On A Cold Winter's Day

Oh how poetic that sounds.
Yea Right!
Let's take a looksy outside, shall we.
That be the moon on my way to work.

We have barely made it up to double digits for over a week.
Yesterday, Mr. LB borrowed a neighbor's little tractor so we could
do some snow management.
Our poor snow-blower kicked the bucket a couple weeks ago.
We are running out of places to pile the stuff.
If we get a warm spell, there will be severe flooding down river.

In the last post, I showed you this photo.
This is looking out our kitchen window.

Within the week, this is that same view.

And from the driveway.
Sorry for the headlight interference.  It was snowing and I was leaving for work.
It's like a bad redneck joke:
Instead of mowing the lawn and finding a car,
it's shoveling snow and finding a car,
which is exactly what we did.

The snow has pushed the elk down.
They are nearly to town!
This is quite a bit lower than where we are.

So I just wanted to let you know, I'm still here.
Making it to and from work takes extra time.
Everything is taking extra time.
We just keep shoveling.
I will definitely be welcoming spring.

Until next time,
find yourself a cup of something warm,
and stay in out of the snow.



  1. you certainly have more than your fair show of snow, what hard work it must be to get out and go to work well done for achieving it. Do hope it does not thaw too quickly as it will cause such floods.

  2. We've been lucky here so far in the mid-Ohio Valley. I just hope it holds.

  3. That is a familiar site here. Hang in there. I haven't seen any elk, but the antelope are showing up in unusual places on the prairie. Hope you get a new snowblower soon.

  4. We have had a stranger winter...40's in January, suppose to git 50's over the weekend.
    Not much white stuff...
    Love the shot of the elk! That must be a sight to see.

  5. I love the snow! Thank you so much for sharing with us on the Homesteader Hop!

  6. I enjoyed seeing your snow pictures. We have missed it here in Southern Missouri this year.
    Be blessed,
