A blizzard is a severe storm condition characterized by strong winds and reduced visibility. By definition, the difference between blizzard and a snowstorm is the strength of the wind. To be a blizzard, a snow storm must have winds in excess of 56 km/h (35 mph) with blowing or drifting snow which reduces visibility to 400 meters or ¼ mile or less and must last for a prolonged period of time — typically three hours or more..
Yup, that’s why the local meteorologists are so excited. It’s been a while. Two years since the last blizzard warning… I think I was on Maui, at the time…… Anyway. 2-3 inches of snow per hour and the heaviest 24 hour snowfall in our history. Ever. That’s what they are hoping for. I think they may have it right, this time, after crying wolf, one too many times…..
From the inside.
But that’s not to say we don’t get a lot accomplished what with listening to the weather interruptions of our favorite shows……… Actually, as I was typing, this, the wind shifted and the window turned solid white. I think all the snow that had accumulated, on the roof, came down in one swell swoop! Pretty cool!
We do get a lot accomplished on snowy, indoor days…. This project has been in the works for quite awhile…….. Finally, ready to be pin basted. Finally, finally….. Something, I dread. 6.5 miles on the treadmill, nor any T-Tapp compares to the inner thigh pain of basting a quilt. Teresa, you should come visit and take notes….. Then I can cause *you* pain……… real pain.
75″ x 60″ All scraps. Machine pieced, obviously. Curves aren’t easy, but, oh so rewarding. This will be for me. My very own wall hanging. It will hang in the lower level where I will see it every single day. Those who visit me, down there, can see it, too.
I love feeling so accomplished. And there were many other fun things worked on today., too…….. Can you say Kona cotton solids????
Tomorrow will be another day. Shoveling until my lats shatter…… From frostbite…..
