The images in the today’s slide show were captured on my way back to the hotel, and no, I did not set the camera to monochrome – it really was an achromatic day all around!
We thought last Thursday in Hampton, VA was a poor weather day… the snow had covered trees and parking lots. This week in Somerset, NJ the snow fell even more. The weather network informed that at times snow fall was as heavy as 1/2″ per hour.
My workshop was toasty warm and we had the most amazing view of the iced over pond surrounded by Pampas Grass and bushes. Christmas carols were swirling through my head as I walked from the hotel to the conference center…
Classes finished at 4 pm and the organizers decided that the show floor would also close at that time. All evening programmes were cancelled. This had to be a first! Sunshine is in the forecast for tomorrow – this should lift everyone’s spirits and bring out those suffering from cabin fever!
I look forward to reconvening in the classroom and hopefully catching up the two students who had to miss today’s class…
My day went well until the bag I used for classroom supplies this morning slipped out of my hand and the only item left in the bag, my iPad, crashed to the ground. I was not too concerned as I figured the snow would soften the fall. When I pulled it out of my bag in the hotel room a shattered screen was revealed. Tomorrow will be another day… but I would not be honest if I didn’t admit that this dampened my spirits!
