No Snow Melt Yet - Always Knitting

Snow Fort didn't melt yet
 
 
 
my new socks
 
 
seeds came from a conference and are germinating
 still cold, still thick ice on back patio
Squirrels still can't feed with the birds; snow is too deep for them to travel from the fence to the bird feeders.

 abundant sun and cold
 How much of the snow fort will remain when I get home tonight?
 Wagon tracks were lightly covered yesterday morning with the new snow.
Enjoy this pine tree; it might become our live Christmas tree in 2013!!

Snowing at 9:15 AM




Snow was predicted for 1:00 until 9:00 this afternoon/evening.  It came early! However, NOT before I hauled the wagon thru the icy back patio, to the woodpile, to get more firewood.

Knitting and More Snow?

 It's dark and the forecast is for snow at 1:00 today; it's already flurrying in Denver.
Always knitting..................................

Snow Fort

Julie helped Gramma build a fort using the rectangular plastic container.
It looked like this when finished and they were so happy with the outcome. Can you see Julie?
Can you find Gramma? She always wears a hat!

Me and My Shovel


And with the sun's help, it should be clear and dry by 3:30 when the temp drops and all will freeze again.

Today's Forecast = "Abundant Sun"

Squirrels get buried in the 13" so have not ventured from the fence to the smooth area that Jeff made for the birds.
Thanks to the glorious sun and the shovel, our driveway is looking great.  Snow is predicted for tomorrow afternoon.   Love it!  My garden loves it!!

Calling Alexander, Brooklyn, and John Jeffrey

Ready for a wagon ride?  The inside is nice and dry!!

Early Snow Blow

 Total for Storm Q (blizzard!!) was 13" in our neighborhood.

He even got the bottom of our driveway which is often an icy mess.

More Snow, One Plow

 Wow! Denver plowed our street!!

We will plow our driveway; Jeff has delayed start, not til 10:30.
