That cold front rolled in last night, the kind of cold front variously known as Alberta clipper, arctic clipper, or jesushf*ckingchristitscoldoutthere clipper. Yes, that kind of cold front.

High today predicted to be -3˚F, -19˚C for those who roll that way. (That would be the entire rest of the world, I think.) When I let the dogs out last night the door wouldn't stay shut afterwards — wind was so strong it kept blowing it open, even when I swore I had latched it. I even thought about throwing the deadbolt, but eventually I managed to get it latched firmly.

Actually, the forecast for this cold front was worse a few days ago. Now it has moderated.

Yes, that is moderated. A few days ago the weatherpeople were predicting highs below zero forever nearly a week.

Never fear, however; I am wearing a wool sweater — handknit! — and wool socks — handknit! — and will don a wool hat — handknit! — and wool scarf — handknit! — fleece-lined gloves before I venture out today.

For comparison, yesterday I was out gathering signatures on my petition to have my name on the ballot in April (20 signature of registered voters in my district, required by law in WI) I shed my parka early and wore only a cotton sweater with long-sleeved cotton t-shirt under it. Still too warm.

Enough.

And now…

it's time for another rousing game of…

SHOW ME YOUR WALLPAPER!

Here's mine, found on a knitting site I can't remember Madame DeFarge Knits:

Lace mittens

 

It replaced this image, cheerfully lifted from Ryan's blog:

Frozen yarn
That's a rock on a frozen skein of yarn.

 What is decorating your screen these days? Phones and tablets allowed 😉

    Well, my desktop right now is a picture of a wayside “rest” station. But it’s artistic. (college is teaching me about layers of meaning. I think I’d better change it.)
