Well, would you look at us!  We made it through another blizzard.  Snow is knee-deep at it’s shallowest, and shoulder-deep when you least expect it.  And it is everywhere, covering everything from out West to back East.  It is  bone-biting cold, yet  beautiful at the same time.  But the hardest part for me after the unending howling and blowing of the storm  is the Quiet.  It is one of the loudest ‘quiets’ you will ever hear.  And in the midst of all this whiteness nothing seems to move.  There is no traffic, or people, or noises of any kind.  Just cold, and silence.

Lonely, and So Cold

Then, after a few days inside to recover and hide from the chill, all of a sudden a little sunshine…and a much appreciated visit from our ‘friends’ who have weathered this storm with us.  They were hiding all this time!  And, they are back  just when we need them!

Red on White....Perfect

Movement, and happiness….just what was called for!  We can do this!  Together, we Can Do This!

I am Here for you

Was there ever any doubt?

(Thank you, my Dear Cousin Mary, for the pictures….they have captured the essence of our ordeal, and of our survival.)
