We have another snow storm on the way and as I sit here blogging it is just beginning to spit snowflakes and the wind is picking up. The forecasters can't seem to make up their minds about how much snow we'll get or if it will indeed turn to sleet, ice or perhaps mixing later on. The last we heard, it was to be 4 - 8 inches of snow with 1/2 inch or less of ice. We shall see. As H says, "We'll get what we get when we get it". In the interim, we are stoking the wood stove and hunkering down til it's time to go out and shovel.
The cats and I are looking out the office windows and there are two huge crows sitting on a branch just outside. Spike and Sluggo are transfixed! Their tails are slowly twitching, their bodies tensing, ready to strike, if only they had the opportunity. Alas, such are only the dreams of house kitties.
It's going to be a long winter with lots of snow, and I can't imagine just posting pictures of snow. Therefore, I think I'll post a summer/winter picture to remind myself that spring will arrive in due time.
Here's my fence planter last July.
And here it is just last week. That huge pile of snow is hiding it. I'm only 5 ft tall, so you can see how big the pile is. If we get the expected amount of snow today, it will be taller than me.
Maine is not for the faint of heart!
H is making pizza today, so the house will be redolent with the aromas of freshly baked pizza dough, herbs and spicy sauce. As for me, I may not even get out of my jammies today!
