Snow! No!! Go!!!

It's been some week! A week of snow, some weak and some not so. Sixteen and a half inches total in my neighborhood, on top of what was still there from last week.

My Backyard Winter Wonderland, Second Storm

Between snowfalls I had a little time to shovel a spot on the porch so the LWDs could make yellow snow while remaining somewhat sheltered.

I took pictures of the pine tree that hasn't been the same since last winter's harsh ice storm. It didn't lose any more branches yet. The baldness is from last winter's snowmaggedon. So sad.

I used my Snow Joe, a shovel, two brooms and two neighborhood boys with shovels. I'm still somewhat snowed in. The boys did the driveway and as they went down their shoveling got narrower and narrower. I guess I can squeeze the minivan through the two snow banks at the curb. My street is covered in packed-down, iced-over snow. We could use a Zamboni. I haven't been out since Wednesday. The two big snows were on Thursday. The worst that has happened is I missed my hair appointment. Things have to be pretty bad for me to miss a hair appointment! This was bad. I rescheduled for next week.

And when the going gets tough, the tough get baking a deep dish apple pie for dessert after the pork chops for dinner.

Believe it or not I've been knitting as well. The replacement Italy sock is complete. Volt is at the last half of the last stripe. I'm on a roll.
