Do you remember this? It's last spring's garden. Take note of the 8 ft. poles. Now you see them and ..............
Now, you barely see their tops. Yeppers, folks, that's how much snow is in our yard. It's pushed as high as the tractor plow can push it. There are about 5 rows of it surrounding our place.
It'll be quite some time before we can plant anything, but it doesn't deter us from enjoying the outdoors. There's a heat wave going on, don't cha' know. This is the first break we've had from the miserable arctic winds and temperatures, so the air felt wonderful today at 30-something.
While the Grandloves and their dad played, I snapped a few memories. There were holes to dig, and
rides to take, (how I wish I were small enough to ride the pull-behind sled)., and
a-waaay they go!
Did you know you can dig to China to watch the Olympics, it's true~so they say.
Did you also know you can make a volcano
out of snow? Really!!!
Now where'd he go? Click the photo and you may just see him...
This is also the time of year that my workaholic loves to go to the woods and cut and pull out trees for firewood. He's been working the past couple winters getting trees out of the swamps and lowlands, all of which blew down from a huge wind storm that dropped over a hundred mature live trees. Rather than let them rot, they are harvested for firewood. Like he says, "I'm keeping your butt warm," and he is. Gotta love him.
Even the Bluejays are surviving our 'more harsh than usual' weather. They actually seem to thrive in it year round.
Of course, the free hand-outs they get all winter makes them fat and sassier.
Yes, it's true. It's snowing again....
So it goes in our northwoods which we love.
Go play in the snow if you have some.
The Lord's promised spring so I'll remain impatiently patient. (is that possible?)
