Let it Snow - Let it Snow!!!
We live in western Washington state where it doesn't snow often, and we may get a few days every winter below freezing, but are we ever getting it now. For over a week we've been getting snow every day and the temperatures have not risen above freezing during the day. It's beautiful, but enough is enough!! We got down as low as 10 degrees one night, but today is sitting right at the freezing mark. It is predicted to get freezing rain later this evening, then snow flurries nearly every day this coming week. We have about 6 inches of snow on the ground right now and it's still coming down. Note the one picture of the house where my pansies are still blooming in the window box. These are called "winter pansies" and so far they are doing just fine.
Went to my knitting meet-up yesterday at the Austin-Chase Coffee house and had a great time. There were 6 of us there and I think everyone was just to glad to get out and about and talk about something besides the weather. Some of us cleaned out our stash and library shelves and brought items to "gift" to each other. Worked out real well, and we'll probably do that again.
Well, must get off the computer and get the rest of my Christmas cards addressed and sent out. Some of them are probably already too late to get to their proper home in time.
