Friday Contest

It has been a cold week here in the south, with ice and snow blanketing many areas. We were fortunate not to get any precipitation here, but my heart goes out to those affected by the ice storms. My son is an a/c and heating repairman in south Mississippi, and he said the road conditions were the worst he has ever seen (although growing up in East Texas, he didn't see a lot of  ice.) 

But, it is Friday, so how about a contest? I will give one person their choice of any PDF pattern on my site, bellacrochet.com. 

I will select the winner at random, and send out the patterns in the morning (Saturday.) I will post the name of the winner here, so be sure to check back in the morning to see if you won. 
Also, if you post anonymously, please be sure I have a way to identify you (at least give your first name or a nick name in your comment; I have no way of knowing who is posting.)

To enter, just leave a comment answering this question:
Do you drive in icy conditions, or do you prefer to just stay home until it thaws? 
This contest is now closed. 
Please check back soon for my next contest.

I don't drive in icy conditions unless necessary. My husband drives if it is icy.

I used to drive on anything when I was younger. Now, I'm staying home. There is nothing that important I have to do out there. :)

Besides, It's never boring at home if you have crochet!

Dars said...

Absolutely stay home! No one can drive on ice!

For me, it just depends on how icy the roads are. If it is a complete mess, then I will stay home. If there is probably ice in spots, then I will venture out if I absolutely have to. Usually though, I stay home since I work from home anyway.

Having been born and raised in Montana, I am not as intimidated by ice/snow as my Kansas neighbors. Having said that, I prefer not to drive on ice/snow here in Kansas, because Kansans are not as experienced on the road in these conditions and some do not drive safely.
Thank you for the contest. I love contests!!

I don't drive so that is easy but my husband does drive.

If we are going to have really bad weather we try to stock up ahead of time so we don't have to go out in it.

My husband doesn't have much a of choice, he is a Truck Driver and he has had to drive in horrible conditions, I've been with him on some of the trips and helped throw chains on not just the truck but the trailer. The only time the truck doesn't roll is when the roads are shut down.

I live in northwest Indiana (near Chicago) so I can drive in anything, but given the choice I'll stay in!

I WON'T drive in icy conditions. I have learned to drive in snowy conditions, but that's two totally different worlds. Here in the midlands of SC, we had snowy roads one day and icy the next... no fun.

I prefer to stay inside when it is icy, we don't have many icy days but if the schools don't close then I have to drive my grandchildren to school! Luckily it isn't far, just not close enough for them to ride the bus!

Vikki Hooks said...

If it is in the forecast I go out and get whatever I need to stay home and be comfortable and warm...who needs to go out when the hook and thread are screaming for attention?

Beva said...

I don't have a choice. I have to pick up my doughter from kindergarten.

New England born and raised, we got wicked ice storms on Cape Cod and a few Blizzards lol, tho I was a lead foot often in the snow I go s.l.o.w. lol, learned on a '69 with disk breaks. So yes I drive, well and slow.

Stitchy Mc Floss said...

We get a lot of ice here in KY and it is dangerous, I just stay home until it thaws.

Oh I love the doily on this post. You have such lovely designs. :)

Blessings always

Sherri said...

I live in Las Vegas Nevada it never gets icy here but I wouldn't go out I'd stay home and work up one of your patterns!

Sherry B said...

Diane Booth said...

I like to stay home but there are times I have to go out in that stuff.

I drive only when I have to, why take a change. Sometimes staying at home gives us a free day, and you know what a crocheter will do with free time.

I'm Wisconsin born & raised...I've even driven in a blizzard & an ice storm. Nothing much gets to me! Lol!!! ♥ ;-)

I don't have a choice, have to work, icy or not!
