The snow showers stopped just before lunchtime today and have made their way further north to Christchurch and beyond so people there are now feeling the polar blast. The roads into and out of our city were closed this morning as were many in the suburbs and throughout the region. They were icy and dangerous and the police warning was to stay at home unless travel was absolutely necessary. So a day at home for all!!
Snow + hills = impossible driving conditions
Some people ventured out, though, and from where we live we could see them sliding off one of the steep curves of a road and into a ditch on the side of it and that is where their cars stayed till late afternoon when the tow trucks could make it up to where they were. I wonder how much the tow trucks and the panel beaters will make out of this.
I have done the prep work for another hexie pincushion using paper piecing again. This time I started with a 1 inch hexagon. A little handstitching and stuffing and it will be done. I was able to take the photo outside this afternoon and had to use the lid as the snow was still piled high on the outdoor table.
