It’s surprisingly wintry here. Like, “actual wintry” not “Pacific Northwest wintry” (which is where it’s 45 degrees and raining and everyone’s lawn turns a nice vivid green). The snow started last night, and it just didn’t stop.
Here’s my railing at a solid 6″ of snow. It eventually maxed out at 8″ before it got to the point where more snow just compacted itself further, instead of getting taller.
(That is the world’s worst ruler, by the way. It’s impossible to read, but as a knitter, I use it all the time. I don’t know why I haven’t thrown it away and bought a legible replacement.)
The snow also brought fallen branches, which were no doubt responsible for this morning’s five-hour power outage.
Sometimes I complain about my antique iPod. But look how much battery life it had left after playing me podcasts for four hours this morning!
One charge gives me about 30 hours of listening time. I’ve heard the newer models last… not quite that long.
