What a difference a day makes, brilliant sunshine today, light breeze and a brisk -12C, a little milder than what Gord sees out west at the Lakehead. That same picture this morning is quite lovely with the sun sparkling on the snow covered trees. The classic "after the storm scene" with the winter birds out at the feeder and the tracks of a deer not 30 feet from the front of the house, a survivor of the just finished deer season. Long shadows even at this hour of the day says we are getting closer to the bottom. Despite its beauty, I'd rather be looking at the picture with palm trees, pink sand and blue water
. Coupla more years to make that happen.
Our lane is almost 1/4 of a mile long, so I let the Kubota do the shovelling. With a 6' wide blower, it doesn't complain about the snowplow windrows. If you live in the boonies you better be self-sufficient. Kinda like being on a boat?
