Monday media

in which our plucky heroine is grateful for snow day averted...

This is sweet, and well animated, and made me cry...


Last night was working on the final adaptation sketches, and inking in of, the Scythian style Three Mountains Baronial charter the interest of not acquiring more gadgets, and the necessity of it being after sunset, figured out that I can use my MUJI paper file carry tote as a nighttime improvised light box... tape paper to the lid, tilt lid at an angle, and shine the LED desk lamp through it! Worked like a charm.

Despite the forecast, last night up here on the plateau we got a mere dusting of snow, unlike many of my local pals. This morning there are damp roads and mostly green grass, with fragments of the snow dusting in the colder corners... but for those who were caught in the storm, or still in the depths of deep winter, this charming snow day announcement made me laugh several times, and hopefully will bring you a smile as well

today's gratitude - dodging the snowfall last night, (though with full cognizance that overall, the less snow we get, the more the drought worsens...) There are no unmixed blessings.


  1. We got close to 2" over here in Beaverton, but it's melting away now. Probably could have gone to my Dr appt, but I cancelled anyway ;-)

    That snow day announcement is priceless! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Glad your snow is melting away... I have no love for snow, but you probably can tell that!

  2. I got a good laugh from the snow day song/announcement. A lot of effort went into that! A record 31 inches fell in Flagstaff a couple days ago, but that's a few hours away. We've just had a lot of rain.

    1. that was probably the best snow day announcement I have ever heard... thinking about snow days took me back to my youth. I spent part of my growing up in New England, and we had a lot of winter snow and snow days
