How does this look for a warm and cozy weather forecast? It surely has me counting down the days til I go home (Louisiana) – 15 days! As much as I love MO, our two winters here have made me realize I want to go south and I wouldn’t mind at all if it happened tomorrow. It won’t happen so I’d better just knit myself some more warm socks and shut up about the ice.
Last winter, we had more snow that they’ve had here in years and years. Everyone assured me that was a weird winter and it wouldn’t happen again. This year, we’ve had more ice than they’ve had in years and years. The weatherman can tell us exactly why it’s happening but dang it . . I’m tired of walking around on ice trying to convince Speck that it’s ok to walk on it and go do what he has to do. And, I know Vince is sick of scraping ice off his truck. Last winter he parked in the garage and I’m betting he’s wishing he was parking in there this winter too.
We have a lot of ice on the ground this morning — I’m betting at least an inch, maybe more, and it’s still falling. We are lucky in that it is coming down as sleet and not freezing rain so it isn’t sticking to the trees and power lines but the roads . . that’s a different story. Schools are canceled so at least Chad doesn’t have to get out in it.
Not much I can do about the weather so I suppose I’ll just go sew or knit.
