Snow Flurries in Arcata

A week or so ago, I spun up a new yarn for the January SAL theme, 'Snowed-in Colors', in the Spinners Central group on Ravelry. Even thought we *never* get snow here in Arcata (ok, in the 19 years I've lived here, I think it's snowed 4 times, but you know what I'm sayin'.), even though it *never* snows here, I spun one up and called it 'Snow Flurries'. And THEN, yesterday, it freakin' SNOWED! In ARCATA! How cool is that?

Yep, snow. That's my (dead) car there, covered in snow. SNOW! Cool. Cole even scooped up enough to make this snowperson. It is sitting in a sea of hail, after overnighting on the barbecue out on the back deck. Sadly, it's head just toppled over. But it was fun while it lasted.

Now, I'm not sayin' that I *made* it snow, no. BUT. It's a mighty big co-ink-ee-dink, donthcha think?

Anyway, we're just trying to stay warm here. Go buy 'Snow Flurries' so we can afford to buy more firewood! (It is one of the yarns from my Friday shop update; there's also a couple more for your shopping pleasure, at COLORBOMB Creations.)
