A small visit to the USA

We had a great time yesterday...but what a drive. We hit a big blizzard going and coming back from Syracuse NY. Have you ever seen lightning in a snow storm????????? We were thinking of heading back but the next exit was 4 miles a head, so no way of turning back. It's was just crazy!

We finally came home with more than 1hour and half of delays because of the road conditions. Near Brockville 11 accidents in a 12 KM distance! People are just stupid... When you see a car in the ditch... what do you think first.... I hope they are OK.... then you see then trying to push the car, so that tell you that they are fine! Then a few minutes later dead stop on the 401... and you see cop cars trying to pass on the side of the road... again another accident. Then a Truck in the jackknife position(hihihi that's Stephane description for it) basically they can't move anymore. So what goes threw our mind... now.... SLOW DOWN, please! What's the point to going fast if you are end up in a ditch! So 11 accidents later we were safely back home.

We went to AC Moore, Jo-Ann's, Target, K-Mart, Walmart, Dick's and Foot Locker for St├ęphane! Ac and Jo-Ann's had great sales!

PS... At the Us customs the officer was really funny, he was asking us were we were going, what we were going to do... Stephane response was Site seeing... So the officers response was a big question mark on is face... so I replied and probably some shopping... So he looks at Stephane and he said: "Was that her idea or yours?" I didn't leave time for Stephane to answer, I said mine. So the officer looked to Stephane and said" for $20 I could refuse your entry to the States if you would like..." Really the first officer that was funny in all our trip down there... I'm really going to do a Scrapbooking pages on the top 20 things that you can say and hear at the Customs... This is really on my to do list of LO !

That is funny! A customs officer with a sense of humour!
How was AC Moore? I've heard so many wonderful things about that store.
