The Friday before Christmas, before the BIG storms, I saw a 4-car accident in this same place due to drifting, blowing snow causing white-out, icy conditions.
Here are a few contacts if you'd like to request a change here:
Rep Eric Hutchings firstname.lastname@example.org
Salt Lake County council members
There's a start. I have a few other contacts to try. I'll let you know what I find out.

Ok, side note- Tim went to check and apparently Jenna is up. I have no idea how long she's been up. We told her she couldn't get up until 7:00, but the power went out around 3:00 so her clock is 3 1/2 hours slow. She asked Tim if it was ok to get up and go potty. Oops! Sorry Dolly!

And finally, here are the pilgrim hat treats I made for Jenna's class party. They are Keebler Fudge Stripe cookies, mini peanut butter cups, a little frosting and a passion fruit Tic Tac. They were a big hit!
By the way, if anyone has thought about joining me, WW just launched a new program- it is a great combination of some of the older plans. The best of everything! Just do it!!

They turn out so great! It would be an easy way to personalize a Christmas or wedding gift- practical, yet person- my favorite combination!

I am doing a show tomorrow (Saturday, December 6th) with my MIL & SIL at the U of U married student housing. It is at the East Village in apt 1194. Enter Arapeen drive from Sunnyside Ave and follow the signs. It goes from 10 am - 4 pm. Let me know if you need more info.
Hope to see you there!

I was sewing along and noticing my machine was loud and a bit choppy. "Oil it," I thought but I kept going. A bit later I thought again "oil it." I told myself I had so much to do so I would oil it later. No, now. It may sound silly but I think I was being prompted to do this before I destroyed my machine.
Having never done this before I got out my manual to see what to do. It recommend oiling your machine weekly if you sew for less than an hour a day or daily if you sew more than that. OOPS!
Now it is running like a champ and MUCH quieter. It goes through nine layers of fabric with ease now!
Three cheers for reading directions!!!

Please know that I realize the blue doesn't match. I just don't know how to get rid of it!
