Old Man Winter woke up…

What a night! The winter storm blew the power out all night, the drifts got bigger and bigger, and the world was coated again in fresh white. It was wonderful and I kept the stove going all night and Sveta slept as snug as a bug in a rug…

This morning we found this all around…

The moon was wonderful, the sun came up and was so warm and then along comes Old Man Winter and he is trying to snow on our parade again…

Getting ready to start splitting…

I got the internet going again, after last night. The wind was the worse I have ever seen here and I have been through tornadoes here. It looks like a piece of limb or wood, was thrown through the air and sliced the antennae cable in half. Cut as clean as if a knife did it. I found a board nearby, stuck in the snow and I think that is the culprit…

So with a bit of finagling and such, I got internet going strong again and all is happy…

Time to go move a ton of wood again…
