weather update

The weather report has gotten worse:

Greater Victoria. Snowfall warning in effect. Today..Flurries ending late this morning then cloudy with sunny periods and 40 percent chance of flurries or rain showers. Local snowfall amount 2 cm. Windy. High 6. UV index 3 or moderate. Tonight..Cloudy with 40 percent chance of flurries. Windy. Low plus 2. Sunday..Cloudy with sunny periods and 60 percent chance of flurries or rain showers. Windy. High 7.

My beautiful alpaca-silk hat from soft, heavenly yarn, did an excellent job of keeping me warm on my walk this morning. I figured I should get out and exercise before the snows return, so I walked down to the Moss St Market. They have what is called a half market today, meaning there is almost nothing there. I did manage to get three different kinds of local honey, which is always nice.

There are itty bitty snowflakes starting to fall now, and I hear that about fifteen minute drive from my home they already have three inches of snow on the ground. What is this world coming to?

Wow snow (it was like that when we were over at the beginning of may 5 years ago!)

Loved the info on Vancouver! I really love Vancouver - and adore indian food so we eat it lots - especially great vegetarian food!! Oh the dye looks great and your hat is wonderful and I want my very own tiffin tin (and if you had a few you could store small WIPs in them to carry around!
