I'm trying to get into the winter mindset. It seems like we are there for sure now...... -25° on Tuesday, -20° on Wednesday, but only -15° this morning. It got into the 20's today and it felt pretty balmy outside!
We finalized the house deal two weeks ago today. Peggy has been busy moving things to the chalet, and we just got electricity in there a couple of days ago.
Here is a view of a snowy yard before the boiler came to live at the Ottertail. How soon one forgets what things looked like before a big change.... I have been digging wood out of the pile, it looks like it has been mortared into place. That ridiculous wind last weekend blew snow several feet into the pile, not from the ends of the pieces of wood, but from the side. I can't believe how far into the pile the snow was driven. No airspace in that pile, just wood and snow.....
This tree provides great photos any season of the year.
One of those mornings when the hoarfrost clings to everything and the world is one big glistening panorama.
The turkeys don't seem to mind the weather. They must have feet with no nerve receptors in them!
This one is my favorite. Every twig and blade of grass had countless ice crystals covering all surfaces.
I need to get a better start at sorting, tossing, packing and moving. Peggy has set the pace and I seem to be lagging behind. I will have a couple of weeks off work this month, maybe I will turn into the mighty master mover. We'll see. We are still talking about how to use the space in the house, what will go where, etc. I'm glad we don't have to get this done by next weekend!
Only about a week until Christmas, everyone all set for it????
