traveling through snow

Yesterday my DH and I headed from KC to south of St Louis. We left at 5:30 am and knew that they were forecasting heavy snow for KC.  We  had to get down there and back.  We were making good time  until we got back to Oak Grove and from then on what should have taken us and hour to get home turned into  about a 2 1/2 hour drive. Cars were going about 30-35 miles and hour on I-70. We heard that I-70 was closed west of Topeka and I-29 was closed north of St Joe. Both because of 30 car pile ups.  We didn’t have any problems until we got in our driveway, the snow had drifted so deep in front of the garage that we had to make about 5 runs at it before we made it into the garage.  But we made it!!

I took my mystery quilt with me and hand sewed the binding down in the car. It is now finished except for the label.  Yeah!!!  I put it on the bed when we got home and we slept under it. I used a wool batting.  I like it.

Anyway, that’s it for my exciting travel day. I’m glad we made it home and I’m glad my mystery quilt is done.

Have a great day and drive safely if you’re traveling for the holidays.
