icicle in the kitchen window
the wind is howling and crashing over our rather tiny island
the wind chill temperatures are down to -14
the kitchen smells like fresh coffee
and the sunrise warms the old wooden floor beneath my feet
i can't help but pause to admire the beauty of
a smallish icicle hanging from the eaves
We are absolutely covered in snow here near Boston.
traffic moves at a crawl because the roads are so snow filled
that they are reduced to one lane
and you can just forget about parking
if you'd like to see a few more pictures of our snowy landscape
there are more in the posts above this one
the other day I watched as the tractors scooped up snow and dumped it into trucks
which then drove it over to the parking lot and dumped it
then turned around to pick up another load
it looked like a little Tonka truck village
When the temperatures get down below zero, as they have been, I tend to turn the
oven on for long slow cooked meats or baking
so, our house is well warmed and we are well fed.
Today has dawned sunny...if not quite warm
and we are well shoveled out
it is almost the end of February
and though i hesitate to jinx things....
Spring is just around the corner
so all is well...
