Northern Virginia definitely had the snowfall that had been predicted for the past few days. And it was really something else. The snow was falling so hard and so fast last night that people were abandoning their cars. This was a very heavy snow that you just could not drive in. A normal hour ride home took quite a few people 7 to 9 hours. My husband didn't even come home. He just stood at a hotel for the night. Did you know that I absolutely cannot stand winter or snow? I've had enough. I want spring and I want warm weather. Of course my son is thrilled. He's been home for 2 days now and is wondering if they will even have school tomorrow. Luckily the temps have warmed up today and the sun is shining so the roads are so much better. They've been plowed and salted and plowed and sanded so they are looking pretty good. Maybe a two hour delay....but I think (and hope) that's all there will be.
I found this recipe on Ingrid's blog. She has so many good recipes and I just had to make this once I saw it. This is absolutely delicious while it's still somewhat warm. Needless to say, I just kept going back for more of this. One of these days I plan on making cinnamon rolls using yeast. (Yes, yeast....something I rarely use but need to work with more). I highly recommend making this cake. It's great for breakfast, to have with coffee or for a pot luck. Easy too!
