I’m sure that most of you have seen the photos on the news by now, of all the snow that we’ve had here in Northern Virginia. The last accumulation totalwas around 30 inches of snow. As you can assume, most people around have been in a state of panic, but John and I have remained reasonably calm. He spent the day shoveling, and I spent the day knitting. In all fairness, I did try to shovel.
Here are some great pictures.
So, yes, we did get a lot of snow. But both my husband and I have lived in New York state in the winter, in addition to myself growing up with a father who lived for some time in Wisconsin. This doesn’t phase me. It is the other idiots on the road that I worry about. That, and whoever plowed our development needs to learn how to do so properly. John shoveled the snow from around our cars out in the path of the plow, so that it would take it away. No … no, of course that didn’t happen. So, he’ll have to dig us out yet again tomorrow.
I did get a lot of knitting accomplished today, mainly on John’s sweater. However, when I had originally ordered the yarn, it seems that I am one or two skeins short. I’ll have to place a Knit Picks order later this weekend! At least all the measurements are spot on, and it does look like it is going to fit him!
