More SNOW! and a Finish

For those who have never been to our area and are wondering how so little snow can make so much craziness, you need to see our hills and then know that because snow happens so infrequently in this part of the state there are very few snowplows. That being said, it is pretty!

And we've had more snow since this picture, and more to come.  All schools in the area are closed again, too, along with lots of businesses.

Our hilly street finally was plowed late yesterday but is now snow-covered once again.

It was clear and cold on Saturday night.

Our neighbor created this after they'd shoveled their driveway which slopes downward into their garage.  Isn't she clever?  Although no one has been seen lounging in that chair.

Meanwhile, lots of knitting has been happening here.  This hat made of Berroco's North Star was mailed off to a friend who's having another round of chemo. More snow is predicted and then RAIN which is predicted to cause major flooding.  Stay tuned....I may have more finishes soon.  And here we thought the groundhog said spring would happen soon. I wonder if he's laughing now?  And then there's the truck that crashed on the freeway freeing lots of chickens.....don't you wish you were here?

It looks like our house. And we’re in another winter storm warning tonight and tomorrow too, with another 15 to 18 inches predicted! I’m so done. And to think last week I was talking about our mild winter. The joke is on me. I’m getting a lot of crocheting/knitting done too, so I guess that’s good. I looked for the pattern for Piper’s sweater that you asked about, and I think it is the “girls all in one sleeveless top” by Marianne Mel on (Ravelry). I’m not positive, but I’m pretty sure that’s the right pattern.
Stay safe my friend. Blessings, Betsy

We woke up to snow (though not that much) and they are calling for freezing rain tonight and tomorrow.
It's definitely worse when you're not prepared for it (or used to it!)
Stay warm and have fun knitting!

I understand the difficulties snow can cause in your area. We are going to get 6-10 inches more by Wednesday. But we are better able to handle that much snow than you. I love love love that picture of the moonlit snow scene!! It looks like a painting.

I hadn't heard about the chicken truck! Oh what a mess THAT must have been.

We only got a dusting of snow so far and the roads have been clear. We are supposed to get more tonight and early tomorrow and don't you know, Steve has an appointment he cannot rebook.

Hope you and Dick stay warm, dry and safe at home for awhile.

Love your neighbor's snow chair! A sense of humor certainly helps cope with the unexpected.

Oh, pretty. I could use another snow before spring but I don't think that's going to happen. It's all rain, rain, rain. Ugh.

That chair is amazing. Hope you are able to get out and about now.

Welcome to my world! I love snow and snowy days. I don't love making up the time at school that we missed.
We have tons of plows here, yet the city has been unable to keep up with all the snow.
Our biggest problem is that the snow melts in the sun and that refreezes at night, making for slippery sidewalks.
