Snow Snow Snow Snow Hat Snow
That's the 8" of snow from Super Bowl Sunday, out on our deck. Yesterday, we thought it would be fun to see how much more snow we could get out there:
Apparently this is the worst winter in lots of years around here. I agree. This weather sucks. Mega hardcore sucks. I twitch every time I see another snowflake. Briony seems to think that it would be worse if it were 32ºF and rainy. I am pretty skeptical of this claim. On the plus side, once the blasted snow finally stops it's kind of pretty outside. Also on the plus side, we are DEFINITELY getting our money's worth out of our homeowner's association this winter, since they come by practically every day to clear our driveway and walkway.
Also on the plus side, they cancelled classes yesterday, for the second time this year! Apparently they never cancel classes. The last time they did before this year was when a tornado went right over the top of campus. I knew it was going to be bad yesterday when I got out of bed at 7:30 and I couldn't tell where my yard ended and the street began.
Staying home in my jammies all day was pretty fantastic. I made an Unoriginal Hat! I also managed to finish one of my Craft-a-Thon design contest projects!
In real life, the hat is much cooler than it looks in the picture. It's dark black, and despite the fact that I used natural light on a cloudy day, the picture still overexposed. Shoot. I love the hat though. I have too many brightly colored things. I think this will calm things down a bit, wardrobe-wise.
I am excited for the Craft-a-Thon tomorrow! I hope lots of people come and make things for the preemies! We have worked so hard to put it together, and it's going to be very interesting to see how it goes. I am also excited, because it will be a good excuse to buy some knitting books without feeling guilty. After all, it's for the babies! I can't wait to see what people have made for the design contest!
