We had some rather interesting wild weather on Friday with the winds. I walked to the ridge to see if the snowfall was drifting across the ridge roads.
I cancelled my CrossFit work out because. Well, because I could. I don't have to drive in poor weather anymore so I can relax and just watch the snow pile up and the winds create beautiful drifts.
Our road looked like this:
I talked to a friend of mine who had said they'd gone to town and the roads on the ridges were drifting and visibility was not good.
I figured that because I could barely see across the cropland on top of the ridge.
The winds were whipping the snow like crazy. Video length about 20 seconds of snow-nadoes!
I walked off the ridge and just into the woods.
It got quiet and peaceful without the roaring winds. Charlie and I walked down into the wild meadow where I picked up sticks, mosses, pieces of bark, and some grass. I felt that I'd probably be spending most of the rest of the day indoors and I felt like making something creative.
It sure looks like a mess, but I had ideas for a diorama of sorts.
I had some quiet time to myself so I got to work with my free materials from the woods.
Sorry, my cell phone takes awful photos in dim light. But I used and old cookie sheet to create a scene just for the camera.
I thought it would be funny to have a Lego Robot and a Squirrel working in a garden together.
Hey, IT could happen right???
And after all of their hard work, they decided to have a picnic.
An Acorn for the squirrel and a pizza for the robot. The Robot is the Nanny Droid, IG 11. He stars in Disney's Mandalorian episodes. I thought he was just weird enough to use in this scene.
The fork he is holding actually is an extra piece that was included in the Orchid build.
It looks like the pair is happy with their work of planting and watering.
After I cleaned that up I wondered what to do with all the extra material I had from the woods.
I had clay, a glue gun, sticks, and moss...
And I heard that Acorn Guy was looking for a little place to live. He didn't like Lego Brick homes, he preferred more wild-like things....
