Quick Update From Shepherdsville

We made it here safely. We arrived Monday evening just before the ice started to fall. Now we are firmly in the grip of the winter storm that has crossed the country.

We are safe and staying warm, but not without trial and aggravation. Our refrigerator has stopped working. Something has gone haywire with an electrical circuit so most of the plugs in the camper are not working. Our cell phones work only sporadically, and the Internet situation is even worse. The truck is frozen to the ground and the streets are too slick to get out on anyway.

I got out and took a few pictures of the ice and snow that I'll share with you later when the Wi-Fi service is working a little better. But for now, I think I might have a cup of hot tea and take a nap. What else can you do when everything is covered with several inches of ice and snow?

Keep warm and check back soon to see if I've thawed out!

I am so glad that you got there safely. I kinda of wish we would have had freezing weather today so that I could just stay here and veg. for a while. I understand everything going out. My garbage disposal, dishwasher and car have all had big problems this week. I just had the thought this morning "when it rains it pours". Enjoy your time with Rick. I will be waiting to hear from you again.

I am so glad that you made it to your new "home" safely. I hope you get your electrical problems fixed before to long. Enjoy the hot tea. Know that I do not long to be where you are, but I wish I was there to share in that hot tea. Had ice here this morning, but we got up into the 50's today so just about 24hrs of cold weather and we are warming up. Am looking forward to hearing from you again.

Bless your heart. I remember the very week we moved into this house, the frig broke, the stove broke and the well pump broke. Hang in there and try to stay warm. I'll come by your blog tomorrow to see how things are going.

God bless,
