An Early Winter Snow Storm!


We got dumped on! A storm blew over our area from Saturday evening through Sunday evening. The temperature dropped to -10C! The wind blew in gusts up to 70km/hr! Heavy snow fell, creating blizzard conditions! I could not even see the houses across the street from us! We even had a bit of thunder and lightening! The storm blew in from the south east, dropping 30cm of snow and creating a 1m high snow drift outside our back door. We had to dig our way out! It took all day to shovel the driveway and find our car!
Today the storm is but a memory! We have beautiful blue skies and a few light flurries. The snow looks very pretty on the branches of trees and bushes. Everything is sparkly! But it is still very cold and dangerous for walking! Soooooo...... The question is: What do you do when life gives you snowstorms? Do what I do! QUILT!!!!

Wow, that looks like a fun quilt. Yes, crafting on a snowy day is the best.

Oh .... I think the wind blew some of your snow from your roof to our backyard. We also had a hard time to open our backdoor and had to dig our way out. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi apocaknits! Nothing to be shamefaced about! Your quilt looks great! Why are you comparing yourself to me? The quilt I posted is certainly not my first! Although it may be my last! But more of that on my blog later.....
You are on your way to becoming a creative quilter! Keep up the good work!
