In addition…

…to Monday’s post about Snow, Snow and more Snow, here are a few pictures that my Venetian cousins sent of Venice sadly under water but beautiful with a dusting of snow. There’s lots of snow going around.

A music link to Patricia Snyder’s Snowbound to Kick Start Your Weekend, as we’ll be digging out:

I don’t know about you, but I’d rather be skiing during this blizzard:

Here’s an art opportunity that I wanted to mention before it’s too late. The City of Seattle is looking for artists to paint murals on 46th Street. Click on this Fremont Universe link for details. Applications are due by February 19th.

Shazam! Snow, Snow & More Snow

Shazam! The Saints won the Superbowl!…I’m still in shock! And Wow what a snow storm we had over the weekend, over two feet and another storm is on the way this Tuesday. This might hamper the meeting I’m hosting for my entrepreneurial women’s group. I’ve ordered my King Cakes but I’m not sure they’ll be able to get here or if the ladies can with already impassable, unplowed streets. Just some uncertainties to worry about but for now, we’re enjoying the snow.

We walked down to some friends’ house to have dinner and no one was on the roads. There was a little more activity when we got to the heart of town and power lines down across some streets.

We may build another one, but here’s my initial attempt to sculpt a snow butterfly. This is how we used the twig branches from the downed limb that just missed my husband’s car. It looks like a funky bug, so I’ll see if I can turn this into a caterpillar.
