Digging Out

The snowfall ended, the sun came out and we got our first look at what Mother Nature bestowed on us.
This is my hubby, Ed.  To give you an idea of how much snow there was...he is 6'3" tall.  When we opened the overhead garage doors....this is what we saw.  Where to start?  Let's try the side door.

Hmmm.  These drifts were up against the side garage door.   He started to shovel there, but there's just too much.  Eventually, he dug us out along with the help of our neighbors.  We are blessed with the very best neighbors anyone could wish for!  Now we're experiencing the deep freeze.  Oh we say in Chicago....if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes.

I've been starching and cutting the fabric I showed you the other day and will begin piecing today....yippee!  On Monday, I should have some blocks to show you.  Oh....and a new contest to tell you have a great weekend and stop by again!!


  1. Here in Mid-Mizzouree, we are like you guys, it will be July before we see the ground again.
    Have a great weekend sewing!

  2. Well, at least you didn't have the sub zero temps to go with all that beautiful snow. When hubby came to bed the other night, it was -26°! Brr! We only got a few inches of snow, too. Our deep stuff will come in March and April here in the CO mtns. Thank goodness for wonderful neighbors; we have them too, and what a blessing they are!

    Stay warm,


  3. Goodness! That is a lot of snow! Stay warm.
