This was the view from the end of our driveway as the snowstorm started on Saturday afternoon . By the end of it all , we got about 35 cm of new snow. Apparently we're just another snowstorm away from shattering the record for most snow in a winter. You can't really see how much there is from that picture , but the snow in our yard is waist high , not drifts of snow , but overall snow , waist high is mind boggling. When you're shovelling the snowbanks are so high you have to shovel up , way up. I was so happy just to hunker down with my knitting , tea and a good movie . I was worried about Casey and Chantal who had a wedding to attend on Saturday afternoon . The reception was on the south shore , just off the island of Montreal . By late evening the roads in the area had to be closed , due to the poor visibility and blowing snow . They got home early in the morning , after it had all died down and the plows were able to get out. I was so worried till I got the call that they were home safe and sound. You know how moms are . Sunday was spent shovelling and trading stories about the snowstorm. All the neighbours were out helping dig each other out . One of our neighbours has 3 young children , who should be the poster kids on how to enjoy winter . They were out with their parents and their shovels and just having a blast. This could last another two months for all they care - bring it on ! The rest of us old folks are just saying enough already !
Here's what kept me occupied On Saturday evening . I finally finished EZ 's February baby sweater . I'm happy with the finished it knit overall , but have some issues with the sleeves . I knit them in the round , which meant a little less seaming , but finishing isn't by strong suit , so I'm not altogether pleased with the underarms. This one will go into the hope chest and I'll attempt another and do the sleeves differently . On the needles at the moment is a birthday scarf for Stefanie to match her Koolhaas hat . Her birthday is on Friday . The needles better be flying this week !
