I had grand plans of posting new knits and news about yarn, but all of that must be set aside for just a moment because of all this SNOW! It started out as a picturesque powdery snowfall on Friday with kids home from school and everyone expecting a pretty good amount of snow.
Hey, we’re from New England, nothing to get crazy about. Those newscasters always try to drum up the drama and scare everyone, right? Well, not this time. We had a true blizzard here, and by the next morning this was the view out my kitchen window.
We had 40 inches to be exact. I know I haven’t seen that much since ’78. You could stack my three dachsies up and they still couldn’t see over the top of it! So, Saturday morning, a 3′ x 5′ slot was carved out for the little weenie dogs to do their thing, and the rest of us just accepted that staying inside was the best idea. This was the state of my car as of Saturday Evening (and that post sticking out just above the snow is my four foot fence).
I’ve been knitting and writing like crazy, of course. Yesterday, I did finally venture outside and Lil One had ample snowball material to play with… and jump on !
Today, day 4 of this snowbound situation, it rained most of the day. Needless to say it was so disgusting I couldn’t even bring myself to take a picture. No school again tomorrow, and we still haven’t uncovered the car. Oh well! Back to the spring knitting (the bright spot), and maybe another round of cooking, cleaning and sacking out to watch a movie with the family. I’m just going to focus on the cute, happy moments and try to ignore the rest!
