the dead of winter

after a quiet start to winter, central illinois got a snowy blowy storm that dumped like 8 inches & then sculpted those inches into knee deep drifts that have turned my yard into an obstacle course requiring a workout just to get to the goats & ducks.

also, i had to dig out my driveway, both for the mail delivery person as well as for my own plans to ever leave the house. i don’t have a snowblower or a plow. i did it by hand & was more than impressed with how strong i am as well as how fit yoga has kept me. i don’t even have a sore back.

this morning we got the added element of frosting on all the trees & bushes & anything sitting still enough to be frosted.

      1. one year in wisconsin i was pregnant & it snowed like crazy. i went off the road once & had to get my car back on the road by myself. another time i was hit on a snowy road & my car was totaled.
        yet still, every time it snowed–which was seemingly non-stop, i would be all, “snow–yay!”
        maybe i was a husky in a past life.
