The Weather Outside is Frightful

Last Sunday the Ottawa Valley got dumped a lot of snow that is. Throughout the area, we got between 37-50 cm. That's 14.8- 20 inches for those of you not metrically inclined. Insane is what I call it. I mean really people....what are we suppose to do with all this snow? Here is view from my back door during the storm. The blurriness, this time, cannot be blamed on my camera or photographic skills. The fuzzy look is from the continual curtain of snow falling.
This is my front deck. It's kinda sad that we haven't removed the snow from the last massive snowstorm we had 2 weeks ago. I've been busy knitting...not sure what DH's excuse is. I decided to stretch my legs and do a bit of shoveling. and discovered at it's highest point, the snow on my deck is up to my mid thigh. And that is just wrong!!!! Very Wrong!!!

The snow is still powdery so I quickly make progress. I got rid of about 1/5 of the snow.....just enough to look impressive but not enough to make DH think that I'll do the whole job myself. So as I am putting in all this effort, working up a sweat, engaging in this backbreaking work...what is my dog doing??????

She is just standing there....watching me. That dog is is a born supervisor, I think that she gets it from the kids.

I've finished the green sweater. I didn't take a picture of it as I couldn't wait to get it out the door. I really need to knit something for me. Wahhhhh, I can't! I've got two more projects that I've been hired to do. Enough of my pity party.....

Until next time
Yours in Yarn,
The Fibreholic

Ok, that would be enough snow for me for the season, I am going to Watertown NY on Christmas Eve for a week, I hope it isn't quite as bad but Kristen says you live very near her sooooooooooooooo.

And dogs are very hard task masters. Mine *know* when I'm slacking and remind me to get back to work.

From here it looks really pretty and you can't get me with a snowball. ;)
