Snow Blind

How do you like my new boots?  It's a necessity in our northwoods with all the cold and snow we have had this year.  It's been reported that it's our worse winter since 1973, not only for the lasting frigid air, but for the amount of snow.  My taller boots need new liners, and will get them someday, but for now, I needed WARM and WATERPROOF.  

Come one, come all, come get your snow blindness here!  
Really!, Can you see the neighbor's mailbox???
Me either, but if you click on the picture, you will ' maybe '
see where the driveway is.  Yes, those banks are high.  You can not see a pick-up truck coming out of this driveway, and you can only see the cab of the county grater that keeps this drive open just across the road from our place.
 This is our mailbox.  My main man keeps this one plowed back far enough so the mailman can get to the box.  That's fine and well so long as the mailman stops bringing me bills.
 This is the driveway to the farm, ya know, I just had to see if I could get all the way up this 1/8th mile long drive without getting stuck with my 4 wheel drive.  No Problem, this time.
 It's always a beautiful ride past the grove of balsam and spruce that line the farm road., but about half way there, like the photo above, it's open and it drifts, sometimes clean across.
 This drift is right up next to the door of the truck and to the bottom of the window.  It's a high step getting in this truck with it's 20 inch tires.  I think we have a little snow~
 Hmm, this isn't too bad.  The drifts are only about half way across but still passable.  I thought I'd go help Mom with a puzzle she's laid out to pass the time while she isn't venturing out.
 The fence rails are chair seat height.  We are still able to get to the gingerbread house even tho the snow is way above the rails.
I know, I know, you've had enough of going snow blind.
We are too, but at least for another couple of months, we all have to deal with our diverse weather together.
That is, unless you are fortunate enough to have green grass to look at already.  If you tire of your sunshine and gardening, sitting on your deck with a cold one, come back.  I'm always happy to assist in cooling you off even more.
Forecast for the remainder of the week is still icy, not even in the teens and up to minus -30's again each night.  We keep praying for that ' heat wave.'

Until next time...
God Be With Us All

First let me say those are snazzy boots. Yes I would say you've had a little snow. It looks like icing or frosting on a cake. We've had several warm days and now it is supposed to come again. I don't want the wind but we sure need rain.

I like the boots. The snow banks are so high! Not only that, but some of the roads are getting more narrow - no where to go with all that snow. I'm now taller than my bird feeder!

Ah sweet cake, methinks you need hip high waders not boots. But yep they do look good. Enjoyed the snow show. I think leaving mama's, when we were with you Bill stopped the truck to 'splain to us the balsam needles on those trees. They sure look different in the snow.
I know you guys MUST be ready for the THAW! WOW;
Love to all, hugs to mom and Bro Bill.

Lovin' the boots ~ but have to correct Jack ... it was Slim who was showing him the difference between balsam and spruce :)

cross country ski's would be helpful. Yowzer. I sure hope all the water will have some place to go when the snow begins to melt.

Love the boots ... is that real wool lining them?

You can keep the snow. We have enough of our own ... though still less than yourselves.
