Okay, cheesy. I know. It's late, so lay off. But when I got home from work this morning and went to bed, the ground was bare and brown. When I woke up this evening, it looked like this:
According to the National Weather Service, we were supposed to get 3-7 inches. When I snapped this pic, we had about 9 or 10 inches with the snow still coming down lightly. It was almost to the top of my 12" high boots. It's beautiful, light, fluffy stuff, which will hopefully make it easy to clear the drive tomorrow (Okay, technically today. Like I said, it's late.), when we're expecting my father to deliver a bookcase that was promised as a Christmas present. Of course, he hadn't started when I spoke to him Friday evening, so we'll see what happens. :-)
Another pic that will be coming soon is of my Knitting Unlympics project. I decided not to sign up for the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics because I wasn't sure my wrists would hold up (I made a preemptive Michelle Kwan decision). Still, I love a challenge, so I decided to pick up a UFO I'd set aside to finish holiday knitting - a pair of double layer mittens with baby alpaca on the inside and a lovely yarn I bought at Rhinebeck on the outside.
Right now, it's bedtime, and I still have half of the last thumb to finish, but it shall be done, and I shall post photos. I promise.
