It started with rain and then turned to snow. The roads were junk. The finger drifts were starting to build across the road when Pine and I headed home from town two nights ago. I was in front in the car with Pine following behind. We were trying to get the extra car home that had been in town for a couple of weeks. The first 15 miles passed by at a whopping rate of 40 miles per hour, but we were safe and sound. Then my car started sliding sideways, spinning the other way, back and forth, and finally… there I was STUCK in the dang ditch. The best part of my misfortune was that my sweet husband did not say one thing. He just stopped, got out the chain, and tried to get the car jerked out. Unfortunately we only had a 6-foot chain with us so we left the retrieval from the ditch for the next morning’s after chores project.
I keep talking about all the ice. Here are a couple of pictures showing what I’m talking about. This is what the pastures look like.
Two days ago was a beautiful morning. I had my camera along, fortunately, as Huck kicked up a coyote so got to get a picture of him, the does were out grazing, and “Earl the Eagle” was flying about. Pine’s grandma started the stories about Earl when Pine was a little boy. They continue today. Miss Wild Child asks for stories about their adventures often so she and I are in the process of writing a children’s book about their adventures. It is so much fun.
GOD sure fills our world with beauty. Have had some requests for pictures of the snow and have been lucky enough to have to turn them down over the past couple of weeks as we haven’t had any snow. Now that has changed I will try to take my camera along tomorrow and get some new pictures of the white countryside.
Until next time… JARW
