Back From Gatlinburg!!!!!

It's Tues night and we got home this afternoon about five o'clock. I don't know if any of you saw the weather around Knoxville this morning, but there was a huge ice storm that hit there and the surrounding counties. Between 7:00 am and 1:00 pm there were 200 wrecks in Knox County alone. Even an ambulance with a patient overturned. It was awful. We were supposed to leave our Motel this morning, but there was no way I would get on the road in a storm like that. Bill kept wanting me to start home and I kept telling him NO. We had Ryan and Lucas with us, and it was necessary to go back toward Knoxville to their home. So, I waited until the temp got up to 35 and it started raining. It was around one o'clock when we left there. Things had gotten considerably better by then, and we made it home without an accident...PTL! I will post some pictures soon !
