Oh the weather outside

We are currently getting smashed by a winter storm. Last night we got 2 inches of snow and another of ice. Josh and I went to get some insulation for the crawl space and actually spun out on the road that goes to Lowe's. Luckily all those years of doing doughnuts in parking lots served me well and we were fine. We spun IN the road, not into the ditch. The sucky thing was that Lowe's was all out of the R-19 polyester insulation we wanted and I just couldn't bring myself to buy fiberglass insulation. That stuff is dangerous and it's bad to work with.

Today I am home because we are under a level 2 snow emergency so driving is discouraged. The snow keeps falling faster and faster. I tried to convince the husband to go out and take a picture, but he says he's not going outside in this. Good side is, I get to work on my lovely legwarmers and hope to finish them up today. That will qualify them for the December SKA challenge. Bad side is, I will miss my first yoga class. I've been practicing Forrest yoga for about four years now and I really love it. Sadly when we moved from California I had to leave my classes behind and I haven't felt motivated to do it on my own. I found a very nice place that is connected with the local yarn shop, Temptations (, and was excited to get back into the groove. I guess it will have to wait until next Wednesday. Bummer.

I'm ready for spring so I can enjoy my knitting nook upstairs. It is way too cold up there right now. Doesn't it look inviting?

  1. I would think Josh would want to go out in the cold!! And yes your little knitting nook looks inviting. Plug in a space heater and enjoy!
