What was predicted to be more of an event above 4500 feet was changed mid storm to above 3500 feet. But new car or not, snow pack is snow pack and we'll take it, gladly for the most part.
This will be my first and last winter car purchase. Holy crap it was a white knuckle ride on ice covered roads with the old one and home with the new one. Maybe come spring I can get some real beauty shots!
Besides being a Subaru there are two things I already adore about the car, the heated seats (I had them in the last one), and the hands free Starlink. I can tell my car who to call and it will dial them and put them on speaker. Those that know me know my car is often really my office. Cell phone on the mountain kind of bites so I often do a lot of my calling on the road. The heated seats, heaven on a cold morning.
Thursday I managed to get off the mountain and do shopping, with my Mom like always and back to Ashland to do mine. Gene had just finished doing a little grooming on my spot when I pulled in for my one Jeep plow motorcade.
Friday and yesterday saw some fun in the sewing room. I must have had springtime on the brain. ;-)
Two Mississippi Ave tops made it out.
I think there are still two tunics and a pair of pants in the cut pile. I'll grab something to start on after I'm done here at the computer.
A grey linen long sleeve T shirt made it out into the world too.
The fabric was leftover from the pants cut, paired with recycled fabric from a top years ago I ended up not liking. THAT had been made from a vintage tablecloth, much loved because of the dogwoods.
Between the two fabrics I managed a complete shirt.
Friday ended up being a radio day. We have a great NPR classical radio station. But you can bet my TV was turned on all day yesterday watching the Women's March events around the world. Wow! Women know how to do marches (and likely presidency's) right, not a speck of violence, anywhere I could tell. Awesome stuff. Friend Cindie made it down to our local Ashland one, complete with hat. Check it out.
There will be a new section to my blog. "Did That Just Happen?" will have some links to what is going on in our new administration. The new president and the houses bear constant scrutiny regardless of party affiliation.
The Women's March around the world.
Did both the President and his Press Secretary lie about CIA comments, the media and crowd sizes? Oh yes they did. Bigly!
The White House Official website pages for climate change, civil rights and LGBT rights disappeared.
But don't worry, we can find out all about Melania's jewelry line on QVC via the White House web site.
Two words that we should all become more familiar with. Gaslighting and Gerrymandering
Parting shot: Comfy Chair Takeover. :-)
