Temps in the Upper Midwest are predicted to be the coldest in 20 years! Yikes!
A couple weeks ago we were bragging about our lovely weather – no snow on the ground and temps 30-40 degrees. It felt like early spring. That’s gone. We didn’t have but a half inch of snow on the ground when the winds became powerful and when there’s no snow to blow around, that valuable black Iowa topsoil becomes what I call “snirt” – snow and dirt mixed together and this is the result.
When the dogs bring this in the house on their feet they leave little puddles of mud. Ick is putting it mildly.
This morning it is snowing lightly.
Even this little bit of snow looks so much better.
Years ago my brother gave me this warm hat and a couple weeks ago I wondered if I’d have to dig it out – sure enough, I need this hat in this weather! And I’m glad to have it!
Last night Reed, Kathy and I sewed in the quilt shop – with Hazel sticking close to Reed.
As I was slicing up Bullseye blocks, I came across this one – Kathy thought it looked like an eyeball. Ha!
After cutting it into quarters, it actually looked better. Just showing you this odd shaped circle so you know I have them, too! Feel better now?
Today college basketball is on our busy schedule with our Big 12 teams matching up with the SEC teams – if you like college basketball, you’re also in front of the tv today.
I’d love to put a quilt on the long arm this weekend but it’s almost too cold to walk from the garage to the quilt shop. One of the heaters in the barn quit yesterday so the co-op guy was here this morning to fix it. Whew!
No matter where you live it’s cold and if you live in the south I completely understand that 30 degrees feels as cold to you as 20 below feels to us. Hang in there, Everybody!
