You know how sometimes you wait and wait and wait for something, and then you finally give up on it or forget about it and then, all of a sudden it happens? That happened yesterday. The "end of the world ice-storm" never appeared. We all went to school and/or work on Tuesday. Wednesday morning we're getting ready to go when Todd hears on the radio a list of school closings. What? I look out the window and everything is white. Amazing! It was 6:30 and, dang it, I was too excited to go back to sleep. Hunter was the only kid up so we let the other 2 sleep in before sharing the exciting news. It actually snowed for hours and hours....and stayed on the ground most of the day. I took loads of pictures but put my camera down somewhere in all the excitement and now I can't find it. Of course.

Today was just like Tuesday. We got up and all went to school or work. Who knows what tomorrow holds?

Meanwhile, I've been "franken-knitting" and turned a couple of wool sweaters into some felt-fodder. The orange one has so far donated it's arms to a pair of fingerless gloves (I call them glove-lings) for me to knit in. Them thar aluminium needles get cold, I tell ya'! So far they still have safety pins separating the fingers, but I'm not sure I won't leave them that way. The pins give more space between the fingers than a seam would.

Since I can't show you snow photos, here's a pic':

I like 'em! They're nice and warm, yet not constricting. Good for knitting, changing TV stations, dialing phones, typing. Not good for washing dishes, petting cats or going to the bathroom. Just so you know.

I'm also working on another wire/bead/glass colander/decoration/thingy so I can take some photos and show you what I mean. Maybe you can help name them.

Try and keep warm.....except Bob and Geraldine...and the Emersons....and anyone else living in warm climes.....ya' hosers! Love ya' anyway.

Just so you has gotten a little cooler at night here now...maybe even in the high 60s, low 70s!

I'm praying for clear skies in TX on Thurs/Fri. Otherwise I'm stuck with relatives even longer...
