You know how we always joke about - Be careful what you pray for - you might just get it? We've been in a long drought in the West and "pray for snow" has become a standard byline for skiers, and everyone else for anyone for that matter. We got it in spades, but we didn't pray to get it all in one day! It started falling last night and this morning, the schools and all government offices were announced closed. The University was the last to determine closure, a huge relief to me since my daughter works there and was trying to get cables on her car. A foot of snow is a fourth of her car's total height! Our neighbor Tom called this morning to say that he'd be making the old fogies run for all us senior citizens, clearing driveways so we could get our cars out. He loves to play with his tractor and we appreciated the offer. Snow is forecast for all week.
He did in a short time what would have taken us a very long time. He's an awesome neighbor. DD Chris says he is the best. Ever. I had to move to the hinderlands to realize genuine neighbors - the kind where you go inside each others home and talk on the phone. Ever.
I started winding a warp this morning, but decided instead to work on my practice sewing. It seemed likely the power would go out, so I decided to sew until it did. It didn't. It's dinnertime now and 14 degrees outside. More sewing tomorrow~
