Today was an odd day. Starting just after midnight our cold snap broke and the temperature began to rise. This morning found us in the middle of a beautiful snow fall, I know I have been complaining but it truly was a beautiful site. By noon it had warmed up to 41 and the snow switched to rain. By 2 p.m. The sun was shining and it was a glorious warm afternoon. By 6 p.m. The wind was getting quite blustery and now we are back to rain showers and around 34 degrees. The old adage “if you don’t like the weather just wait a minute” sure rang true today!
I had such big ambitions today to get things done but once again I was side tracked-my attention span is about as long as each sentence, but you have probably noticed that already. My friend Cathy and I refer to those moments as “squirrel” meaning the squirrel ran by and diverted our attention. No real squirrels are ever harmed during these episodes- (giggle).
Speaking of Cathy she scared the daylights out of me today, texted me she was involved in a car accident. Now many of you know Cathy is very dear to me-sisterly love kind of dear so my initial reaction was fear then anger. After I heard the details I just wanted to cry. Thankfully she is alright but she sure went through a lot in just a few seconds. Let me explain, Cathy has MS and is in a wheel chair. She was in her wheelchair in the back of the van with her husband driving and sees a vehicle coming at them and knows that it isn’t going to stop-imagine yourself in that situation! Scary!!!! They were hit in the rear drivers side back where she is a passenger. I thank God for watching over her today as it could of been much worse. Cathy, I know your gonna read this and please don’t be mad but you know I have to put everything to words to deal with it. I only wish I could be there for you now.
Today reminded me how life can be changed in a split second. I hope all of you take a minute to hug those you love and tell them daily how much you love them.
Well it is getting late and there are still animals to check on so I will bid you all a good night and I pray you are home safe and sound, surrounded by those you love. God Bless and Good Night

I have a friend like Cathy and I thank God for her every day…Her name is Mary.
Hi, I just finished reading this and yes snow is very pretty an relaxing. As far as being in an accident, yes it was very scary and yes life can change in a split second. Luckily my husband an I appear to be okay, but my handicap van that I need to be able to have to go anywhere, will have to go in and be repaired. So far estimate is about $5000. I have Physical Therapy 2 times a week until the 9th of April plus other doctors appointments, so this should be interesting. Guess everything will work out, as I will just be optimistic. Thanks Early for you and your families concern, people living in Alaska just need to learn when the roads are so icy, SLOW DOWN.
I know it’s a pain getting the van fixed and dealing with all that comes with it but so thankful you guys are okay. I don’t know what I would do on those days that make me crazy without you to help me sort them out!
