First it snowed and that was okay… nice big snowflakes.
BUT then the wind came up, it just howled through the yard. Chance had to be coaxed to go out.
It was awful. The wind blew for two days…40 to 60 MPH gusts. My happy little sunflower yard decoration flew off and is probably in the lake by now. The squirrel guard blew off the feeders, a small piss popple came down in the driveway. I was sure we were going to lose power but we didn’t.
All of the dirt on the fields in North Dakota and Western Minnesota ended up mixed in with the snow = Snirt. Everything is just filthy outside. I am hoping for a rain to help clean things up. It blew so hard that the window screens caught the snirt. The dirt hangs there like cobwebs.
It is not exactly a winter wonderland.
There is still ice and two inches of snow at the snowstick. We are headed back below zero again.
I am working on Mikey’s blanket. (Our great grandson who will be born in May…his middle name will be Michael…so I am going to call him Mikey…just like in the Hey Mikey Life Cereal Commercials.)
Taxes!! Information was compiled and the paperwork is at the accountants. I am always happy to have my part completed.
A special woodcarving project is in the works…it is going slower than I anticipated.
