So you know how we got a little dusting of snow yesterday? Well, it didn't stop. That slight ground cover turned into a blanket and by the end of the morning it was a full out blizzard. Snow fall warnings, ghost town roads, and panicked Victorians were all the buzz and school was even canceled! Wow! A full out snow day! I still had to work and even though the majority of people were frightened of the thought of driving, my trip home was a breeze. The biggest threat is all the stupid people on the road who don't know how to drive in the snow (and the fact that Victoria has two snow plows and loads of busy roads to keep up with)! So how much snow validates a snow day here? Take a peek:
Ooop! My ivy and bamboo got a bit of a snow covering! Here's the rest of the yard:
Apparently 10 cms is enough to close up the town for the day and with the forecast seeing nothing but more snow for the next few days I wonder how people will deal! I took the opportunity to enjoy the deserted-ness and go shopping for some yarn. Why you may wonder? So my sis can knit me some adorable totoro mittens like the ones Cindy made for Sarra:
Ahhhh!!!! Those are totally the cutest mittens ever! Micheals was completely empty making a perfect shopping experience since loads of staff was available to help, tons of stuff was on sale, and I even had some coupons! Hooray! Now to get ready for my mom and uncle to come visit tomorrow (and then take the yarn up to my sis so she can get knittin')! How is your day going? Have you ever had a snow day?
