The snow finally stopped yesterday afternoon. As you can see, it has started to slide off the roof. Camper Kevin keeps adding to the wood pile to keep HeWho warm.
See my car over there. I am planning to layer on some clothes and go out to unbury it later on for a trip to the grocery. The situation here in my pantry is not good. Coffee. I am out of coffee. And HeWho is out of hearing aid batteries. He is making a huge dent in the diet coke in the store stock. Might as well get some bread and milk while I am there.
I used the broom handle to perforate the snow overhang, because ……. because I wanted to and it looks cool. I will continue until it falls. Another camper's car stuck in place and the unmoving truck of HeWho drives a lot. It is in gear and he can't get it out of gear to start it. So, there it sits, bereft of it's faithful master.
It is beautiful, this white fluffy stuff. I love to look at it. Now I wish we had not sold the snow mobiles. We were told that it never accumulated enough to ride. The first few years found that to be correct, but the weather pattern is definitely changing here.
I still have all my gear. My snowsuit has a drop bottom for those times you have to use the woods as a bathroom. I could deliver mail and check on campers if I still had my machine! In a pinch I could ride the ditches to town and get groceries. Oh, who am I kidding. HeWho loves to go would be doing that. I would be here holding down the fort, sipping hot tea while waiting for my coffee.
