This is what it looked like right before I left for work today….
We are in the midst of a wicked bad n’oreaster. And we lost power again – probably around 11 this morning, while we were snug as bugs in school. When I finally arrived home, after nearly a 40 minute commute for a five minute trip, we had over 6 slushy, icy, sodding wet inches of snow. And for the first time in my 18 years living here- my road was closed! I couldn’t get past the trees and road closed signs to get to my house. Where I live. You know. Home.
The power is still out at 9 pm. We have a delayed school opening tomorrow. I am laying in bed with my velour pj’s on, wearing Gale (fitting), handknit socks and a pair of fingerless mitts and I’m contemplating a hat. It is 53 degrees in my bedroom. The rest of the house is warm due to ds and I making a superior fire in both the woodstove and the fireplace.
And I’m so very glad to be able to wrap myself up in all these handknits so I’ll be warm tonight.
Jury duty update – I did knit! We were dismissed and although I have to call each night it looks like we are done.
