After last week's freezing temps, it's 85 degrees right now.

I got some yard work done this morning. I enjoyed that. My yard always looks so dreadful this time of year.

Didn't think to get a picture. I was just too excited about seeing the Purple Crocus.
We are supposed to get snow all day Monday with wind 25-30 MPH. I am afraid a lot of this ice will still be on the ground. They are calling what we had a lightning, thunder, rain, ice, sleet storm. I don't remember ever seeing ice falling like rain. It didn't look like sleet and didn't look like hail. Just looked like fat raindrops that turned to ice before they hit.
I am glad your greens made it through the 33 degree temp.
I've never seen ice fall like rain. How odd. I've seen hail the size of golf balls, but never ice/rain.

Right now, the sun is shining on the trees and the ice is breaking. I have never heard a sound quite like this (and we have had ice on trees every winter). It sounds like the ice is breaking on every branch at the same time. It sure confused the dogs. They felt like they should bark, but weren't quite sure twhat to bark at.

Are you kidding me???? 85 degrees??? We could sure use a little of that warmth if you'd want to spare us some.

In honor of those stuck in butt high snow drifts!


December 9: We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more lovely place in the whole world? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had. Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did both our driveway and sidewalks.

This afternoon the snowplow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life.

December 12: The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment. My neighbor tells me not to worry, we'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much snow by the end of winter, that I'll never want it to snow again. I don't think that's possible. Bob is such a nice man. I'm glad he's our neighbor.

December 14: Snow, lovely snow! 8" last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplow came back this afternoon and buried everything. I didn't realize I would have to do this much shoveling., but I'll certainly get back in shape this way. I wish I wouldn't huff and puff so.

December 15: 20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4x4 Blazer. Bought snow tires for the wife's car and 2 extra shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants a wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that's silly. We aren't in Alaska, after all.

December 16: Ice storm this morning. Fell on my ass on the ice in the driveway putting down salt. Hurt like hell. The wife laughed for an hour, which I think was very cruel.

December 17: Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere. Electricity was off for 5 hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but stare at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I should have bought that wood stove, but won't admit it to her.

God I hate it when she's right. I can't believe I'm freezing to death in my own living room.

December 20: Electricity's back on, but had another 14" of the damn stuff last night. More shoveling. Took all day. Damn snowplow came by twice.

Tried to find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they're to busy playing hockey. I think they're lying. Called the only hardware store
around to see about buying a snow blower and they're out. Might have another shipment in March. I think they're lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it done and bill me. I think he's lying.

December 22: Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white shit fell today, and it's so cold it probably won't melt till August. Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to piss. By the time I got undressed, pissed and dressed again. I was too tired to shovel. Tried to hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter; but he says he's to busy. I think the asshole is lying.

December 23: Only 2" of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she...nuts??? Why didn't she tell me to did that a month ago? She says
she did but I think she's damn well lying.

December 24: 6" more today. Snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch the son of a bitch who drives that snowplow, I'll drag him through the snow by his balls. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at a 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I've just been! Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas carols with her and open presents, but I was busy watching for the damn snowplow.

December 25: Merry Christmas! 20 more inches of the !=3D@x#!x%jhf*^ slop tonight. Snowed in. The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. God I hate the snow! Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with my shovel.

December 26: Still snowed in. Why the hell did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She's really getting on my nerves.

December 28: Warmed up to above -50. Still snowed in. THE BITCH is driving me crazy!!!

December 29: 10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That's the silliest thing I ever heard. How dumb does he think I am?

December 30: Roof caved in. The snowplow driver is suing for a million dollars for the bump on his head. The wife went home to her mother. 9" predicted.

December 31: Set fire to what's left of the house. No more shoveling.

January 8: I feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving me. Why am I tied to this bed?

Hi girls!! Getting ready to go to a boucherie (they're killing and roasting a pig and making cracklings). All I have to bring is garlic bread and whatever we want to drink. Should be a very fun night at my sisters house, I haven't been to a pig roast in a while and they really know how to do it. My BIL built a Cajun microwave! Works beautifully. I hope y'all all have a good day.
