Many of you may already be experiencing winter storm Liam …he’s on the way here as well. The forecast keeps changing. Yesterday they said 1-3 inches of snow on Tuesday night and 1-3 on Wednesday. Then that changed for 3-5 on Wednesday. Then it changed to 1-3 / freezing rain…now it is at 3-5 / freezing rain.
On Monday I had just been up for a wee bit, when around 6:00 I received a text from my DIL asking if I could watch the kids due to the 2 hour school delay. What? I didn’t see much snow out there. However under it was ice, so this seems to be a common pattern lately.
For those of you who do not have this experience, let me tell you…. it’s so much fun to take 5-6 inches of snow off of your steps, walkway and car just to discover ice underneath, all in bitter temperatures :)
“At time like these I am glad to be a dog” says Koopa, my youngest son’s dog, a blue nose pit bull.
Recently I finished up a Little Basket, the last two sections of this EPP Starflower, and the last little Elizabeth’s Pride applique block.
Elizabeth’s Pride has a large center applique block with an Eagle. I am not sure if I want to make that block or a floral alternative so I’ll think on that for awhile :) One reason is that I used the Eagle block for a different quilt a few years ago. There are plenty of other things to work on while I come to a decision :)
And whatever I have to shovel or scrape in the morning I remind myself that this will follow eventually :)
For those of you in the path of Liam I hope that you are safe / will be safe.
