Such Heartbreaking News…

Last night, I took the kids to their Bible study in Canandaigua.  I got a bit nervous when they didn’t come out until nearly 20 minutes later than usual, but Michelle had decided to play a game of Foosball, as the winner would receive a rose!

While the kids were at their study, I went shopping at TJ Maxx.  They have so many cute things for Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day.  One of the items that really caught my eye was this cute little bone china mug….

The stamp on the botom says Crown Trent UK , but there was a sticker over it stating that the mug was made in China, and decorated in England.  Ugh! Since when is nice bone china made in China? 

Perhaps it is the Ukrainian in me that loves the colorful decorations on the mug, but I thought it was so cute! (or, it could be the wee bit o’ Irish that was attracted to the green!)

After picking the kids up, we left Canandaigua, where it was lightly snowing, but not sticking to the ground. As I drove, the weather began to degrade rapidly.  The roads were snow covered and glistening. The amount of snow on the ground was in direct correlation to elevation, so as we neared home, the snow was deeper. I took it easy and we made it safely home.

I went upstairs later and as I listened to the radio, the anouncer said a plane crashed in Buffalo in a residential neighborhood.  As I listened, he said details were sketchy….

This morning, information is being given regarding the accident and the people who were on board.  There were 44 passengers, 4 crew members, and one person on the ground died.  The plane crashed into a house, and two people in the house escaped, but another was killed.  Everyone aboard the plane died in the crash. This is just so heart-wrenching…
