Take care, my friends and readers and have a wonderful day. It's -11 Celsius here and feels like -24 C with the windchill. A bitter cold day and that winds seems to push the cold right into your bones. If you live in an area where it is cold and weather conditions are adverse, take care when driving and stay warm and cozy.
Anni at Hootin' Anni's has challenged anyone who would like to take part to a 175 Word Challenge. Anni has a very cool word counter that you can use to write an event about your life. The word counter counts the words as you type them and then you can edit the words to fit the word count. There is a bit of a descrepency with mine. Anni's word counter counts the words in my essay at 175. Micr*soft Word counts it as 178 words. So Anni, you be the judge. Here it is:
In 1974, my daughter and I left Toronto airport for Calgary and then on to Cranbrook, B.C. Over Winnipeg, the pilot informed us that there was a blizzard raging and we would be laying over until the storm let up and it was safe to go on.
We were stuck in Calgary airport for 24 hours. This was only my second time flying and I was not impresed. People were sleeping on the floor and on their luggage. An elderly woman from Reno commandeered a lounge seat in the lady's lounge so Michelle would have a place to sleep. Finally, the next day the airline put us all up at the Four Seasons. It was wonderful to be away from the crowds, have a place to shower and a bed to sleep in.
The next morning was sunny, bright day. We saw breathtaking views of the Rockies and landed safe and sound in Cranbrook a half hour after leaving Calgary.
Never in my life do I want to experience this again. It was a horrible nightmare.
Be sure to drop over to Hootin' Anni's and take part in this challenge. Can you write exactly 175 words about an event in your life? Sure you can and it's fun. Have a wonderful day. ~Blessings, Mary~
