A big shout out to my great neighbor Craig who spent nearly 3 hours clearing my driveway last night and connecting me to the rest of the world again. The snow was so dense and so frozen near the ground he was having a tough time of it, even with the big machine. Sufficed to say, I can't thank him enough.
So this morning to celebrate being able to get out, I went right over to my mother's house and dug her a path down to the mailbox and, more importantly to her mind, a way back to her bird feeders! LOL
Today the sun is bright and the sky a brilliant robin's egg blue. It's positively dazzling to look outside and with the flocked trees and deep snow it makes one feel like being right in a Currier and Ives painting. Temps are predicted to stay below freezing all week so the effect will last though next weekend.
Mom is settled, the birds are fed. All that is left for me to do is dig my way to my stash of firewood.
Or not! Oh well, maybe just some hot chocolate. Wonder if I've got any marshmallows?
Stay safe and warm, everyone!
