Morning. Dark. Wintry Mix. I hate the wintry mix because it often results in Ice. And I hate ICE. The day before yesterday we had over three inches of snow. Then yesterday that melted and the ducks had a grand day.
It was sloppy wet. As the temperatures zoom up and down.
I am glad I have exchanged my clown pants for ski pants.
My old clown pants have gone in with the Grumpy Old Pet Pigs. When I make their bed I mound up the straw and lay old jackets, clown suits, etc. on top of the straw. Wai and Tane always manage to work their bodies into the straw that has an old clothing blanket on the top so they end up Under the blankets and are covered up for the night. Tima just lies on top of everything- I think she is menopausal and always hot!
I am happy with my new togs. A friend sent me this old pair of her ski pants and they are light and warm and dry fast.
Those Carhart bib overalls ( clown suits) that they all wear around here are so heavy, dragging down on my shoulders and back and the wetter they get the heavier they get – getting heavier as the day progresses and staying wet all day. Plus they are expensive! A change is good.
It is so slushy here now and I am sure the slush froze over in the night – there is more snow in the forecast so we are going to get a lot messier.
I am not complaining though – just reporting. Anything is better than fire. Paradise and its surrounds is where the army should be. They should be building shelters for those desperate homeless people in burnt out towns going into the winter living out of their cars, instead of putting razor wire around border towns to keep other homeless people penned out – creating riots out of desperation.
I am sure those people in Paradise – at least whoever is left, would welcome tent towns – as long as they were not surrounded in razor wire and an army of guns.
I am horrified. And worn out by the horror. Even though I am safe and warm – still … I am not an immigrant delivered to these gates through desperation but I am an immigrant.
What can I do. What can we do. And here I am talking about which warm pants to get, surrounded in fat well fed pigs.
