Thor buried Tess in the snow again...

Today I saw three moose running along the fence line. It looked like a fully grown male and female and a calf. The calves are getting close to fully grown now. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me...I really need to start carrying it again. I see ravens all the time, but never when I have my camera.

We are having a heat wave. It's been in the mid 30's today and yesterday, so there is slush on the roads, and snow sliding off the roofs. The snow banks along the edges of busy roads have gotten black and dirty, and when we drive now, we get that caked up on the bottom of the vehicles and drag it into the garage. Yuck.

I slid through a stop sign for the first time this winter, and have been seeing the occasional car in the snowbank. Lucky for me I grew up in the snow, learned to drive in the snow, and so it's not a big deal...except when I am following someone who is going 10 or 15 miles below the speed limit because they don't know how to drive in this stuff.

I am still very much happy to be here instead of the desert.


  1. Love the picture of Tess. She seems to be thriving in the cold.

    Be careful driving. The hard part isn't going, it's stopping.

    Stay warm.

  2. Be careful with those stop signs! I almost ran one last week myself!


You like me! You really really like me!

Or maybe you just find me horribly annoying and are about to let me know. Go ahead, I can deal.

So, whatever, you know, leave a message. Thanks!!!
