… before the (next) storm.
The soundtrack to this picture (taken yesterday before the snow started falling again) is people in the neighbourhood frantically raking and shoveling off their roofs* before the next foot or more arrives and the Sisyphean snow removal starts all over again.
Yarn, if you get enough of it, can totally act as house insulation, helping to cool your house in summer and hold in heat during the winter. It’s almost irresponsible, in the face of global climate change, not to have a stash of yarn. — Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (the Yarn Harlot), Knitting Rules!, 2006
*”Roofs” must be American English. I would have put “rooves,” but WordPress spellcheck didn’t like it. I’m valiantly ignoring the fact that it doesn’t like “neighbourhood” either.
