Snow Is A Four Letter Word
Snow is beautiful. It covers brown dry grass and makes any winter landscape starkly simple and more gorgeous than the exposed winter vegetation.
I love the look of it resting on branches and trees.
I love the view of our stream and bordered with snow.
I love to see the tracks the deer and rabbits make after a snow fall.
RJ loves, Loves, LOVES the snow! He loves running in it and leaping in it.
He WON'T get in the Mule for a ride and he will stay out as long as we do.
I hate the vehicles that start to slide in the snow for no good reason and end up in a ditch. I hate digging them out only to have them slide deeper into the snow.
We called a few people we know and asked if they knew anyone with a snow plow and CHAINS to come clear our drive.
So now we sit and wait. Cancel the dinner reservations and wait.
We did clear a parking spot (by hand) at the bottom of the hill for our daughter to use. When she gets here we will drive down in the Kawasaki Mule and bring her up.
Lee was able to make one pass with the tractor and the scraper to start to clear a path. Then, when he took it out after the second snow fall, it was just that much too deep and the tractor slid off the road and stuck.
So now we are using the technique my friend Rena espouses. "God put it there. I can wait for Him to take it away."
So we are waiting. Unless you have a snow plow and want to make some money????
