So Happy Autumn Is Back! ~ Pink Saturday November 5, 2011

My Pink Saturday fun ended at 11:00 am last Saturday morning when Mother Nature decided to participate in Halloween. She gave us an October snowstorm, a definite trick and not at all a treat! The heavy wet snow brought down a lot of trees and electric lines. By Sunday afternoon we decided it was too cold and we wanted a warm cup of tea or hot chocolate and needed to leave. But before we could do that we had to shovel a pathway to the cars and remove the snow from the cars. Then we needed someone to cut up and move the trees that had fallen in our driveway and we needed someone to remove the snow as well. (We live on a wooded lot with a 100 ft. long stone/gravel driveway.) Luckily by the time our driveway was clear enough to get the car down the roads had been plowed and the tree debris was pushed to the sides of the roads. We stayed in a hotel for a few nights then we stayed with friends.

Wednesday afternoon the electric was restored to our home and we were so glad to come home. There is much to catch up on and there is a lot of cleaning up to do outside. I am so grateful we were safe and that the trees did not fall on our cars or our house. I am also so grateful and thankful for wonderful friends.

Thanks to all who visited me last week and left comments. I did try to get back to everyone but if I missed you please forgive me.

Stop by How Sweet The Sound to say hello to Beverly and visit some of the other P.S. participants.

One good thing about last weekend was this lovely birthday collage my friend Cindy made for me. Click here to visit Cindy at the Shabby Chic Gilrs Club. Thank you again sweet Cindy Lou!

Enjoy Autumn!


  1. I can really relate to your story! We had the same problem here in PA!!!! Our electric was turned back on Tuesday night.

  2. Hi Linda,
    Oh gosh, I am SO happy that you have your electric back--this is GREAT news!!! And Happy Pink Saturday!! That was so sweet of you to post the card and just know it was made with wishes for a very happy birthday!!!

  3. Happy Pink Saturday Linda Sweetie...
    What a blessing to have your electricity back on, the tree cut up and your lifes almost back to normal.

    CIndy is definitely a jewel, and it is just like her to share and give of herself to her friends. Smoothe sailing is definitely in the cards for you dear friend. We are all praying for that.

    Have a glorious weekend. Many country hugs, Sherry

  4. I'm glad you're restored back home, Linda. My sister and brother were in that storm, too. They're respective homes made out okay, but sister's mother-in-law was without electricity, and I hear some communitites are still without water.

    Enjoy a very pink Saturday, and Oh, Happy Birthday.

  7. Mother nature can be very cruel sometimes. I'm very glad you have your electric back on and wish you well in the clean up, etc. We have been having very mild weather for Indiana and I'm very thankful for it. Hope you have a good week.
