Plowing Out


It snowed and snowed yesterday. This morning, all is calm and it's time to plow out.
I've been keeping track of the weather for the past three years and this is the first time we've had such a nice snowfall this early in December for a while. It seems comforting, somehow.
The boys are out playing in the drifts, and maybe they will go skiing later. Meggie ran outside first thing this morning and barked her head off at the new white world. She always lets us know when anything is slightly amiss in the yard. In her mind, she thinks things are supposed to stay just as she left them. Heaven forbid anything change overnight while she's not there to keep track of it.
Winter has arrived in earnest. All the chores seem a little bit harder slogging through a foot of snow. But it is beautiful, none the less.

it IS beautiful outside! It'd be even more pretty if I didn't have to plow it all away! My back is feeling it, and i'm exhausted, but hey its money in the bank :)

I've missed you!

Love this photo, Sabrina. I've been yearning for snow, myself. Not that I want to have to scrape ice off my car or pour hot water on the keyhole in order to get the door of it open or have to worry about sliding into a sign post as I drive along (ah, memories!); but it just doesn't seem like Christmas is really coming without snow.
