One casualty of last week's blizzard may have been our mid-February sheetrocking. There was a nasty fire in a nearby town the night of the blizzard -- the sort where fire crews in surrounding towns call out the plows to go ahead of them on the road so they can make it to the fire? -- and while the business doing the work for us didn't burn down, the owner's residence did. I've been in a holding pattern for 2 years now on this job ... a few more months won't hurt anything. It'll give me more time to figure out my wall-to-wall bookcase!
Not to be outdone by the blizzard last Tuesday, Monday's weather was also very nice and blizzardy. We were on the edge of the Abysmal Travel zone. I had somewhere to go (someone to get somewhere, actually) and ventured out in the morning. Visibility outside of town was worse than in the photo below. I wouldn't have been able to see the sign, and had I been the car, I *might* have been able to see the truck in front of me. Maybe not. I thought about turning around and cancelling, but turning around on a US highway when you can't see anything can be tricky. There could be a car coming the other direction! So I ventured onward, and the visibility cleared to the point of safety after a few hundred yards, and after a few miles, the driving was fine.

But - enough staring at the blog post. Time to go tidy and knit, before I introduce two wonderful ladies into the Art of the Tubular Bind Off, and then work with another wonderful lady on My First Mitten.
It's Wednesday, and I don't have any soup ideas this week yet. Please, suggest away in the comments!
