Snow in Oxford - Fast and Furious
Knowing that my day yesterday would be wildly intense (and mercy, that's an understatment!), I took the last 15 minutes before leaving the house yesterday morning to sketch this ... It's based a photo of one of our neighbor's fields when C and I walked our neighborhood in the snowfall ..
We had a super-busy class yesterday, preparing for the classes, phone calls, mail, demos we had to set up, catching up from missing Monday's lecture and planting, and conducting our overflowing workshop. Instead of the class lasting the two hours we scheduled, we didn't leave the office until 9:45 pm ... I was too 'wired' to get to sleep much before 1 am ... It's barely 6:30 am now, so I know that caffeine will be my lifeline today and I'll fall into bed before 9 pm ... whew ....
We're expecting another 'dusting' of snow tonight and tomorrow. The roads were pretty clear from home to work-- but our neighborhood was still slip/slidey for six miles ... Hopefully most of that cleared by yesterday's warm temps.
I hope to have a bit of time tonight to paint more leisurely tonight ... we'll see how well the caffeine works! LOL
