I have been measuring the snow depth out in the garden box.
I figure I can get the most accurate measurements there since the snow in it is completely undisturbed. This is definitely the most snow we have had since moving to Kamloops six and a half years ago.
|14 inches on December 29; 16 inches on January 7; 20 inches on January 11|
I have a helpful dog walking tip for anyone who lives in an area that gets a lot of snow. If you get 8 inches of snow overnight you might want to take this into consideration the next morning when walking under a clothesline that you usually just have to duck your head slightly to get under.
All of this snow has made me especially happy about the first project cast on and off my needles in 2013. This is the latest Kate Davies pattern, Snawpaws, knit with Excelana yarn.
I loved how the real snowflakes were falling from the sky onto the snowflake pattern on the mittens.
I now have a matching hat and mittens, which is quite a change from my usual dog's breakfast of handknitted accessories.
I'm quite sure the neighbours won't recognize the stranger in their midst.
