I got home just before the rain started. Now the yard is like a skating rink.
June the snowbank is losing some of her tallness. Snow on top of the icy yard will make for some tricky footing. I have Yak Trax and I use them.
The snowstick registers 21 inches March 13.
Just before dark I went outside to take some photos of the snow on the roof…hopefully the rest of it will slide off in the rain. We will breathe a sigh of relief when the snow is gone from all our buildings….there have been some scary roof collapses in the area.
Rain is appropriate for our dismal mood.
My Tall Friend who I mentioned yesterday died early Wednesday morning. His daughters and ex wife are all very sad. You have to give kudos to the ex wife, she gave him emotional and physical support the past few months. They may not have been married but they were still friends.
We also learned of another death. Boner died…he was a fixture around town, always happy to see who ever he met. Recently the town council passed some kind of stupid law concerning the Golf Cart that he drove around town. He used to park it on Main Street and at the grocery store….get real people. His Mom Gladys used to own the small gift shop next to the theater, Boner took it over after she died….he ran it sucessfully for a number of years. Recently I noticed a street sign near his house it read “Elvis Presley Blvd” …now that made me smile.
Far Guy’s only living Uncle is struggling with heart problems….he is home and maybe his wish that he shared with me will be fulfilled. He said “I would like to die at the farm, they can carry me out feet first.”
Life is a journey full of a little rain, a little snow, illness, death, sad feelings…but eventually spring will come…the sun will shine and flowers will grow.
