My Soggy White World

We had a storm last night and it's not over yet.  First it rained about 10mm, which then changed to snow.  About 10cm of snow fell, but it packed down and has created a wet, swampy mess.  The guy on the radio cautioned folks to take it easy when clearing their driveways and walks.  It is being called, "heart attack snow".  Needless to say, I won't be going out there to shovel anything.

I took this photo from my back door.  I had to stick my head outside a bit to get this shot.  Water was dripping off the glass roof and onto my head, so I only took this one shot.  The storm came from the west, but the wind was from the east.  I don't understand it either!  LOL  You can see how the wet snow stuck to the east side of everything - the trees, bushes, my fence etc.  A moment after I closed the door, a gigantic chunk of ice slid off the roof and landed in front of the door, right where I had been standing to take the picture.  If I was a cat, that certainly would have been one of my nine lives. So much for winter.  I have had enough.

And now for what I really want to show you today.  I have completed the baby quilt to the flimsy stage.  It is called, "Jungle Path" and is a free pattern that can be found here.  This was really fun to make and I think there will be a few more in my future.  Lots of babies are being born this year.

What a nice, bright quilt. I was out a midnight and then twide this morning shovelling the wet stuff. My husband did it too just before he headed out to work. I think it's done now but those drivers really should slow down so they don't soak pedestrians.
