It seems that the snowy, freezing cold weather may be letting up, at least temporarily. We’ve had five 2 hour delays (so far) since Christmas, and two snow days this month, and I’ve enjoyed all of them! I usually keep pretty close tabs on the weather during the winter, but I missed hearing about Sunday’s storm until we were in the midst of it.
This picture was taken on route 36 – the main road! We had a beautiful drive to church, but it was really slippery – when John uses 4-wheel drive, you know it’s bad. There was a small turnout at church and evening services were canceled because of the expected 6 – 12 inches of snow. We had a nice, relaxing evening at home.
We ended up getting 6-8 inches of new snow, but it drifts so much around here, it’s hard to gauge exactly how much we have.
Monday morning, John got the driveway cleared out again. It’s so nice to have the cub cadet fixed so he doesn’t have to shovel by hand!
I’ve been spending a lot of my extra time at home knitting. It’s such a relaxing hobby! This is my current project,
a scarf using lace-weight yarn, the thinnest yarn I’ve ever knit with.
