I’m going to learn a lesson from this, I’m sure. All winter plans need to be carefully considered — with the potential of big blizzards holding us hostage in the Northeast, it isn’t the worst idea to have a Plan B. Luckily today, after almost two hours on the phone, I managed to exchange our “Nice Work If You Can Get It” matinee tickets for another weekend. Considering train service was suspended, roads were closed, and I heard the whole state of Rhode Island was shut down, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one calling Telecharge with a change request. Happily, I’m not losing $200+. Although after hearing “Thank you for your patience” about 200 times, my patience was questionable and the $200 seemed like a small sacrifice to just hang up the phone.

So, onto more fun things. Snow, dogs, and knitting.

I’m plugging away on my colorblock tunic design. I figured out the short rows around the neck that will make the front lower than the back and will hopefully alleviate any fabric pulling across the sternum. The madelinetosh colorway “Tern” is really beautiful …

And in closing, there a few things I’m extremely grateful for today. Snow tires, the generator (because, of course, since we’ve had it we haven’t needed it), and most of all … these darned trees staying in their upright positions.
