It snowed, did I say? I have no idea how much actually fell here at the Cat Farm — this due to high winds that blew everything every-which-way. The weatherbeans were calling 18-24 inches (46-61 centimeters). I can’t argue with that. It was certainly more than enough for my shoveling needs. Happily, however much it was, it was Light! and Fluffy!
Around about 1:00, the plowman cometh — actually, the plowman’s little boy, who I first saw only one or two winters ago, riding shotgun in his dad’s truck, hood pulled up ’round his face, snow matting the fur, and a Four Sol grin on his face at the magic of it all. Today, he was driving the truck; sitting shotgun was a kid with a fur-trimmed hood spangled with snow pulled tight around a very serious face. . .
It seems — again, with the wind, it’s hard to tell — but it seems as if the snow’s over, for this storm. I’ll have some cleanup shoveling to do tomorrow, on the steps and the deck. Everything ought to be back to normal, in terms of transportation, mail, and stores being open for business, on Monday.
For those playing along at home, I have three — possibly four — more scenes to finish for Carousel Sun. I had hoped to finish those today, but that was before I took a four-hour nap. Tomorrow, then.
Looking forward to next week, there are various things I need to do in service of the Real World before we hand the house and the cats over to Mary and head down south, to Boskone. Looking forward to seeing folks at the con, and celebrating the Liaden Universe® Silver Anniversary, and the release of Necessity’s Child!
Hope everyone is warm, and dry.
