i am never mentioning the size of our (puny) snowbanks again, hahaha.
the ones here in maryland are far, FAR, bigger than any i’ve seen in ohio.
i have to make this really quick and knitless—it’s almost time to get ready for class.
yesterday afternoon, somewhere in eastern pennsylvania or western maryland, we drove through the most amazing stretch of scenery and i instantly knew you would like it, too. for about 10 or 20 miles, the world around us was completely encased in rimefrost
thicker and icier than hoarfrost, this is a type of frost that forms in windy, humid conditions, such as those is coastal areas or pockets of highway. because it builds up and ices over repeatedly, it takes on the look of cooked frosting or glazing.
i was driving at the time and david was dozing, bu i shook him awake and slapped the camera bag into his hands—please can you take pictures?? can you do it faster?? (hahaha, my sense of urgency tends to differ from david’s)
unfortunately, we missed getting pictures at the prettiest stretch, where the trees were pressing in much closer to the road. good thing i have the image in my head.
once we got into town, we checked in with kristi and paul at eleganza yarns and then headed down to colombia to meet up with my nephew james and diana for dinner at a highly recommended japanese steak/sushi place
they had the steak and seafood hibachi menu, while david and i literally ate a boatload of sushi. mmmm. it was actually very good
we have a full weekend ahead and i promise to bring you more of it—david may be touring the white house on sunday (i’m so jealous!), and if he does, he’s agreed to take the camera along and do a guest blog about his trip there.
wish me luck in my classes . . .
