Princess went to the groomer yesterday and got a bath and trimmed. Now she is very pretty and smells so good! She loves going to Scrub-a-Mutt in Palmer.
I just got all the walkways and patio cleared and it snowed again last night. I think I will just wait till it warms up and melts, that could happen any day now.
It seems like I have had to shovel the front walk almost every day lately. We seem to get a few inches of snow overnight regularly. This fresh snow will hasten the thaw, it is much warmer than the ground. Some days the fresh snow will be totally melted by midday.
I noticed a slight tint of green beginning to show on the iris plants this morning. A sure sign that Spring is on the way!
Earlier this week I went to use my phone and I couldn’t dial out, I called the telephone company and they dialed my number but I didn’t ring. So a technician came out to troubleshoot. They discovered that my phone line was mixed with my dedicated fax line, and fixed that issue. They also discovered […]
I didn’t get a photo, the Mallard pair were only here for a few minutes, but this is the earlies I’ve seen them in the yard. The wind continues to howl, melting mountains of snow. There are some patches of grass showing on the lawn by the lake. I sprinkled cracked corn on the lawn, […]
The wind has drifted the snow up against the house making access to the BBQ difficult. I guess tomorrow I will get the shovel and dig it out. I thought we had lost the BBQ cover, but now I see a corner of it buried in a drift.
A black lab puppy bit miss Princess just above the left eye yesterday. She needed stitches, the vet said she was so lucky that it didn’t injure the eyeball.
It is hard to see in this photo but the wind is blowing snow across the lake. It is 13 degrees with strong wind. Time to stay indoors.
Yesterday my chair looked like this. Today the wind is blowing hard, I’m sure the chair will be clear of snow when the wind quits.
The snow piles are over six feet tall and growing. My sweet neighbor is building these piles for me and keeping the driveway clear. Thank you Dennis!
It just keeps snowing, a little bit here, a little bit there, a little bit everywhere, and accumulating. Time to shovel the walk again.
All I’m able to do to keep up with this snow is shovel the front walk and sprinkle kitty litter on it to break-up the ice. Thank goodness I have wonderful neighbors with plows, someone always comes down and keeps the driveway open. We baked chocolate chip cookies for those guys yesterday.
Hurricanes in California, meanwhile in Alaska the Lions Club is sponsoring a golf tournament on our lake. Beautiful sunny day.
Several days of strong winds have taken all the lights out on the big tree and on the dock. It could be a breaker, but the main box on the side of the house in the dog kennel. Unfortunately the dog kennel door is frozen shut and blocked by ice inside the kennel. Do I […]
