Colorado is closed down; the Governor has declared an emergency and called out the National Guard to rescue people in need, stranded in cars or without power at home. Luckily we've only gotten about 7 inches of snow and less wind than further north. I ventured out this afternoon to get some photos for future quilting endeavors. Big, fluffy flakes were falling on my face and on the camera screen. I am so happy that we still have power and heat, as well as TV and the Internet.
Remember what my Lilliputian Prairie Pond loooked like last summer? Here it is today. The fountain is still running enough to keep it from freezing over so the birds and other creatures can
still get a drink. When the leaves start falling I cover the little pond with chicken wire stretched over a hula hoop and that provides an interesting texture to the snow and ice. I'm already thinking about what my January 12X12 project might look like.
We don't usually have a white Christmas so this blizzard is sure messing with people's travel plans. My grandson who attends CU was supposed to fly from Denver International to Sacramento tomorrow to meet with his girlfriend's family for the holidays but they don't expect to open DIA again until tomorrow evening.
Hope wherever you are, you are warm, comfortable, and have peaceful, loving thoughts about the holiday season.
