Huge piles of snow were at the start...and the finish. We also saw people and truckers pulling out their in-the-ditch vehicles here and there. (Yes, the storm was that bad in our neck of the woods -- nearly 2 feet of snow, though Denver only got about 3".) The roads were thankfully bone-dry throughout our trip.
The Brick and I got home just in time for a pile of work...and the next storm, which is supposed to roll in on Thanksgiving. I have barely had enough time to look sideways at the turkey, which is thawing in the sink, let along think about baking the usual pay-can pi-eee. Oh well, it will all get done somehow.

A simple -- and brilliant -- solution to a stained coffee table. (From The Boondocks Blog)
30 priceless one-liners. Including one from our buddy, Winston Churchill.
Stolen art -- including five cases where the art was recovered.
Another connected case -- hundreds of stolen art pieces found hidden in the apartment of the elderly son of an art dealer. (The authorities busted him while looking for money launderers, ironically.)
A beautiful wedding dress -- crocheted out of doilies!
Ten things under $10 to send your favorite missionary. Or out-of-town friend. Or family member.
Seven things learned during 7 years of blogging. (From Budgets Are Sexy) It's hard to believe, but next month will mark my 8 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of blogging!
Happy Thanksgiving to you, friends.
