And now it is blowing – hard. I can hear it but cannot see it yet. The wind is what will make today unpleasant.
It snowed in the night. In fact the temperatures are rising so the snow will become rain soon, before we begin the inexorable drift down to -23f (-30C). But for today it will rise up above freezing for a few hours so I hope to get the hoses out and fill the big water troughs.
I do hope it does not rain – this ridiculous rain in the middle of a terrible winter week just means more ice. I have enough ice. And I have to drive this water to the other side twice a day.
Still, it was a lovely sunny weekend.
I have three more days before Our John returns from the West Coast.
As long as I don’t get a power cut I will just plod on. I have to admit to being a wee bit anxious about ice on the power lines. Ice can bring my whole pack of cards tumbling down.
But until then it is warmer so I am going to rug up and go see if the outside faucet is running. If it is I will get the hoses out.
Lots of love
