Random things again:
It's snowing. It's been snowing for three days and the weather service promises the possibility of snow for the foreseeable future.

I've started filling the bird feeder again.

I went and complained about the (lack of) service we're getting on road plowing. We live on a spur off of a loop. Obviously it is much quicker (if you are a road plow) to swing around the loop and ignore the spur. Equally obviously (if you are not a road plow but a fairly low sprung car) the pile-o-slush-and-ice left by this maneuver is rather difficult to climb over, even when the actual amount of snow on the road is not a serious problem. The Sup't saw my point without any quibble and promised to speak to the drivers. It was squeaky clean last evening and not too bad this morning. We'll see how long it lasts.

I've gotten up to the elbow (for the third time) on J's Oberstdorf sweater sleeve. He was mentioning that it would be nice to have it for this weekend (Hah!). I'm just hoping that this weather isn't a flash in the pan. Last winter we didn't get weather like this until the end of January. If we get this now and then nothing left after I get Oberstdorf done, I'll never hear the end of it.

I measured the two skeins of charcoal grey that are finished - I have about 1000 yards so far. I think three skeins will be all I need at this weight...

J should know not to make comments like that! Hand him the needles!

Rain here, making the plants and critters happy. I might become accustomed to temperate weather in another decade or so. Sure appreciate not having to worry about pipes freezing, but then that wasn't an issue with the bucket and creek either...
