Going into hibernation!!!

Well, Mr. U, Sugarbaby, and I were up before the sun and on the road to Lake Placid for a figure skating competition and boy, was it cold out there in the Adirondack Mountains!!!!!

and it got colder!!!!It actually dipped to -26 degrees before rising again. It is probably the coldest weekend of the season!

Reason enough to hibernate!

But here we were on the highway early this morning watching the steam coming off the trucks..

peering through the iced up windows.....
and watching the sunrise over the mountains...
Just spectacular!!!!
We arrived in town at around 7:30 or so....
with the mountains aglow....
Inside the Olympic Ice Center, Sugarbaby was all aglow too!!!

She competed against 5 other skaters (this photo is a shot from warm up before she took off her jacket!) in her age group and level...
and took first place!!!! Yeah!

Still cold outside the rink on the way home...
and icy!
Reason enough to hibernate!

So I am gathering up my supplies (food and fabric!) for the weekend and hiding in my sewing room, hoping to finish up this baby and soon!

Stay warm!!!
