How are you? How's your weather? We are having a snow event! Word on the street is that this storm will bring us more snow than we have seen in 5 years or so. Forecast for us is up to 14" possible! Here's what it looked like at 6 a.m. (still dark thirty):
When I stepped onto our patio to take this shot, I could hear the sleet hitting surfaces, so the awful "wintry mix" is happening. The snow started yesterday right around 12:30 p.m. or so, and it is supposed to continue snowing through tomorrow! And tomorrow, of course, is Ground Hogs Day. If this weather keeps up, Phil will not see his shadow. The wind seems to be back again too, which is not fun.
We were supposed to head over to Colin & Mailing's for dinner yesterday, but with the snow coming down we all decided it made more sense for us to stay home. Boo-Hoo. Hopefully all this will be cleared up by next Saturday when C&M are supposed to come to our house for dinner.
Fletch and I are both now registered with the County for THE VACCINE. No word on when we will get it, but at least we are registered. My brother in DE received his first dose last week (his wife still has not, but my brother has major health issues).
A little knitting was accomplished over the weekend. Not as much as I anticipated, of course. But here is where things are with the sock and the cowl:
I'm on the heel flap (Eye of the Partridge version) on the sock and am more than mid-way through the Interrupted Rib section on Heart Warmer. In the mail I received my Darning Kit from Katrinkles so I set to work repairing a pair of Colin's socks. All I can say is that I need practice! My patches are quite uneven.
On the cooking side of things, I made Morning Glory Muffins for breakfast yesterday. Oh boy! It was like having carrot cake for breakfast. Yum. They have grated carrots and apple as well as crushed pineapple, coconut and walnuts. I planned to take half over to Colin & Mailing, but now we are stuck with all of them! I wanted something warm and cozy for dinner tonight with all the snow, so I took leftover Thanksgiving turkey out of the freezer and will be making a turkey pot pie. Comfort Food FTW!
If this were PPD (Pre Pandemic Days), I would be having a snow day, but since I typically work from home these days, even though we are having a major storm, I will have to work. Boo-Hoo. Hopefully I can squeeze in some knitting and reading time. I hope everyone had a great weekend and if you are in the storm's path, be safe and warm.
