Yesterday we got hit right square in the face by one hellova blizzard (and I'm not talking about the kind that they sell at Dairy Queen). Here on Flannery Bay we received about 14 inches of snow (while it was more like 20" in MSP and 26"+ in Western Wisconsin). The snow was accompanied by 40+mph winds and real temperatures well below zero. This morning there was bright sunshine, but the temperature was still -7*.
Here's the view out my front door this morning. That grayish pile is my GMC pick-up.
I was scheduled to work at Gypsy Lea's this morning so I had to bust my way through the 5-6 feet high by 20 feet wide drift at the top of my steep and snow packed driveway.
This is what the driveway looked like after 15-20 minutes of me blasting at it with my 4 wheel drive truck.
This is one of the reasons that we can survive with this type of weather. The County road near my house was plowed clear by 9 AM.
At least we have the equipment needed to deal with the weather that we have to fight.
I’m a guy who has somehow fallen into the shabby world. A shabby chic world of shabotaged furniture and foo foo accessories. My stuff tends to be outside of the cottage without much chic, shabby or otherwise. My things are the hogs in this world of roses. Thus the title: Hogs and Roses. (Please look at my 1st post "Why Hogs and Roses?")
I want to be Henny Youngman, when I grow up. Take my wife -- please!
I enjoyed 7 years of marital bliss (17 years of marriage). I have been divorced forever. Love my role as curmudgeon, comedian, sage and advisor.
