The snow dropped down into the valley late yesterday afternoon and we have a glistening blanket of white. By some standards (mine included) this is not really snow, you would struggle to make a snow baby never mind a man.
There is more forecast so I am hunkering down and keeping busy indoors.
I will not be driving to Bethlehem even though the roads are clear now. I would hate to leave the hall at 4:00 to find that the roads were covered. I have driven in snowy conditions but only when the journey was necessary. There are more than enough essential vehicles on the road, casual drivers ought to stay away in bad conditions.
I cast off my sock yesterday evening and cast on a pair of bed socks for my chilly footed friend, they only take a day to knit so if the weather doesn't change I will put them in the post tomorrow morning.
Francesca rang last night to say that her new socks had arrived and that she was wearing them. She also ordered another pair and ( if I have time) another thick sweater, the one I gave her for Christmas has only been off her body to be washed. This helps to justify my yarn stash as I have enough chunky yarn to knit her half a dozen sweaters.
Back to the weather, the East Coast has had dire warnings and many have been evacuated. This is the worst time of the year for high winds raging from the sea, the tides are very high and that wind factor makes it very dangerous. I am very happy to be living here in my valley sheltered by the mountains.
I am off to make my breakfast, and another cuppa, so keep warm and safe. If you are living in the sun remember to slip, slap, slop and keep cool and safe.
