Quilt With Us

I live in what is referred to as "high desert". Our altitude is about a mile and we normally have little rain so almost everything that grows requires irrigation. Snow is a visitor. It will show up and then leave a few days later. Not THIS winter. Holy moly, we still have snow on the ground from about a month ago. It just keeps on coming. Then it blows into drifts. Our yard seems to be the collection point for the white stuff. The 25 year old pickup is our shared transportation because the driveway keeps vanishing. The dogs walk over their fence and show up on the driveway. My husband is over six feet tall and he cannot reach up and touch the top of the drift.

Now, you might think, great quilting weather. I do too. I just haven't gotten it done. I guess I'm too busy staring outside. (When I am not shoveling)

Speaking for the west coast.  We had a little snow on New Year's that stay because of the freezing temps out here.  It has now finally melted. Portland Oregon had the most and they are welcome to it as far as I'm concerned. Next week, Heat Wave! Ok so it will hit 50 degrees for the high and the lows will be above freezing.  At least I won't have to go out and scrap something( ice, frost, snow, freezing rain, freezing fog) off my car to go to work in the morning!

Interesting how this winter is bringing somewhat atypical weather to different parts of the country.  We've not had much snow and we can always use the moisture.  It will be interesting to see how the rest of the season plays out.  Hang in there!  Your garden will be glad for the moisture next spring. :)

Beautiful picture...love it when all the trees are covered in white.  Bitter cold here today, but next week we are supposed to have above freezing temps, so we may lose a little snow.  Hopefully some of our awful ice will melt, too.

Very strange winter here in MId-Missouri too.  On Wed the temps got to be 73 degrees; yesterday they were back down to the high 20's.  We were supposed to be hit with a huge ice storm today, but so far no sign of it.  Every school was closed and most businesses so people are going to be very upset if they did all of that for nothing.

We usually have a foot on the ground and we have nothing! Been in the 40-50s and it melted! Love it!

Been a weird Winter here as well. Southern and Northern Maine has a lot more snow then we have here in the St. Croix Valley. So far we have had snow followed by rain or vice versa. The past couple of days it has been in the high 40"s and the only snow left is what the plow pushed in a pile.

Impressive drift, Barbara!  This has been an exceptionally unpredictable winter so far.  Between copious snow followed by drenching warm rains that melts all of said snow, followed by more snow, we really don't know what to expect!
