My official snow total for Snowzilla was ten inches. That was what stuck on my table in those fierce winds. I'm pretty sure that's not all that fell.
I can speak with some confidence on that matter because I spent yesterday digging out. My driveway is very long and all uphill so it's a lot of work. The Mister starts at the top and I start at the bottom and we meet in the middle. Since we leave the cars at the top when they are calling for bad weather we only dig a path. Trying to dig out the whole driveway in snow this deep would be crazy.
Then I dug a path to the shed so the cats can go hide under it if they wish. That little gray thing in the distance is the shed. It's waaaay down the hill. That was a job.
I also dug them a path through the woods to their favorite log pile. Happily, they all showed up for a good meal once the storm was over. One even came in on the last night of the storm and stayed in all night without a fuss. That's how bad it was out there.
It was still cold but the sun felt wonderful.
I took the sled for several runs through the yard but it was too much work to walk back up the hill in the deep snow. It was over my boots in places.
Back inside I ripped back my Thick and Quick cowl and cast on a simple garter throw with the yarn. This is going to take forever but it will give me something to work on when I feel like knitting but I don't feel like thinking.
I got the sleeves attached to the yoke on my White Pine cardigan.
That was a job and a half. Now it's a giant slog of a cable knit. It won't be done anytime soon.
All the ends have been woven into Son's cardi. Now it only needs to be blocked and the buttons sewn on.
I did end up casting on some new Lopi snow mittens. You can't have enough in weather like this. I have a sink full of wet ones right now.
