This year is the snowiest winter on record for Boston. No doubt and we are getting a storm slated for Thursday. By the way it is only mid February!
While I'm some two hours west of Bean Town, we have over 3.5 feet on the ground. Lots of icicles hanging from the roofs. My neighbor called the mgmt co to remove the "big one" that is between our homes. It measured, before they took it down, approximately 10 ft long. There is one on the the back roof hanging from the roof past the third floor deck!
Maybe I'll use the icicles for some inspiration for this Challenge!
Keeping my snowflake book organized can be a bit challenging. All of a sudden I find a pattern, copy it and it's now laying in several places making me crazy. Then making sure I photograph them. I posted a Snowcatcher's Marble Snowflake on FaceBook and many seem to enjoy the picture. Hope they click through.
I read about using building insulation for blocking - it comes in many sizes and you can pick up some at the big box store. It is really dense and will help hold the pins when I begin blocking these flakes. Note to do after the "season".
Update... pictured above these are #9, #10, #11, #12 - total of 12 out of 50 done! With seven weeks of the year gone by already --- this is good start for my 50 Snowflakes Challenge.
