Hot Pink Yardstick


11in = 28cm and guess what? We're supposed to get 20cm more snow tonight and tomorrow. The first few flakes are starting to tumble out of the sky as I type. I think this is the latest I've ever posted and that's because our power just came back on after going out around 9pm last night. We had a swell candlelit day here at Chez Snapper, hot bread and tea on the woodstove, a visit from our neighbour, a little walk to the village, just a great Saturday all the way around. And there will be Sunday Soup tomorrow.

Snap , at least you bowed to your US friends and gave us the Inches. Merci beaucoup! Now for the weather. Loss of power is what makes me a Grinch about snow. That said, I want a Sunday soup recipe.. I MIGHT make it if it ever gets really cold here. Tomorrow maybe. Chez Snapper sounds like a wonderful place to be. Maybe one day....but only if you'll sing every night while I drink wine! Razzamatazz!

Hi Snap, there is a lot of snow, here in Mexico City its sunny in the day and a little cold at night, but never snow, so looking to your great pictures is fun and illustrative. I can imagine the problem with the power, but I'm sure you have a great time in these days. Have a great Sunday and thanks for visiting.

Hey, I always give measurements in metric and English, sometimes with a grumble about why our measurements are so stupid. The hot pink meter stick is ideal for snow. So much easier to read at a glance than the rain gauges my in-laws out in Kansas use.

You can't miss that color in the snow, that's for sure!

I hope your power doesn't go off too often. Stay safe and keep warm.
