Winter Wonderland

I love the weather channel's forcast for yesterday. My boyfriend and I had just returned from a lovely snow-walk through the antique district in Kensington, and, after stripping off wet and snowy shoes and pants, we turned on the tv to see how much more snow we could expect. According to the weather channel, we could expect accumulations of "up to an inch" through midnight. We looked at each other in disbelief, as there were already 4-5 inches on the ground, and it was supposed to keep snowing throughout the evening. You would think they could at least send someone out with a ruler... ;)

While on our snow-walk, I finally visited my most local LYS.. Inez' in Kensington, litterally a 5 minute walk from my house. While I was not impressed with the layout (narrow aisles, stuff everywhere... boxes on the floor...) it was nice to see some of the different yarns they carried. Again, I was not entirely blown away by their selection- a lot of the same types of yarns... not a lot of the fancier yarns... but some neat stuff nonetheless. I also noticed the "help wanted" sign as I was leaving- perhaps in a few weeks after all my "choir craziness" has settled down (2 big concerts in January!) I will see if they would need help on the weekends. I don't need a second job, but if the pay is decent and there is an attractive employee discount.... :) but we'll see.

The snow is still lovely- blanketing everything in a pure layer of white. Most pavement has been cleared, leaving ribbons of black snaking through the landscape- really lovely. Now if I could have just stayed at home and knit rather than reporting to work!

The extremely appropriate Latin phrase for today:
"it is snowing"
