Weekend out of town

Like most everyone in the country we have had lots of snow and a week out of school. I love the snow but I have had my share and I am ready for some sunshine, and to see my students. I hope they haven't forgot everything.
Here is what my road looked like and yes I am on a tractor with my husband as he clears the road. We are the only people who live on top of this mountain so it's up to my husband if the roads get cleared. It's beautiful until you are running out of food and milk! and you haven't been able to get off the mountain for a week. We were actually going to get our 4WD that got stuck earlier in the week.
We were supposed to go on a youth retreat with some friends, but after my husband got the roads cleared and went down the mountain to check out how everything looked he decided it was still to dangerous. So Saturday we tried again and we made!!!! We were on our way to Pigeon Forge!

This is where we got to stay!!! Beautiful isn't it and we are close to town. It was a great couple of days the only thing missing was the internet. I am so behind on reading what everyone is doing.
So far so good on getting to go to school tomorrow. I hope everyone has a great week and maybe I will get to take some pics of what I am doing.


  1. I bet it is kind of fun to be snowed in for a while, but I can imagine cabin fever sets in after a while!

  2. Hi, Penny! Hope you had a great time in Pigeon Forge. Since we are in Knoxville, we go often! I was coming over to answer your question about paint: I used satin throughout my house this time. I do like semi-gloss for the washability factor, but we used Sherwin Williams' Duration & they convinced me it was very washable. And so far, so good! Hope that helps you. So glad it helped you decide on your color. Stop back by anytime!
