We’re having a heat wave!

Yesterday, while Bug was running all over the house and being loud, I realized that it felt terribly quiet in the house. I couldn’t quite figure out why. Then I realized it. For the first time in weeks the heater was not running.  Was my heater broken? No, for the first time in over a month, the temps raised all the way up to 26F.  The heater just didn’t need to be on.  So I looked out at my driveway which I had salted earlier in the week. It had been too cold for the salt to work, but now it was actually dry!

This morning I woke up at 5am. It was 23F at 5am.  This feels like a downright miracle!  The temps are predicted to get above freezing this week, which I suspect will cause even more mess on the road from slush, and a ton of melting snow.  On the other hand, we need to somehow get rid of some of the drifts, and I will welcome the ensuing slush for the time being.

I’ve worked pretty hard on Bug’s blanket this weekend.  I am on square #5 at the moment and all seems to be going well besides my bold statements about not wanting to block it once it is done, and then seeing that blocking will be most necessary.

I am really appreciating the colors I picked for this.  They are most gorgeous.
