Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

After a blizzard of hyperbole (from the TV news) and 10 hours of snowfall, here's a view of my house. You can see the specks of snow still falling. MSU called off classes yesterday and the MSU Museum closed, too, so a day off for me. I had an appointment for a check up at 9:15am and canceled since the neighborhood isn't plowed. As Tom pointed out, no sense getting into an accident on the way to the doctor (Well Doc, I was fine until about 15 minutes ago when I crashed into the snowbank).

I found another use for my quilting ruler. I went out at about 9am to take these photos and took the snow measurement with one of my rulers. So far 12.5 inches with maybe 4 more to come on my front lawn.

Tom made pancakes for lunch since LCC is closed too.

Last night I stopped for groceries on the way home. Meijer was packed. I haven't seen this many MSU students buying liquor and snacks since the blizzard of 1978. I heard a student on his cell phone making plans to go to a snowball fight with over 2000 in attendance.

So I think I'll work on Katy's chair cushions and mend Colleen's blue jeans today while watching soap operas and Bette Davis in "The Little Foxes."

If we get lots more snow I'll probably re-measure the front lawn.

Till next time.....Happy Quilting.


  1. Stay safe and warm...a snowball fight with 2000 college students? The doctors are going to be busy!

  2. LOL! Your student comment reminds me of Hurricane Florence during my internship in which I prepared by buying Doritos, Beer, Duct Tape, Candles, and a giant inflatable Gumby.

  3. A giant inflatable Gumby, it's good to know you got the essentials.
