Too Early!

At the end of last week there was a snow storm that came way to early!

It started out beautifully-


It was in the forecast, and this is what I was expecting for this time of the year - a light dusting, still able to see the grass, but that was just the start.


By the second day we had huge drifts of wet, heavy snow.


My husband did get stuck out on the highway on his way home from work (along with other cars, and a tow truck!). I was so happy that we were able to pick him up with the truck, and also managed to pull his car safely off the road. It has been over 20 years since there was such a bad storm that he had to leave his car stuck in the snow - that time he managed to walk home.
We don't normally have snow so early, usually it doesn't start until November.
We were so lucky that we didn't loose power like so many people did.

Luckily now it is melting-


Although since the yard was already flooded, there is just more water.

The pond is just about to the top-

We are hoping for a nice skating rink this winter. 


We were also lucky that there was just a few broken trees (most of our trees had already lost their leaves which helped).

I did get some sewing done-


Another of my favourite Blackwood Cardigans from Helen's Closet. This time out of a black, french terry fabric. I made a length half way between the two on the pattern.

Photo from around-

A Great Horned Owl in the trees. 
We also saw a few hawks and a Bald Eagle.

All the best!♥︎

Bless your heart! I'm so glad the early snow didn't cause you too much trouble. Your cardigan is beautiful...I'm headed right now to check out the pattern. Thanks for sharing. Blessings from a chilly, rainy southeastern WV.

I'd heard about this storm, and wondered how it was affecting you. Glad to hear you're okay and didn't have to be evacuated. That's a lovely cardigan!

Wow that is a lot of snow and so early. Too bad your husband's car got stuck, but I am glad that he was able to get home and the car to safety without too much trouble.
