It's Thankful Thursday and I am so thankful that all of the family that was out and about driving yesterday made it home safely. In the 9 years we've lived here, we've never had weather like we had yesterday afternoon and evening. A Ice-Rain storm arrived mid afternoon and boy was it awful to be out in. I was at a friends house and her hubby told me to be really careful driving home, because it was so slick out. It wasn't snowing, but the rain was freezing as soon as it hit the windshield. I drove past one accident where a young gal had lost control, drove off the road and rolled her car. Thankfully many good Samaritans were helping her; in fact, a lady was walking her to the road and the gal was sobbing and collapsed onto the field. I kept waiting for EMT's to arrive and none showed up by the time traffic cleared. I later found out why-there was an alert sent out not to call 911 unless there was an injury involved. When our SIL was driving home from work-a normal 30 minute commute that took an hour, he saw 4 cars rolled over and he stopped to help one man get out of his car. Some folks might call what we had Black Ice-I don't know, but it was treacherous. From what the news said this morning there were four fatalities due to weather.
On Sunday, hubby and I cooked a turkey and had three wonderful meals from it, besides freezing the majority of meat. Last night we had a little left so made our traditional Fried Rice, pictured below. This is a standard that we use with left overs such as chicken, steak, turkey, pork/ham. WE add in fresh vegetable like carrots, onion, mushrooms, broccoli etc. We also add in cooked white or brown rice and scrambled egg. I knew I'd have a hard time deciding what to post today so quickly took a photo; actually I took the picture to text my friend I saw yesterday who said they always have a hard time figuring out what's for dinner.
Today will be an inside day; this afternoon the grands come over and tonight we are going to a dinner theater with our neighbors. I'd rather just hunker down inside, but it should be fun.
I hope you are having a good week and that your weather isn't as weird as ours was yesterday. It's been snowing since last evening-which may mean that it could be even slicker on the roads today.
