Thanks, J2

It's funny.
A month ago, if I looked at the forecast and it showed 10F as a low, I'd be in a bit of a dither, stocking up wood in the cabin, checking the propane pump hut, making sure we had plenty of water, starting the Wrangler, checking tarps...

But after going thru this last cold snap, reaching a low of -25F,


and the stark possibility of freezing things that, well, shouldn't be frozen (thas' right, afraid to shake it), well, ya get sorta inured to it all and begin to enjoy the wimpy lows of 10F, basking in the sun in T shirts and shorts.

When it warmed to -10 yesterday, I went out and shoveled to the burn barrel, then to the pump hut.

My hands got cold

My feet got cold

Like frostbite cold

Had to take breaks

But

My neck didn't get cold

My lovely cabi made me the most beautiful scarf.
Used to think scarves were for wimps.
Not
They're for smart people....with wonderful wives.
Yeah, we are slowly inching from noobs to sourdoughs.
That 'we got this' feeling is not as fleeting.
Less than 80 days til spring....

Oh, one thing I did wuz get out the ol' Nikon

Took pics of the seasonal migration of the rare tree climbing albino mastodons;






....and the (obviously male) sheep dog that herded 'em up the tree;


Then '51 Nash hood ornament;


And the icicle people, standing there having a nonchalant chat by the stove pipe;



Anyway, does anyone know the symptoms of cabin fever?

Dang, hattie, that is one scary video.

and

In all actuality, I'm sure most places in Canada can outdo what's prolly considered a puny winter we're havin' here.

It's just that we are not used to it....yet.

Y'all'll hafta show us the way in regard to the fine sport of icicle watching.

Got another foot of snow last night.
trees are getting shorter

'Nother foot on its way.
Gonna discover how high I can throw snow with a snow shovel.
Considering attaching the extension of my roof rake to it.

penned a few days ago;



I don't have cabin fever

w-a-a-a-a-a-y past cabin fever

it rained yesterday
ice, snow, mixed with rain make trekking somewhat entertaining

one more bird lands on my shoulder while I'm peeing I'm gonna tear its throat out with my channel locks

we got out a bit (had to)

The Jeep ride is rodeo like

helped a guy fetch his water

since we live among our native American brethren, I've been given to naming folks what I think fits their character

this fellow gets around with the help of a putter (back is out)

calling him Walks With Iron

didn't know what was involved with fetching water

if I had, I'da just slew Walks With Iron... with a large rock (mercy)

'where's the water'

'oh, it's just up the trail a piece'

'a piece' is several hundred paces

'up the trail' is up (gravity fed don'tcha know)

turns out I'm in pretty good shape

I can twirl, tumble, scream and flail during fractured cartwheels several times in succession without losing a dogged trudge

He normally does this on his own, but his back is out

His little woman is a little woman

Does art, needle work n' things
that's her contribution

thought about slaying her too, but she has those needles


He did hand me a pair of snow shoes

never worn snow shoes
Of late, reglar shoes have been enough challenge

I'm a bit of a shuffler

One does not shuffle, mosey, amble nor stroll in snow shoes
One should stride as though slogging thru deep quicksand rife with alligators when in snow shoes

When turning in snow shoes, one should be aware of what can occur when stepping on the back of the adjacent snow shoe

Snow angels are overrated

When picking one's self outta four feet of snow, one should remove at least one snow shoe
Long brightly colored scarves could become essential to body discovery



Walks With Iron now has 77 gallons of water in his indoor tanks, 80 lbs of dog food in his feeder, and a big wheel cart load of blood stained wood on his porch

We have owed Walks With Iron much, for many moons
Feel better about that

Home now

Happier

Relieved

Our water is only a hundred paces away

On flat land



Anyway, how's everbody doin'?

brings to mind my neighbors son, he came up to the cabin this last year and everything he brought was broken or didn't run ie chain saw, 4 wheeler, guns ect we named him broken arrow , he laughed and took it well... his dad was laying on the floor laughing ... have fun in the snow gary..

Waltzes in Snow,
Now I have an image of you and Cabi outside in parkas dancing to the music of a whistling wind!

I was glad to hear from y'all! I was beginning to think a Yeti had gotten you! Gosh, you're so good-hearted! Please be careful! Suffice it to say that you two are now winter-tested to the extreme and "you've got this!"

But if you insist on persisting with the mountain rescue missions, at least keep some brandy, whisky or other warming spirits on your person. Those St. Bernards know the score!

When tiptoeing thru the snowflakes, with camera in hand, seeking the white whale of picturesque gems, one can discover things not normally observed.

Like, saaaay, a white whale.....



One does not hafta sneak up on these snow laden inert objects, so I took my sweet time in setting up the tripod.


Anyway, what were those cabin fever symptoms agin?

Oh, took a couple mornin' pics

this is our view from the bed (we don't deserve this, but it'd take a mighty stout elderly lady to wrest it away from me)


down the path a bit
