more snow? where's the global warming when you need it?

difficult to see how much snow is actually coming down, but it's a lot.

another snowstorm is moving in. or should i say, it has moved in. and that actually fits quite nicely with my mood. one moment the world (and the blogosphere) seems like a sunny, nice place to be and the next, wham, you're broadsided by a flurry of a storm you didn't see coming. the weather, all nice and polite and happy and pleasant turns rude and unpleasant. it's really quite disappointing and frankly, i could use some spring.

my weaving class is canceled for this evening. but i've laid in a supply of chai and firewood, so we'll be fine. i've also got a dozen clarity birds to work on:


and if that's not enough to do, we've got a 3000-piece puzzle going as well:


you can see that it should keep us busy for awhile.

Yes we gave our boys the big talk this year about how we probably wouldn't have snow etc etc (as we rarely get it in the UK anyway). Ummmm......

It's snowing in most of Scotland again too, and the temperature is dropping. I am so very over the snow! I'd settle for cold and grey, even rainy right now!

Are people being mean to you? If so, I will happily tell them to 'shut it' for you if you wish!

It sounds like you have a rather lovely evening set up for yourself. x

Global warming?! He's totally here!

Bee said...

I like that molten sun . . . a shame that we aren't seeing more of that. Nothing but dull gray rain here today.

Is the snow bad enough that school will be cancelled?

I love the way you have arranged those colorful birds. You gotta make your own color these days. xx

It stopped snowing for now at our place. I'm sorry you couldn't get to you weaving class because I know how much you like being there.
Some people need to be mean. Just turn away and be your loving self.

Let this be a magical evening.

It's sunny and warm here - wish I could send you some. However, I am going to collect what I need and see how well I can make a bird. Wish me luck.

we have that liquid snow thing going on here...i'm rather sick of it

Your am photo is gorgeous. And wow - it's dark there at 3:06? Yikes. I think I'd be fairly depressed. In fact, I'm feeling a bit that way now (I'd love to see the sun -- hopefully tomorrow it will make an appearance)

Hope pleasantness and happiness come back soon

One of the ironies of global warming is that the winters will get colder - and the snow falls in the UK are happening as predicted!
Enjoy the puzzleing - wish it would get cold enough here to do one...

What is a clarity bird, if you please?

Rainysoul said...

Looks like you've got plenty to do! :) Its been a bitter cold winter for us!

As for the "warming", that's why they now call it "climate change", warmer some places, colder others, and mostly just HUGE shifts in climate and weather patterns with an overal rise in the global (seawater) temperatures.

I am really bored of winter now.

If global warming is real... then winter would be warm!

Vancouver's Enviro Girl said...

Ummm, yeah, sorry about that. Apparently, we are hogging all the global warming. Want to trade? I'm sure VANOC would LOVE that :)

Protege said...

Ah yes, that was a nasty one! I was at work while it kept coming down and the drive home in the evening was rather scary, I tell you. I barely made it up the hill to my house.
It is magnificently beautiful though, I admit. Makes everything light and happy. It can go on for 3 more weeks but then I WANT spring.;)
