It's Piling Up

The weather's getting bad tonight in any case. 3-5" of snow expected.

Well, we ended up getting about 8" of snow instead. All the schools in the area were canceled yesterday, except of course for homeschoolers and school-at-homes, mwa ha ha ha. They're running out of places to put the snow in parking lots and on smaller streets. We have a narrow strip of grass in front of our place, and the snow is going to overflow onto our front walk soon. As others have said, this is the coldest, snowiest winter I can remember in a while.

I have a bunch of knitting projects planned, which means a pile of yarn. I also need to get into the sewing, but I've been under the weather for a few days, so knitting has been more conducive to how I feel. This also means the big cleaning and sorting project has been set aside for a few days as well.

It's been a colder than usual winter here, too. No snow, of course (snow happens very rarely here and never very much when it does). But during the previous cold snap a week or so ago, it got in the 20s at night (what they call a hard freeze -- you have to drip the outside faucets). With this new cold snap, it's been in the 30s at night and still pretty darn cold during the day.

It's funny to hear Floridians talk about cold. :) Then again, I remember going to Disney World in the 80's during the winter and being cold without our light jackets.

If this global warming keeps up...we'll all freeze to death!

It's so cold here (San Clemente, CA), that the lifegurds on the beach have to put on two speedos!

Even the dolphins are weraing cardigans.
