Little House Meets Little Rock




Hey loves,

The universe felt that on this past Christmas evening, I should play the part of Laura Ingalls. That's right, the universe turned Little Rock, AR into Little Houses on the Prairies. My goodness, someone wished for a white Christmas and that's exactly what they received.



It was shortly after 5:30 PM and the sun began to fall and the temperatures fell as well. Because my mother had to endure the torture of her job, we didn't have dinner until 6. The darker it became, the colder it got, then the lights begin to flicker. BOOOOOOO

The storm had arrived.



The snow fell faster than we expected but there weren't any worries because typically snow doesn't last long in LR.

Boy, we were wrong.







The storm caused trees to fall, major power outages (including us), stores were closed, gas tanks were empty, and all the hotels were filled to capacity.



It was miserable.

We have power now and all is well. Now onward to Paris in two days.
