snowed in

Greetings from my snow, I mean, my house. Which you can barely see because it is covered - covered - in snow.

This is the view from my family room window yesterday afternoon. That's a fence and 2 cars. Can you see them? Yeah, no kidding.

Here is Hubs making his way from the back door to the shed to get the snowblower out. That's the grill in the foreground. Turns out the snowblower was useless against this much snow anyway. We just spent the last 1.5 hours digging out one car. Just one. I am typing this with my arms pressed against my sides because if I lift them my muscles all scream at once. Ow.

Wind chills of -10 = too cold to play outside. So we brought the snow inside. This is Daughter's snowman. She plays happily in a tupperware container of snow until she suddenly declares it "too COLD, mommy!"

There's plenty of time to knit when you can't get out of the house. I have 2 finished sweaters (!!) to show, but I can't move enough to get off the couch and take pictures.

Wow. I've had some snow storms this winter, but I'm still impressed by the drama of those photos. Good times. I love the snowman in a tupperware idea. I'll totally steal that if we have another big storm.

Enjoy your warm house and your knitting!

Stay warm and post some pics as soon as you can - we've finally started to thaw out here and now have a lake at the bottom of our driveway:)

That is a LOT of snow. Wow! You'll have fun playing in it for weeks to come!

Enjoy your knitting time.
