Our backyard…if our shepherd was still around she would love it!
We have had a couple good winter snows here in the last 7 winters. A few have resulted us and our neighbors to the north, stuck between a nasty S-curve to the south and the hill just north of the neighbors.
Usually when this happens we are stuck for 2 days. That is until the road grader comes out and makes a path. Thankfully we have only lost power twice in winter.
All these polar vortex’s & arctic blasts have reminded of our first winter here and how the furnace would kick on every 5-10 minutes and it was still cold. Our “best” memory would be from one particularly cold morning, just after a good storm. We were on the main floor at the time in a northwest bump out. That room is always cold in the winter, but this specific morning my hubby got a shocking surprise when he stepped out of bed…Snow! Yep snow, in the house. We are still not sure how it got in, thinking it got thru the very poor siding/foundation.
When we sit and reminisce about our winters, the stepping out of bed into snow tops them all.
