What a winter we are having.  The weather forecast said we would get some snow last night but it sounded like it would be just rain mixed with some snow and then turning to snow by late today.  Instead we woke up to 3 1/2 inches of very wet heavy snow.  It stopped but the news says it will start again in the afternoon and through the night.  I wonder how much we will get?  We briefly lost our power this morning so I hope it won’t be a lot more to make trees and power lines heavy.  What we have now is the heavy wet stuff.  I thought I would do a blog post this morning in case we loose power later.  We do have the generator but hubby is working today and I don’t know if I would be able to get it started – it has a pull cord on it and I am not good at those!

The last time I measured the snow I used one of my sewing rulers that is a little confusing and not clear and concise.  I pulled out a different one (wavy edge) and it has the numbers marked really well.  Just a tad over 3 1/2 inches right now.

Of course this isn’t anything like what everyone out on the east coast got on Saturday.  One of my sisters and one brother live in Northern Maryland about 15 miles apart.  They had a whopping 30 to 36 inches.  Saturday was my sister Vicki’s birthday – here she is in the snow in front of their house.

Luckily a neighbor has a snowplow and cleared their driveway and here it is all piled up in the front yard!

Thank you all for your comments on the border of my quilt that I posted yesterday. I have gotten started on the applique and though it will take awhile to complete I am having fun doing it.  I will need to make time this month to get busy on this months assignment for the Star Crazy quilt.  I have my instructions printed out and now to figure out what colors from my scraps to use and get busy making what they say needs to be done this month.
