Yesterday’s news

[I mean the title literally – I took these photos yesterday, but didn’t have time to post them, as work is suffering extreme chaos right now. So pretend it isn’t sunny and warm (well, right around freezing, which is at least warmer), and instead, think of yesterday in central Pennsylvania.]

I miss my dye studio.


Despite the apparent fluffy whiteness, I actually left the house yesterday in the freezing rain. Even the winter-loving dog was unamused.


I only get a snow day if Penn State closes, and Penn State never closes, though everything else in the region was shut down. My down coat is a good insulator. By the time I got halfway to work, I was warm and toasty, but covered in a thin layer of ice.


As was everything else.


Fortunately I have these fabulous yaktrax.

    That would shut Portland down, probably for days. I do miss winter. I got very happy the two times we had snow this year.

    I think it sounds divine! Here in Cairns, Queensland, Australia we have barely had a day under 30 celcius in months and it would be lovely to be cool again. It’s too hot most of the time to even be bothered to get in the pool- by the time you get home, you’re exhausted. We should swap for a few weeks! Thanks for the photos, though- I felt cool just looking at them.
