Time to see Dad. Assuming the TSA sorta did their job back on Saturday 1/19 (don't get me started on this shutdown crap-a-roni) - I should have boarded a plane and flown to Philly. My sister would have picked me up at the airport and then driven to Dad's in the suburbs. Fingers crossed that the weather cooperated. Even more, I hope we get to Pudgies for a Philly cheesesteak sandwich - the best around.
By Sunday 1/20 - snow-maggedon might have occurred. This picture is from several years ago - my sister took it on her balcony. Fear not folks. I shall be indoors at my dad's and toasty warm. He's a little hot house flower these days and keeps his heat cranked. And supposedly my brother hired a guy for the season to plow my dad's driveway.
Traveling in January is a serious crap shoot, but I didn't get back east at end of last year, so it was time. Time for some laughs with dad. Time to just sit at the old kitchen table and watch dad shuffle papers. Time to watch dad snooze in his recliner (hint - always make sure you have control of the remote)
Hope you are having a good Wednesday. I am. I'm not working!!!
Have a safe trip! I'd thought about visiting the kids in OH but like you said the weather is such a crapshoot this time of year. I didn't want to be crossing the mountains in PA if there was going to be snow.ReplyDelete
I lucked out. Rainy and cold, but no snow. Some bright sunny days too.Delete
Just enjoy and stay inside. Unless you venture out to get some snow pictures.ReplyDelete
pretty much sat at the kitchen table to the whole time. That's where we chat and move from meal to mealDelete
Enjoy and avoid the snow and snatch the remote.ReplyDelete
no snow and yes, I snatched the remote from Dad who snoozes a lotDelete
Have a safe journey Joanne, not much fun travelleing in bad weather, Hope dad is ok.ReplyDelete

That's a lot of snow! Safe travels! (Glad you don't have to work.)ReplyDelete

Safe trip, stay warm and enjoy your time with Dad. Hope all is well with you and family.ReplyDelete
thanks. All went well and my dad is hobbling along okay.Delete
Sounds like you had a nice visit with your Dad. Our weather has been all over the place the last week or so. We are bracing for bitter cold midweek coming up.ReplyDelete
Hi Joanne - lovely photo of your Dad. So glad you got up to visit him ... it'll cheer you both up - we might even get some of that white stuff in the next 24 hours - who knows down here ... cheers HilaryReplyDelete
