I woke to a pretty powder coat look happening on all the trees just outside my home today.
Yes it meant we had to shovel but not the roof today. It snowed from the early morning hours and at 4:00 PM I was still moving snow to scatter seed for the ground feeding birds. I looked up into all of these large pines for that nasty hawk who snatched on of my pretty birds yesterday. All that was seen was a burst of feathers. Insert SAD FACE HERE.
JT hung out with me while I shoveled and he used the snow blower in the back yard.
After 2 hours we had the yard done for the first round, then we had to take a ride for more bird seed. The roads had been nuts around here for getting just a little amount of this light, powdery snow. I drove the three of us the 10 miles to the feed store and was pleasantly surprised to hear I had purchased the required 10 bags of bird seed so I got a 50 pound bag of Black Oil Sunflower Seed for FREE. The men loaded the truck up and we headed back down the road, for home. The roads were empty, the speeds had been lowered to 45 mph kind of crazy for so little snow. I have to tell you in case it did not hit your local news NH had a 40 mile bumper to bumper traffic jam. Can you imagine crawling along stuff in traffic hardly moving for FORTY MILES for 2 INCHES of snow. Today I was happy to play in the snow with him and JT and the pretty birds. I am grateful I was not in a BIG RIG, I am seeing how blessed I actually am .
How is your weather? Do you have crazy drivers where you live? I wonder who never made it to work today I know if I found myself in a 40 mile back-up I would take the next exit and go for breakfast then home to play in the snow.
It doesn’t hurt to know I have a place that looks so pretty to come home to, no matter how much snow has piled up.
My little shadow is always waiting to play no matter the weather.
