Our city is big... a million now... and pretty spread out ..so.... lots of us live in our own little microcosms... and the weather can be totally different only a few miles away. Imagine our surprise..yet again...when we were watching what we were sure was the local news on the night of the high winds...and saw wild blowing snow...accidents all over the place and big drifts... we just looked at each other. Huh? We have green grass, no snow to speak of...and couldn't figure it out til we actually saw our city skyline in the background just as I was asking where the heck are they talking about? ... but, finally they did say it was us.
One of the guys Mr. BV works with couldn't get out of his property to get to work next day. He spent almost all of it digging out his long driveway... and getting his little machine stuck...then digging that out.... what fun! Well, of course... not....
The airport was closed for hours with the wind gusting to 90 kph...but, all in all...we didn't even know we were in a wintery war zone... happily baking and doing a little green bear head. Today...it's a brilliant blue sky day and +10 C. Crazy eh?
I don't usually do many coloured bears although I have done a few...and decided to do a little green gal to send along with Otis for Sheaffer's Birthday Party and Silent Auction... and...I better hurry up. It's only a few weeks away!
Here was his special day last year ... I can't get there because I live waaaay too far away...but, I like to send a few little things to support his worthwhile cause. A home for abused and neglected donkeys. The Primrose Donkey Sanctuary.
And.... here's the link to what I was baking ... it's on my other blog....
