It started snowing yesterday around 11:00 a.m.
These photos were taken around 4 p.m.
Had to get that flag photo in. You know how I have a thing for snowy flags.
Our neighborhood snowplows are keeping up a constant vigil. Yesterday, they were having a good time red-necking up & down the hills. Today, not so much. Today, they are barely moving.
Snow totals so far are hard to measure. I went out this morning and because of the drifting, some places measured as little as eight inches while it was up over my knees in other places. And I should probably tell you, I'm tall. I have high knees. It's supposed to continue snowing until 8:00 or 9:00 p.m. tonight.
So far, our power is still on and we still have plenty of food, booze and yarn so all is well in our little household. While I hear that Richmond's Nickel Bridge is closed to automobile traffic & they are sledding on it,

I'm keeping busy knitting. I finished the second Marigold sock, although I do need to kitchner the toes. I'll wait until the snow is gone for that because I probably need to be sober for kitchnering.
I started a Hitchhiker scarf using Knit Pick's Hawthorne in the Irvington colorway. While I love the fluctuating blues and I enjoy knitting with Hawthorne, I am a teeny tiny bit worried about that much garter in a basically solid color yarn. It's a fantastic, mindless TV & weather watching project though.
About a week ago, I dug out an abandoned scrap yarn mitered square blanket & have since been knitting one square a day. Last night I picked it up to knit the obligatory daily square & never put it back down. Turns out, it's warm & cuddly and a great snowy night project.
If it's snowing at your house, I hope you have food, booze & yarn. Stay safe and warm!
