And It's Only Monday....

I got the day off today by default.

It was supposed to be an 'all hands on deck' day to do an annual cleaning of the main lodge.  But....

Intermittent snow and a weekend of blowing sheets of wind/snow have left the roads closed (again) with snowdrifts.  One truck is stuck in a drift, and at 3 large equipment snow vehicles are broken.  Temperatures have ranged from -12 to 18 degrees this morning.

So the most of the menfolk are out repairing vehicles and clearing what snow they can.  Dan is in the woodshop building a storage box for the horses.

It's a good day to be inside...... :)

A Midwinter's Night Dream...

Alas, all you who yearn for the kiss of Caribbean sun and sandy beach.  And you, who wail about the travails of cold and snow.... who think the flakes of frozen water are dismal and dull.  Those who think joy comes in hot glazed days or warm humid nights.....  the secrets of Winter are alive for the solitary souls that understand the beauty of the cold.    anonymous

Thank you, Paul for the beautiful photos...... :)
