What is the curse? "May you always live in interesting times." These times have been quite interesting enough thank you. This is the third time in the last six month we have had the electricity go out!
The snow started at 7:00AM friday just as they said it would. It was coming down steadily but not heavily until early afternoon. The power went off just after I had posted a reply on Hollis's blog. We were prepared and set up the power etc. The hardest part was that we could not get out the driveway. It's the first time I have not been able to get my 4RUNNER through snow. Of course it's also the first time we've had this much snow since I began driving it. We broke down and had the driveway plowed, money well spent. He lives just down the hill from us so it is certainly convenient.
The power came back on around one this afternoon. There's nothing like being without power for several days to appreciate electricity and running water! Fortunately we heat with wood so we were warm and cozy!
The photo of the trees was taken on Sunday when the sun came out. It's hard to tell from the picture, but we ended up with 18 to 24 inches. It's pretty to look at but a b*tch to get around in. I use a cane for balance; three legs are steadier than two!
The wood pecker and jay along with many small birds were coming for seed throughout the days. Now I'm glad I had to get a mix rather that straight sunflower as the larger birds pick out the corn and peanuts. Happy birdies!
My little garden shed is snowed in. Guess I'll have to wait until everything melts to get into it.
Winter is completely nonplussed by so much snow. In the photo she is light enough so she is only in about half the depth of the snow. After we beat a path for her all that was visible was her tail poking up like a flag.
Everything is well with us. Right now it's raining; it's supposed to be up in the 40's tomorrow. I doubt that it will all melt away before it gets cold again. Hey! This is New England....live with it!
I hope everyone who was in the storm has survived it well. Those of you in sunnier climes, those are little green tendrils of envy you see growing around me.
Enjoy the evening and as always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*
