I did NOT pack for this!

I have been in Columbus, Ga., since Wednesday. We had a beautiful day in the high 60s on Thursday, a good morning of weather on Friday, then Noah started to figure out where he had stored his Ark.

We got in 15 of an originally planned 50+ games. And woke up this morning to this:


Roaming Tigger got into the act too

Brrr!!! We're in Georgia, right???

I thought we left this weather at home!

We were supposed to drive back to Starkville, Miss., today. But someone in our travel party (Those who know me off the blog can guess and probably get it right. ::sigh::) got the Yukon stuck up to its axels in the mud at the field. So three of us stayed here in Columbus until we can (hopefully) get the truck un-stuck in the morning. At that point, we'll head to Panama City Beach, Fla., for the second tournament.

We had to change hotels from the Columbus Marriott to the Phenix City, Ala., Quality Inn for the evening. Please send happy thoughts for un-sticking the truck tomorrow!

Meanwhile, we're warming up by the fire in the Quality Inn lobby. Comfy couches and basketball on the TV to go along with the fire!

That makes me appreciate our bare ground even more!

I think Roaming Tigger is the best thing in the world! Sorry about your travel woes. Getting stuck in the snow is never a joy.

Holy crap, that's a lot of snow for Georgia! And we had nothing but sunny skies here today.

I hope the truck gets out okay and you have warm weather waiting for you in Florida!

Oy! And I've been being smug about the warmth I'll be enjoying in Florida when I go later this week. Guess I hadn't better count my snow geese before they're hatched!
