The Sun is Shining

All around town, snowmen and snowwomen are melting into bent and grotesque forms, all except this one that is. It was huge the day I saw the family making it, but I didn't have my camera with me. It was well over twelve feet tall and looks like it is still at least eight feet tall. The snowman next to it looks like it has kowtowed to the sun and sacrificed it's head. See why I don't kowtow?



On Saturday, Hubby picked up the neighbor whose garage was blocked by the fallen tree and took him to Home Depot where they both bought chain saws. Hubby had a chain saw, but wanted one with more power. Argh, argh, and all that. The neighbor's driveway is now usable and Hubby got most of the limbs off one tree in our backyard to keep it from falling all way, taking with it the cable tv line and landing on our fence.



He tried to use his trusty cart to tighten a come-a-long but couldn't get any traction even with it's nubby tires. Poor little wimpy electric cart.



And finally just had to leave it as it was with the tip hanging over the cable tv line. The good news is that it's the neighbor's tv cable, not ours.

Until next time, may you have blessings and more power,
Marti

I am so thankful that stuff stopped and didn't come into Swampland! The weather gurus have mentioned the possibility of snow twice in the last couple of weeks. Hopefully they thought they were being funny!

Glad you are thawing!

Hi Marti,
Looks like spring is on the way, lets hope anyway. I bet you guys are sick of snow. Every time I talk to my daughter she mentions how crappy the weather is in good ole Pa.

About the kale....I don't know if there are different varities or not but I bet the curly would be just as good.
