So, that’s what they say … this level of a blizzard happens once every 50 years … so … at my age (49) it’s the worst I’ve seen and even better than that … in all likelihood, I’ll never experience another (this big anyway) IF what THEY say is right anyway.
Our little acreage has been beseiged by snow all day today. Even though I don’t like winter much, this has been a very beautiful day. Beyond the fence and tree lines, there is no horizon today…it’s a total white-out. If you can imagine, it’s much like being in my own snowglobe! The high winds have blown the path to my craft cottage shut – again! Poor Bruce, he’s blown that path out SO many times in the past 6 weeks…and now I’m needing his help…again! Luckily he has a handy-dandy snowblower – SO much better than a shovel on days like this! Of course, it would help IF he’d been snowed in ‘at home’ … alas…he’s in Sioux City…stuck!
There is ONE very big PLUS to a once-in-every-50-years blizzard … you get to stay in the house and play the day away totally guilt free! (at least in MY rule book anyway!) So today, I’ve been playing on the computer … trying out all kinds of fun new skills in Photoshop that I’ve been wanting to play with for a few months but things just don’t seem to slow down enough … there’s always something going on that prevents me from having long periods of time to really dive deep into something like this. It has been a Wonderful Day!
