Do any of you remember the photos I posted of my new deck this past summer after it was completed. It was a wonderful place to sit at the end of the day and relax and unwind and watch the birds and wildlife and view my blooming flowers. Well, this is what it looks like this evening!



Considerably different and not very inviting looking is it? I think I'll pass on sitting out there to watch any wildlife for quite some time. The worst part is that many of our roads still look like this even though they have plowed. When you live in a rural area and the wind gusts to 35 or 40 mph it appears that the plows haven't been out at all. This is one of the reasons I don't like winter and I don't drive in this kind of weather unless there is a dire emergency of some sort. My entire family knows I refuse to drive in it. Some of them laugh at me. I don't care. Most of them have not rolled a new vehicle over on these kind of roads and hung upside down while a bunch of people stared into your vehicle talking about the best way to remove you from said vehicle. Hub tells me this was not the best way to rotate the tires! Funny, funny man. Of course this happened back in 1990 and maybe I should be over it by now............but I.Am.Not! End of explanation, beginning of hibernation! See you in the spring!

Do you ever make snow cream? I've not ever had snow cream but people around here talk about it like it's gold. Of course, I guess no more than we get of snow it is sort of like striking gold. LOL

Hope things thaw out soon.
