Snow Day #2....and the real storm....

Last week's blizzard was very hyped.....as they always are...hey ratings are hard to come by nowadays with so much competition....but in the middle of Connecticut, where I live, we got about 7 inches...not that much...we had a snow day and a delay the next day...it had pretty much stopped by 3 and the cleanup could begin....but the eastern part of the state was walloped and they were still digging out...

Today we had a snowstorm, with a much bigger impact on my area of the state (but couldn't be called a blizzard, because the wind gusts were not as heavy).....not sure what the final total will be but...here we are at about 6:45 AM..
It was snowing at a pretty good clip, but small flakes....

by about noon, it had slowed down a bit...
And then about 3:00, it kicked back up again...we started getting huge flakes, then smaller flakes, then a lot of flakes again....
It finally stopped around 6 or so...but temps are dropping to below zero....and everything is going to freeze over....so they just called a snow day for tomorrow.....as the sidewalks will not be cleared enough for the safety of the students....so that's three we have to make up.....no more....but we have two more storms heading for us in the next week....

Fresh snow is always so pretty!

Sounds like a good day to stay in and stitch with a good pot of tea by your side.

I love snow as long as I can stay inside and enjoy it from the cozy warmth of my home.. Lovely weather to crochet :)
