Seriously, this is getting just a bit old. First Sandy came through, then Athena - the first named winter storm - came at us with an unexpected vengeance dumping more snow than rain. It's ironic and oddly amusing. It's like someone's playing a big joke on us.
Oddly enough, I think the snow versus rain saved us from having many more trees down. In Connecticut when it rains and then gets windy - - like it was supposed to last night - - it usually creates the perfect recipe for disaster. The 70-foot trees only have 3 foot root balls and they literally topply over like dominoes. I think that having snow instead of rain changed the recipe for us and spared us any additional unecessary damage. And, there was a two-hour school delay because of the snow. Not bad!
In knitting news, during all this bad weather, I knit a lot of hats. My friend donated some yarn for a charity but the need sort of dried up. I thought I should put that yarn to a good charitable cause and started picking out the soft DK weight yarn to make some baby hats for charity.
There. That is definitely something more positive and cheery to think about than the crazy weather we've been having. Don't you agree?
If you're in the northeast - stay safe! Drive carefully. And I honestly hope you have power back by now.
