We had a 'real' snowstorm here yesterday...we had probably 5-6" of snow over about a 6-7 hour period. We don't do snow here in the Pac Northwest, and much of life ground to a halt today (no schools, no busses, etc). I had a guest in town so Tim drove me in through the icy streets (we only live about 2 miles from school) and had a nice day. There was sort of a pioneer spirit among the hearty souls who traveled into work given the 'harsh' conditions.
Yesterday we took the dogs out during the height of the storm and let them play in the park next to our house. Cody was a happy happy guy.
And Miss Juneau showed us that she is indeed part Northern dog....she is always a bit on the exuberant side but she was positively joyful running around in the snow yesterday. Note on this picture that both of her back legs are up in the air as she cavorted in the snow.
We did have to venture out last night in the slippery slideyness, and it was beautifully eerie to be the only car on I-5. The snow dusted the trees on the hills surrounding our little valley, and there was lots of reflected light from the snow.
I finished the gloves, but couldn't bring myself to wear them in the snow. I know, I know, that's just SILLY, but oh well. The gloves are beautiful (the yarn is STR mediumweight in the Haida colorway, part of the Raven collection).
And I have more to show you. Here is a sneak peak: some finished socks, some new socks, and a new sweater (think Snow White).
