Enough Already

What’s with all the snow this year?!

I know I shouldn’t complain because Colorado isn’t nearly as bad as the East Coast. We got about 10″ on Sunday, but had a few sunny days since then and a lot melted. But our backyard went from this at 3pm yesterday:

To this when I got up this morning:

That’s another healthy 10″. And I have to drive through it to a physical therapy session in 20 minutes.

Still, I have the good sense to be thankful that I don’t live on the East Coast. One of my brothers lives in Boston, which has recorded a record 7 feet of snow in 3 weeks. It’s all he can do to keep a path to the front door.

His mother-in-law lives a few blocks away, and it looks even worse there.

My friend Lori, who also lives in Boston sent the following photo proving that hell has frozen over:

Wishing you lots of warm woolies wherever you are!

  1. Hi Ann, I thought that since we are talking about winter stats, I would share our stats from Rochester, NY. It has been the coldest February in our history. The average temperature has been a whole 12.2 degrees., 43 + inches of snow. We are running out of room for it. The snow is over my neighbor’s chain link fence. There is more on the way this weekend. I have received a few garden catalogs in the mail that have tormented me with signs of spring. Not much evidence of Spring here.

  2. I used to live in Illinois. The last winter there was so much like what is happening now. That was the last time I shoveled snow because I left for California.

    The current temp in Hell is 4 degrees F. It is definitely frozen over. [Hell, Michigan is a dozen or so miles northwest of Ann Arbor.] Hope your rehab is progressing well. Stay safe..

  4. Here in mid-Missouri we really haven’t had snow this winter.
    It usually melts by mid-day.
    Only once have we had ALMOST A BIG 3″
    The down side is that we’ve not had the precipitation necessary to keep our trees healthy or grow crops.

    Still sending Healing Thoughts your direction.

    hugs ‘n smiles,

  5. Hi Ann, I just wanted to drop you a line to say hello from a new knitter. At Christmas, I bought your highly recommended How to Knit Socks book (but I’m not confident enough to try a pair yet!), then I signed up for your course on Craftsy about fixing mistakes which is top-notch, then I found your site and read about your accident at Christmas. Oh no! I’m wishing you a speedy recovery and thank you for all you do for the knitting community.
