We have a really looooong driveway, and this snowblower deserves a medal for clearing it all out for us. Hubby spent the better part of yesterday with his snowblower. He managed to clear enough so that we could get out if we absolutely had to. As of right now, after 3 more hours out there, hubby finished and we can now drive down our driveway to get out.
Pete, the fish is no longer with us. He passed away early this morning. Poor Rachel is upset. It was weather related.
She camped out in the cold last night with lots of blankets. Since she has a gas hot water tank, she could keep Pete warm with warm water. However, early this morning, the landlord came in and shut off their water and filled the pipes with antifreeze. No way to keep Pete warm. Rachel said her apartment was 38 degrees inside.
Pete froze. What a way to go. Poor little guy. It was a love/hate relationship between the two of them ... But she has enough heart to not want a living thing to suffer.
So Rachel is without a place to live right now and she's upset about her fish. Most students go home for the weekends there at Cal but they'll be coming back today so she'll temp move in with a friend, once they come back to school today.
For now, she's safe and warming up at her boyfriend's apartment. His power came back on this morning.
Poor Rachel. I wish she weren't so far away. She was laughing and making fun of me for worrying about her last night. "I'll be fine, mom. I have lots of blankets, mom" This morning, after waking up cold, she wasn't laughing.
In the meantime, to keep myself from worrying about her, I've been busy with a brand new spring design. Snippets of wool were flying everywhere yesterday while I was working on it. I'll be ready to show it tomorrow or the next day.
Happy day everyone .. stay warm!
