The Morning After

It snowed almost all day yesterday.  The temperature hovered just above freezing, and the snow melted and packed as it fell, lowering the accumulation total.  It's difficult to say exactly how much snow we got ... the wind was blowing a gale, and we have drifts in some places and little or nothing in others.  If I had to make a guess, I'd say that there's 6 to 8 inches out there. 
 
It sure is pretty, looking at the view from my spot here at the kitchen bar counter ... Ruby thinks so, too.

 
 
We lost power for about four hours during the worst of the storm.  There are folks west of here who are still without electricity ... my parents, first and foremost.  I will check in on them shortly to see if their power is back yet.  If it isn't, I will offer them our generator ... it's enough for them to run lights, refrigeration, and a heater.
 
I changed my mind yesterday, and I worked in the basement instead of in my sewing room.  I'll show you what I was working on when I finish it.

We just got snow and slush. Fortunately, the power stayed on.

Cute photo.

Very pretty!

I hope your folks' power is back on and that they stayed warm through the night.

I'm curious, now, as to what you were up to in the basement... could be anything, lol!

I spent yesterday working on a quilt. It's my first one. I think I'm going to work on it some more today since it's supposed to be rainy later on in the day.

We got nothing here but little rain and high winds. And today sunshine. Glad for that! Love the pics from your window.

Very pretty view from your window. Hopefully you guys are at the end of the snow season as my sister is getting ready to move.

You got what we got in the last two weeks... I'm hoping we've seen the last of it, too.

Can't wait to see what you are working on. I need to get down to the basement and work, too- xo Diana

I heard that you all got dumped on over there, Connie. So glad that it wasn't any worse than that! Hope power comes back on for your parents soon! :)
