Oh, The Weather Outside is Frightful...


It truly, truly is. Here in Iowa, we are under a blizzard advisory for the whole state. Wind gusts are picking up entire drifts of snow and scattering them to the air, likely to re-land on my dad's freshly shoveled driveway. The man across the street has been snow-blowing his own driveway for three hours, probably to escape his crazy, screaming wife.

I got trapped in Marshalltown for the week (or, at least until the snow clears up) because of the blizzard - they have literally shut down all the highways. I-35 had the National Guard on call yesterday. Thank goodness they got to go home today - I worry about them just as much as any of the yahoos who felt the need to be on the road even though it was snowing non-stop.

I might have gone completely crazy had it not been for the single knitting project I brought home, my computer, and the wonderful painting studio we have at the house. I'm going to get some painting done today - something I haven't done in awhile. I know a few of you are having snow days - what are you up to?

  1. A snow day sounds wonderful! I'm wishing for one. Here in NY we get enough snow to be a miserable pain in the ass, but rarely enough to shut everything down for a blissful, quiet snow day. What's the one project? I would be knitting and baking! I'd love to start painting again:) I'd also love to see your paintings!
