Even tho some folks think that these are knitting by KnitDweebs I happen to NEED THEM. I live in a very old building in an apt that originally was two cold water flats and with THREE OLD very drafty windows that face south and two OLD very drafty windows that face west and the Hudson River from whence the winds blow. The heating bill for this apt to keep it at 68 or even 65 is astronomical (ask me how I know – sigh, as I am still paying off last year’s bill) – So i keep it between 58–60 in the day and 55 or lower at night.
Makes for cold digits. So after I made a bunch for Christmas gifts – I am finally making a pair for myself. Last night finished the first one.
But finally a pair (well, after tonight) for me!
and here’s the weather forecast: —Tonight: Cloudy skies with a few snow showers after midnight. Low 29F. Winds ESE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow 40%.
- Tomorrow: Cloudy with rain and snow in the morning. Rain and snow will becoming intermittent in the afternoon. High 37F. Winds NE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precip 60%.
- Tomorrow night: Cloudy with rain and snow diminishing in the evening. Partial clearing late. Low 28F. Winds W at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of precip 30%.
COME ON —— SNOW SNOW SNOW (remember the song from WHITE CHRISTMAS?)
DID YOU KNOW that “The song Snow was composed by Irving Berlin, but originally was titled Free, and had nothing at all to do with snow. It was written for Call Me Madam. The melody and some of the words were kept, but the lyrics were changed by Berlin into a song more appropriate for a Christmas movie. For example, one of the lines of the original song is Free — the only thing worth fighting for is to be free. Free — a different world you'd see if it were left to me. This song can be found on the CD Irving Sings Berlin, and a song clip can be heard at The CD Universe site.
