Snow


I woke up to snow this morning, so I decided to work from home, not a big deal and something we are authorized to do. HOWEVER, at 10:00 I received an email tell me the building was closed and all employees were being sent home. BUT, since I decided to work at home today, this meant I got to put in the full 10 hour day, I was not being sent home and got to keep on slogging away at my computer. Being the good government employee that I am, I couldn’t stop and knit, or make a pot of soup, or even work on my snarled yarn mess. Don’t ya hate it when you make a bad decision like this. . .

It is still snowing (since 6am) and it is getting very deep. For a while there where white out conditions, I could not see past the deck, nor across the greenbelt and it is supposed to snow until tomorrow morning. Did someone forget to mention that it is the end of March?


These pictures are of the snow in the front yard. Di stepped off the walkway and fell to her chest in the snow since it is deeper in the grassy areas than on the concrete. It is hard to believe that it was in the 70’s last week. Look at the sad little daffodil poking its head out of all that snow on the barrel. I wonder how deep it will be in the morning.
This is how deep it is on the deck. I had to open the door (to shake a rug that my loverly cats got too fuzzy to deal with) and a foot of snow fell on the oak floor, grrrr.

My day is almost over (I decided I deserve a lunch break today) so I guess I will go work on the sweater of many stitches.

Have a great day!

Oh poor Di, she looks so confused. There should not be snow now. It is my fear that we will get clobbered one more time here in New England. I hope not.

As for work, just think about how much you got done and if you went home you wouldn't have gotten that much work work done...

I am trying so hard not to be jealous. Our little town didn't get a single snowflake this winter. Harumph!

Snow is in the forecast for us tonight as well... ugh. I'm ready for spring!

Um, as a Canadian, it just seems so wrong for me to see that snow on YOUR lawn, and not mine...

I'm nearly finished with a pair of hand/arm warmers and despite my affinity for warm weather and lots of green...a part of me wishes I'd be able to put these babies to use. ^.^

I hope I'm in the lead for that first place prize! ^.^
