white out

IMG_9114

This is what 15 inches of snow looks like. Our first real storm this winter, and all within a 24 hour period! I had the snowblower out twice yesterday because I figured I'd have more trouble the deeper the snow got. To the right in the picture is the corner of the screened porch and the snow is almost up to the part where the screen starts. Yikes! The pictures are from this morning and you can see more of them on my Flickr page.

By last night I was exhausted and freezing cold—you know that feeling that you just can't get warm. I curled up on the couch near the woodstove, with a blanket and my two cats curled up near my feet. Very cozy. And I finished one book—Skylight Confessions by Alice Hoffman (love her stuff) and started another—The Saffron Kitchen by Yasmin Crowther (a first novel for her). Good thing I got to the library this week!

Ooohh that is dreamy!
Really I dream about snow. And here I am sewing bathing suits...in Florida...

I have not seen winter in 3 years and miss it terribly.

Enjoy the white out!

You know over here the entire country ground to a halt over 1" of snow don't you? Stay warm!

As a Western Pennsylvania, I know where you've coming from! My husband and I shoveled the driveway just about every hour!
Stay Warm!

In Cincinnati, we're weather weanies but the icy storm this past week made me rethink winter weather. It is amazing to see 1/2" - 1" thick tree branches of icy reflecting intense sunlight the last couple of days! Talk about a winter wonderland. I've been digging out knitting books because of all the outside inspiration. What was that groundhog talking?! : )

That does look cozy! Perfect for indoor projects- more stitching? Enjoy!
