Got the Car Chiseled Out

 Yes really, wte went down and Dave chiseled the ice under the car as the char was frozen to the parking lot. Then we shoveled and brought it home. At least for a few days until the next big snow storm is supposed to hit this coming Tuesday.
We have a warm up coming in this coming week as well. We are not looking forward to it as this will mean more ice as night settles in and everything freezes again. Supposed to have 3 or 4 days of it.

Here is the Lewis/Clark Valley with the clouds above it in the distance. Just covers the whole river valley and up to about 2,900 feet with fog. You can't even tell the valley is there.
Not much else going on around here. We are here staying warm. We did the bills this morning, yuck. But as we all know they have to be paid.

Our son Seth is headed to Haiti to help out as he is a nurse and they have to pay their own way. If anyone has a spare $5.00 or more it would really help him.

High Winds Again

We are having high winds again today with drifting snow. Never good going into the weekend lol as the county doesn't plow on weekends or holidays. They should today thank goodness so that should help some.

These were this past Sunday pictures. Someone with a truck plow went through the drifts so we had at least one lane open.

 



Dear hubby says he is starting to run out of places to put the snow.

I am still having that ear problem and dizziness so I haven't been driving anywhere myself.

I have been writing a bit on a new book on the days I feel a bit better. An idea popped in for another one so I started writing it down so I wouldn't forget about it. :)

Sorry I haven't put up any recipes in a while between the holidays and not feeling well it has all had me on slow motion.

Idea:
Oh, a present from a friend was an emergency blanket and some matches taped onto a small nice smelling candle with it's own holder jar. Nice gift, one for me and one for hubby.

Things like this can come in handy at the oddest times. I think they will be a good idea to stick in the car kit. Don't forget to look over your car or truck emergency kits for winter.

Blizzard Time

We're in the middle of another blizzard today, winds 45 MPH.

I also have a middle ear infection and can't get to the Doc. until Thursday morning, the winds are supposed to end tomorrow and the plow should be through by then.

I wish and pray for everyone to have a good New Year to come.

First Snow of the Winter.

We had our first snow this week.
We had most of our getting ready for winter things done but not all.
Hubby and the neighbor are going out again tomorrow for the last couple of cords as tomorrow is the last day that is allowed.

Thanksgiving was good, most of the family went to a son's home in Lewiston. We really missed those who weren't there.

Cold coming in this week again

We have had around two weeks of pretty good weather to get some more work done around here. More fence work of course.
Cutting away brush and small trees in the way of the new back fence line. Taking out the old rotten posts and rock jacks.

 New T posts put in.

Bear jumped up on the tractor to say hello.

By Thursday and a few days of rain the high will be 38 degrees F. So cold rains.

Fence, fence and more fence.

Dave has been taking down our old barbed wire fence on our road side and back property. This is the crushed field fencing we will also replace and put elsewhere.

He has already taken off a lot of the back field upper barbed wire and we still have about 950 feet to go.

We have had some wild weather here. Buckets and buckets of rain and winds at 32 MPH. Still pretty windy today in the 30 MPH range again and one moment to the next the weather is different.

Here are a few of the pictures I took today.



I have 3 books up as kindle.
