Back in the Great Northwest

Glad to be back in the Great Northwest after spending 17 days in Southern CA assisting my father-in-law–getting him into a nursing home, selling his mobile home, and settling his personal affairs.  Two 12-hour driving days in each direction.  Thank God for keeping me safe.  Had some bad weather on the return trip.  Returned to some abnormal weather at home.  Approximately a foot of snow last week followed by freezing rain and widespread power outages.  Power restored a my house about two hours before getting home.
