Ice, water and snow

With the warm days we have done a whole lot of melting. That is an ice field in the lower driveway. Snow melts form above and the snow banks flows down then becomes more ice.
Also supposed to be another warm week to come. But we normally get a warm up at this time of the year. Makes for tons of ice when it freezes at night.

Not much goes on here at this time of year that's for sure.

I am feeling better finally! That inner ear problem was more than a month and a half. I still can't hear real well out of my right ear because of it. Then I caught an awful cold/flu that I still have but is on it's way out.

Lots of the family has had that flu that is roaring through the Lewis/Clark Valley. Never fun.

Well like I said there hasn't been much going on with being ill. So this is short and sweet :).

High Winds 35 MPH and the Snow

The high winds filled the walkways back over this past weekend. So they are being shoveled out again.

Front walkway, have fun getting to the front deck. :)




 Bear eating snow again, he loves it.

 This is the back walkway before shoveling.
Our gate at the front of the driveway. There is a wee bit of snow here.
The woodshed is up there on the right Dave had just shoveled the front out last Friday. On the left is the lean-to no longer in use as after the winds stop it always looks like this, this year.
A good to be up here and anywhere, be prepared :).

A Plowing He Will Go

The name of the game is plowing.
 Front of the garage.
 Garage lean-to. No getting in here and dh got tired of digging out the small truck.
 Our front ramp walkway.
Now on top of everything the Farm truck has blow a power steering hose or something. You know the one we use most of the winter to get in and out of here. We hope it is something that easy.

I am still fighting my right ear problem and hoping it heals up soon as I am tired of the dizziness.

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.
