I'm sure you are tired of seeing this but it's actually good news today. We were warned of another dangerous snowstorm which started early last night for our north central WI area.
According to the weather reports, we were in the area expected to receive between 14-18 inches....again~
the wind was blowing the snow directly from the northwest.
We filled our reserve jugs of water in case of power outage and Bill widened the road to the cabin in case we need to go for the generator or, temporarily ' move.'
As it turned out, we got lucky.
Yes, we still ended up with a considerable amount of snow for Bill to plow.....again.....but we were spared the terribly depth of it.
It's looking gorgeous out, all white and clean again.
We can still get in and out of the yard without ditching.
The new foot of snow on the roof was nearly gone in yesterday's heat wave, and it will melt again.....maybe next week.
The birds have found their free meals again.
With their resourcefulness, they can easily find the seeds under the blankets of snow that has blown in and piled high.
The birds plump up and use their thick winter coats of fluff to keep themselves warm and still manage to ' sit pretty.'
I have been doing a lot of hibernating this extra harsh winter,
but still would never choose to live anywhere else. North central WI really is a wonderland of the four seasons. The only thing I would change, would to shorten winter and lengthen the rest of the seasons....that would work for me.
Meanwhile, we play a lot of cards, take walks when it's above zero, bake too much, read, spring clean (it helps, really), and do what the bears do,........sleep in! (gotta get it while we can because come spring, it will be very busy around here.)
How do you deal with the winter dull-drums???
Now, I wonder if that snow is packy enough to make a
snowman? It would be a first this winter due to all the cold.
