A storm

Cancelled flights

Couch learning!

Inspiration:  Kevin’s 6 Word Slices Here

Two required because the first was written in anticipation of the day’s learning on site in person, and the second was written after searching tickets, flights, and airports for HOURS!

Six Word Stories Here

Six Word Memoirs Here

    So sorry!! It was really bad in Boston too. Love six-word memoirs — I might have to give that a go one day this month! At least stay in your PJs!!

    1. Clare,
      I couldn’t believe some of the “rescues” I saw on TV in Boston. Yes, PJs today; but so hate to miss out on the learning.

      Do try the six-words. I approached it kind of like black out poetry. Wrote a lot, picked out words I liked, and then re-assembeled!

  2. I now have a photo to add to my slice for tomorrow showing trains North canceled. So bummed that I am NOT in NYC right now. But I am safe. And will just read tweets from my couch. I love the 6 words with image. So much revealed in so few words!

    1. Oh, NO! More storm fall out!
      So glad that you are safe, but also know that you are missing the learning and the people!

  3. So sorry your plans were averted, but your slice captured the high and low well.

    1. Erika,
      Total opposites! 🙂 The six words was fun. I will be using it again!

  4. I really thought about doing this. But the reality was not to be. So glad you are there. Love to you.

  5. Correction. Glad you are learning locally and safely. ME too.

    1. Julieanne,
      It was so hard to check so many places and to even find out that a train was not possible. So needed that midwinter learning! So blessed to have twitter but not the same as being there! ❤

  6. It was wicked here in the East. So many flights cancelled. We didn’t leave the house yesterday. Sorry you missed getting together but glad you remained safe. Saw pictures of a plane landing and the wind was really buffeting it. Oh my.

    1. So many “what ifs” to try to come up with a different outcome. . . glad to be safe but so missed the connections. Maybe we should gather on skype. It was so nice and sunny here today . . . except for me! Not sunny! LOL

  7. So sorry, Fran! We lost power yesterday at 3 p.m. and probably will not have power until Sunday evening or even Monday. Love the six word stories and memoirs. Thanks!

    1. Lynne,
      I saw at least two busloads of #TCRWP travelers had to return home because of the weather. There’s nothing worse than being stranded; that’s for sure!

      The six words work has been fun and surprising. I will circle back to it at some point! You are so welcome!

  8. What a bummer! But better to be safe.

    1. I know, Rose, but I just needed the mental and heart boost that always comes from #TCRWP! Such strange weather = that’s for sure!

  9. I’m only two hours away and I didn’t make it in, either, Fran. And my internet was out, so I couldn’t read the tweets. At least I can go back and read them now. Hope the weather in Iowa is better than it was here!

    1. Catherine,
      50 + and sunny today. So very nice. That made it harder. It sure seemed nice here! And yet, I’m not quite sure where the day went to – not much to show for my day of leisure YET!

  10. […] was inspired by Fran, who was inspired by Kevin and, I added some photo inspiration […]

  11. […] to Fran for reminding me of Six-Word […]
