Ian gamely posed with his indispensable snow shovel. You reach a point where there's no where else to put the snow. Yesterday was declared a Snow Emergency - schools were closed, the public was encouraged to stay off the roads, the mayor released all non-emergency personnel and set up an EOC to deal with the large number of traffic collisions. That is the 4th snow day this school year.
Our backyard isn't going to get shoveled and doesn't need to be.
However the night before last we were abruptly awakened about midnight by Maddie yowling like I've never heard before, arching her back and storming around our room. It was unearthly. I looked out our door and right in the left corner there was a crouched raccoon staring into the house. Ian was concerned that might have gotten trapped beneath the deck, and was struggling to get out at this end. Just to be safe the next day he dug out an area in the event other animals might be trapped under. We don't need to discover we have a ripening raccoon come spring.
As long as I can remember I've heard the expression that "it's too cold to snow," but I'm here to tell you that is not true.
I made the best of my Snow Day Challenge and finished off the towels using variegated yarn. I'll probably call them confetti for my record keeping.
With the extra 3" panel in the center, these towels are larger than I'm accustomed to. I think they might be better in a bathroom. I'm sure they're more absorbent than terrycloth towels.
I've pulled these together so make another Four Towels from Four Cones challenge with the last cone of variegated. After five days we are going to be able to get out tomorrow and run our errands so weaving will wait. Our weather is predicted to warm up on Sunday with several days of rain in the forecast. That should keep things interesting.
