She’s a young, energetic 20 year old. Life has been good to her for all of her 20 years until now. Suddenly and without warning, Mother Nature left her homeless. Without her vehicle and a useless , lifeless cellphone, she huddled under blankets to keep herself warm in the freezing temperatures. Thankfully, she has food, …her pet fish passed away from the cold so she savored his life by …..
Ok, NO, Rachel didn’t eat her pet fish that died. Sorry. Rachel is homeless and without her car right now though. Verizon’s cellphone tower went down which rendered her phone useless.
She’s ok though. Rachel shares an off-campus apartment with a friend of hers down in California, Pa. Their area was hard hit by last Friday’s snowstorm and their power is still out. Her car is buried under 2 feet of snow and even if it were dug out, she wouldn’t drive it because little mustangs just don’t like snow especially on snow-covered and icy roads.
She does have her cell phone service back now, thankfully, and she’s staying with friends in the area until her power is restored.
I did laugh with her last night though because she certainly could easily be a homeless girl living on the streets. All she needs is a shopping cart to hold her earthly possessions.
Needless to say, I’ve been extremely concerned and worried but she’s one tough cookie. It has been tough for her but she’s managing without complaining or whining … Although I think she might yell at me for hinting that she ate her pet fish, Pete. :)
Here in Western Pa, it’s snowing now with weather predictions of another 6-10 inches on top of our 22 inches that we already have. The roads are still in terrible condition around here from the last snow hit. I just can’t imagine what it’s going to be like after we get even more.
All you folks up there in the northern states that are used to getting massive amounts of snow, should send all your snow crews down here to teach these municipals how to clear snow. I’ve been in Worcester, Mass after a big snowstorm and it’s just like another day for them. We need their snow-clearing experts down here.
Ok here’s what I’ve been doing over the weekend …
I still have to stitch the backing on yet but this will be my next pattern release. Hopefully I can have it sent out to the printers by the end of the week.
Once it’s completed with the backing, I’ll show better pictures.
I have a penny rug in mind to make with a similar baby chick theme.
Go visit her site and buy something. She’s super wonderful!
Happy Day everyone!
