This morning, a weather alert and another winter storm to hit this afternoon and last until tomorrow. The icy kind. Power loss alert from the electric company. March arrives as a lion.
I like lions. The wild side of a cat. March is a month of change. A full spectrum of lion patches are forming from stray scraps of self. You never really know what March will usher in. I love March for that.
The snow has all but blocked out the morning light that fills the warm room from overhead.
Interesting light for photos.
But not for sewing...
I turned a light on.
I sewed a few warm scraps together before building the morning fire. They warmed me. They did.
I made coffee. The man called from Turkey. He is getting a cold. The boy sent a video from his phone to mine...driving through snow in Illinois. Spirits high.
The roads are bad here. I am not going anywhere. I am going to empty a closet and give whatever is in there away. Because I have no idea.
My neighbor stuck on the private road. The other neighbor stuck about 30 feet in front of him. Alternating rain and snow and driving don't mix. I am still in my pajamas.
I've just been stitching. I would take the jeep out and give them a push but I've learned even four wheel drive is useless on a day like this. They will eventually snow blow and dig their way out. So they can get stuck again somewhere else.
I probably will not get dressed till Wednesday. When the freeze lets up. 12 more inches on Sunday they say. February.
We are pretty much on ice here and the snow just started to come down heavily. Local Roads closed. Power outages expected so I will power down for now...
