GO. AWAY. Please, just Go Away.
No longer your fan,
Well, that probably won't help but it makes me feel slightly better. (Only slightly) As my blogging friend Pam said on her "disgusted with winter" post today, "Winter, We are SO done with you."
We weathered yesterday's storm, and now have yet another foot or so of fresh snow on top of the winter's accumulation. The snowbanks are so high, you can't see some buildings or houses from the street. It's ridiculous. The sun is shining today, but tomorrow, we're to get a little more snow then rain. And there's rumor of yet another possible storm on Monday/Tuesday. I don't even want to talk about this anymore. But for the sake of some of my regular followers in the warmer climes of Florida (Hi Sandi, Mary, Diane, Jeanna and Lucy), California (Hi Jan), Australia and New Zealand, I thought they might like to see some photos. Hope these cool you down!! haha
Here's what things looked like yesterday afternoon in the midst of the storm (nonstop snow for almost 24 hours)
The view from the front of our house is straight down #3 fairway of the golf course. Hmm... I don't think there'll be any golfers there for a few days yet, what do you think?
The little house across the street. They have a hot tub on their deck.. don't think they'll be in it for a while yet either...
My poor Rhododendron is tired of winter too. We stake and wrap it for the winter for a little protection and windbreak, but there is so much snow burying the lower branches now, I'm afraid it's not going to be in very good shape when we unwrap it.
At least today, we are plowed out and the sky is blue rather than grey- you can see how high the snow is piled.
You can see my studio on the right end of the house. That's where I'm spending
Ollie is keeping me company- he likes to snooze on the ironing board while I'm sewing. He's up high enough to see what I'm doing (he thinks he's supervising...) and he loves the warmth after I've used the iron.
Since Spring is only one week away now, I'm celebrating tomorrow by heading to the beach. Wanna come along?
My favourite thing about winter? When it's over.
