The Farmer's Almanac is saying our neck of the woods -- the Rockies states -- is going to get more than our share of cold and snow this winter. The Great Lakes states are going to have it colder than usual, too... go here for more specifics, including your neck of the woods.
I find this particularly interesting, since both the Brick and I have felt we were going to get hit this winter. We jumped very quickly into more fallish weather... our dogs have grown quite heavy coats...and somehow it just 'feels' like something is coming.
Having said this, the National Weather Service disagrees. They say we're getting warmer-than-usual weather.
We'll see who's right.
In the meantime, I have been having a lot of fun putting together Hanky Panky squares from a client's old handkerchiefs...they're all neutrals, with a splash of color here and there. Although the end result is much more subdued (and more than a tad elegant!) than my usual color-wild students, I think the resulting coverlet is going to look quite lovely. Sixteen squares total.
Back to work...and to see who Judge Judy chews out today. By the way, if you want to get a personal viewpoint of the L.A. fires, try Laurie's blog at Crazy Aunt Purl. She's been watching the fires from her work office...and they look spooky.
