Now this snow man makes more sense than those normal looking ones! And it speaks volumes for how we all feel about all this snow.
You know what is really awkward? No guesses, bullshit, you had a million run thru your mind. Anyway, our problem or awkwardness comes in the form of what in hell do we do with all this snow?
We can toss it in the river (it has salt in it) and no farmer wants it on his field. So we stack it as high as we can and make damn sure nobody can see to back out of driveways or onto to streets, until they are in the middle of the damn road.
This was taken in my yard Feb 24th, the pile at the end, by the Library just keeps getting higher and higher.
Nice for sledding now if we could get outside to enjoy it but -34 wind chills and below zero temps keeps up inside.
Of course when this melts, I'll have a river in the back yard. And yes, the roof needs to scraped off before this stuff does more damage. We already decided we are replacing the roof this summer.
Here is Clint trying his level best to feed his brother. Keenan seems to be saying; "hey Dad, come save me!"
He loves his brother and this feeding is new to both as Keenan is a breast fed baby, so getting him to take the bottle is great fun.
So this is my winter so far and while I normal like winter, this year not so much. To damn cold and I mean COLD!
Can hardly wait for April when I head to Florida. Road trip sure sounds great right now. Have friends who have already headed south to escape the cold and ran into snow and ice storms in PA, NC and got to Florida only to learn it was a tad chilly there too. I figure by April everything should be much nicer.
The one state that cause so many close calls and near accidents is Pennsylvania, I don't understand why those people can't look before they switch lanes or assume everyone else should just let them hog the roads and drive anyway they wants. I was actually told by a guy who nearly crashed into me three years ago, caught up with him at a rest stop, that he reason he switched lanes was because he wants to drive in the fast lane all the time. The right hand lane is too damn slow and people don't go fast enough. Oh, they go the speed limit or a little over and you still must pass them? This jerks pulls out in from of anyone, trucks, police cars, ambulances, etc. Like I said, he nearly caused an accident and had us in a serious accident but he could have cared less, he was in such a hurry to get to a rest stop, he didn't care about anyone else. Shit your pants and let us all live, asshole!
Ok,enough of my rant. The drive is usually fun and relaxing. Normally its just my sister and I, we pick up the third sister in Florida. However this year, our sister-in-law is coming with us and she plan to visit her sister who lives in Florida. Whether she plans to stay with her sister or tag along with us is unknown but either way it will be fun.
So hope you are having a lovely February. More later. Hugs to all
