O Jonas, My Jonas!

Our first snowfall of 2016 was a blizzard called Jonas.  It was so awesome!!  I am so happy.  I originally had planned a girls weekend at the beach with some friends but we cancelled because of the blizzard.  Good thing we did, it was a doosy!  No doubt you've heard. 

Friday started out nice and cozy with some knit time and coffee in my new mug! Mike's socks are coming along nicely and they should be done soon.

Then Friday around 2pm the snow started to fall.  Joey had to go to work at 4:30 till 11:30pm.  I had to wait up for him to make sure he got home ok, I was so worried.  He parked in the front yard but that's ok, he got home safely.  If you're wondering why he even went into work well, it's because we have a 4-wheel drive and he CAN.  A lot of the folks who work at Target don't have cars that can get them to work, so he feels like he should go (strong work ethic...lovely quality).

 Just remember this photo when you see it again...and remember the snow level.
 It snowed all night...and all day on Saturday, too.  And most of Saturday night.
Gracie wasn't too thrilled.  I was!  
 Mike dug her out a path and potty place.  Poor baby.  (both)

 Remember the slow level by the car.  Snow drifts created mounds of snow at least 4 feet tall in some areas.  The snow is super light and fluffy so it blew all over the place.  Saturday and Sunday were both windy, too.  
 The snow was way too fluffy to make snowmen or snowballs.  Also, you can't even walk across the yard, you sink 3' into the snow!! haha
 I finished my Baa-ble hat!
 Eek!!  Look how high it is!  It was so amazing to watch.  We didn't want to go out every few hours and shovel, so we just let it all pile up.  
 Sunday morning was bright and sunny.  All the white snow made it super bright!  Look how high it is!!
Found out that this is the biggest storm/snowfall in history for the Baltimore area and Saturday the record for the most snow in one day: 25"!
 Snow frozen out over the roof of the house!  You don't want to be under that when it falls!
 I started a new hat called Scrollwork.  Beautiful cables in my own hand dyed worsted yarn in the Loverly colorway.
 Look how high it is along the cars.  Time to shovel all this out of the way!

 Mike swept off the snow while I shoveled the front walk/steps and started around the cars.
 I finished my hat just in time to wear it outside!
 Mike made a path to the street.  Just as he got to the end a neighbor came along with his snow blower and cleared the entire driveway in about ten minutes.  So wonderful!!
 Here's my Scrollwork hat!
 Next on the knitting agenda...BellaMae hat by my friend Dolly!
 And I started listing yarn in my shop!  I have about 12 skeins to add to the shop, the first today and I'll continue all week to add new yarn.

This Midnight Garden sold out about 2 minutes after I posted on Instagram!  I'm dyeing more tomorrow.  Don't have have one, too.

Today I shoveled a path to the wood pile so we could get more wood for fires in the fireplace!  Hey, I got my priorities! 

I hope you're enjoying your day...sunshine or snowshine!

  1. We had 30 inches a couple of weeks ago and I was in heaven. Us Southern California girls are just enjoying the heck out of all the snow, right? By the way, the Arizona Highways yarn is gone. I just bought it and can't wait to use it!!! Thanks, Brenda, and good luck with the yarn sales!! --Lark
