SNOW DAY #12 or 13 (?)

Is it snowing at your house? HOLY MOLY ... we're having a blizzard! It's been snowing since Tuesday afternoon and it's still snowing Wednesday evening. Here's the cute husband playing with his new snowblower. Who would have thought we'd need a snowblower? Some years we get a winter total of 12". So far this year ... 77.5" and it's still snowing!
Here's our mailbox. Not sure if the mail carrier can even get to it.
After the 20+ inches we got over the weekend, the cute husband cleared off the deck table. Here it is at 11:00 this morning. It's 8:00 at night and still snowing.

So ... that's how cute husband spent HIS day. This is how I spent MY day. I cut out the pieces to make this bag exactly a year ago. It's for carrying a cutting mat and rulers. Today - finished!

Here's the apron I cut out before Christmas and never sewed a stitch. Today - finished! This isn't a great picture - the apron is really much cuter.
AND ... because I needed to have a project that would allow me to watch the snow ... did I mention we have A LOT of snow? I decided to learn how to make "toe-up" socks and to double the learning curve ... 2 at a time socks! So far, so good.

Just heard on TV - we've gotten 20+ inches AGAIN today. That's over 40" in a week!
