Isn't that what country friends do? Now, all we need is a porch...

You are all so kind...

Thank you all for your prayers!  Here in Lancaster, PA, I am fine.  My family and home are fine.  I need to inspect the house now that it is light out. God's hand of protection was very evident.

Wind, rain, and snow flurries are still on the "menu" for today and possibly tomorrow.

What a storm!  I have never felt wind like that!  It was so scary! I was looking out of our French doors to the deck last night.  The wind was gusting against the doors so much that I could feel them moving.  I wasn't sure that they would stay closed even with the deadbolt.  So this genius continued to look out the window to see if any trees would snap. DUH!  They did look like they were doing Yoga positions. 

The changes in pressure made my ear hurt so much. It felt like it would explode.  This was because of my cold and then extreme low pressure. 

We also have 7 inches of rain at this point. I also had a furry barnacle attached to me at all times.  Such a good, furry little buddy.  But, those are all minor in contrast to what you see others have suffered in other places.

Storm is not done yet.  Still wind, rain, and now snow showers!  Yikes! Thank you for your continued prayers for the East Coast! God is in control is a "very present help in our time of trouble".

Thanks again for your love and concern! Time to get some coffee!
