12/6 Good Morning!
It is 25 here and lots of frozen spots on the road in.
the bad news, our power went off last evening about 7:30 and we had the gas fire going anyway, so at first it was fine. I finally went to bed about 9 and during the night the power came on and off at least 7 or 8 times. usually on for about 5 min and then off again for about 1 hour or more. i missed my electric blanket!! however, we were warm from the fire and the fleece blankets we used. Then this morn the power pops on and off again and finally stayed on long enough for me to shower and dry my hair. when I left for work, there were numerouse power crews in our neighborhood, as well as on down the road at the transformers.
as a result, I knitted about 10 rows on the sweater and had put it down to read a little thankfully, so it was all put away when everything went black.
how's your day going??

Right now we've warmed up. It's only -12C right now outside {10F}. That's a far cry from the -20 weather we've had for the last week or so {about -5F}.

*wishes she was knitting her Skacel sweater to keep warm with rather than socks for Christmas presents*

Well we are currenlty at 5 (-9 windchill) with light snow

Anyway.. it's been an interesting morning.. snowed overnight.. bout an inch.. so AGAIN this am there was a backup on the highway.. (which never happens around here) so people were being idiots.. then I walk in and hear there was a car on fire in the parking lot at work here..

Man what a wonderfull morning..

On the plus side, it's so cold mice are retreating into the house, so it gives the kitties good practice .. they got two yeterday (That we know about).

And I got some knitting done on my scarf, it's in the "What'ca knitting area"

And on me blog (As in the profile).. All in all it's been an odd start to a day

We had a beee yooo tee fullllll sunrise this morning. I think humans have a some kind of genetic reaction to the colors of sunrises. We just have to go OOOooooOOOooo when we see it.
