Snowstorm 2014

After shoveling for a little while and not getting anywhere I thought it was a great day to stay inside and sew!

  1. LOL, I think it is a lost cause. Definitely a good day to stay inside and sewing is a better way to expend our energy.

  3. I was going to sew all day but had to go out when I heard the neighbors helping me with my newly fallen snow. I swept the walkway and shoveled a bit to widen the path the neighbor kindly cleared. I Don't have as much as you! Happy to be snowbound, since DH took the car to work... His truck is broken in the front yard.

  4. That is a lot of snow, Lori. Hope you can get your car out. We got 1 1/2 inches yesterday here in Victoria on Vancouver Island and everyone was in a panic. Nobody knows how to drive in the snow so almost everything gets cancelled. Even here it was a good day to stay inside and sew.

  5. Here in central Oregon I had to shovel so the Black Dog (Jack) could take care of business in the white snow. He is not a small dog or a short dog but with 18 inches and counting of snow fall there was no way he could lift a leg or get down to business.

  6. Well that puts the 2 inches we got in central Iowa to shame!!! I love snow, but you can keep yours, and I'll keep mine! Happy sewing!

  9. I can relate. My car has looked just like yours more than oncethis winter. We have either had very low temps or snow for almostevery day of 2014. I am ready for spring.
    Hope it stops snowing and you get dug out. Be careful of your back, shoveling is really hard on it.

  10. Wow amazing photos of the snow. I am experiencing the exact opposite staying inside with the aircon because it's 38 degrees C outside, here in Warrandyte Australia.

  11. I won't complain about our rain, because I'd rather be wet than snowed in.
    Beautiful, but you can keep it!

  12. Hi and Whoa!!!! That is a lot of snow!!!!! We haven't gotten that much where I am in KY....stay in and enjoy the warmth and sewing!!!

  13. Oh my goodness I am not missing all that snow, I'd say I pick pretty good year to move from NY to NC.....50 degrees here but raining....sunny in the afternoon so we got a good walk in.
    How many weeks until Spring?

    Happy Sewing

  14. Does Oregon get snow like it gets rain that is measured in feet not inches?

  15. Wow I cannot get my head around having a white winter but looks like you have had more then your usual amount of snow. Now I understand why quilting is so popular in winter in Nth America, because I am sure you are forced to stay home when the snow is this deep! Stay warm!

  16. I looked at your pics and immediately had to go check your location. I am near Portland and we have a mess.

  17. wow~!!!~you really did get some snow~!
    we were supposed to but have only gotten rain. i'm happy for that as the moisture is so very needed.

    i hope the day sewing was enjoyable. i got a few stitches in myself at my guild's monthly 'quilt till u wilt'. scrappy pieced diamonds . . . i have many more to make before i put them together into a project.

    Stay inside and enjoy some stitiching!

  20. I haven't had to shovel snow in years and years. But I have vivid memories of the misery! I hope you sewed all day long.

  21. Wow, look at all that snow!! It's gorgeous to look at, but it does look like a good day for staying inside and sewing for sure!

  22. What - no snow blower? I guess we're pretty used to getting dumped on, but with you guys, it's somewhat unusual. I wish I could come help you. I love snow, if you can use a snow blower to move it.

  23. I'm tired of the snow here too... I'm staying inside to sew also :)

  25. Double YIKES! That was waaaaay too much from one storm! We are expecting another couple of inches to be added to our previous 2 storms... we need melting! :-)

  26. Hi Lori, I hope you didn't get too much more snow. Luckily we only got 2 more inches. I wanted to ask if I could share your post on no reply commenter. Hugs

  27. Unbelievable Lori - can't imagine what that must be like for you trying to get through that! Definitely a day to stay in , stay warm, and enjoy the pretty view outside. Take care :)

  28. That is so much of snow! Stay indoors, sew.. sew.. sew! We are getting another round of snow right now. Some winter we are having!

  29. It's snowing here too, Lori. Again. The entrance to the beach and over the dunes is drifted too deep to climb over / through. I only walked 1/2 mile today.
