of the hot summer day
when hanging out in the pool
will feel much better than shoveling snow.
We finally had a break in our cold spell,
experiencing temps. above zero, 20 degrees instead
of the bitterness and bite of minus-50 windchill.
It felt so good, I shoveled the steps off in my short
sleeves this morning.
We did get another 4-5 inches of snow during
the night so my man was out plowing once more.
The piles are getting higher and higher, one has
completely covered a Bluebird house that rises a couple feet above the top of the fence. It's getting deep as we hang on.
The ground was saturated when the first snows fell
in Oct. so I can only imagine how the creek will rapidly flow come spring. For us, that will be about the end of May or early June. I recall snow and ice on Murray Creek one spring that did not melt until mid-June. This may well be another one of those springs to wager our bets.
Enjoy what sunshine you see.
I will continue to dream.
Until next time,
have a fun weekend.
