Snow, Snow, and More Snow

January was bitter cold but not much snow. The snow we are getting this year is powdery, no moisture which we really need. We had 3" over the weekend and another 8" yesterday on top of that. The problem living here is we can go a week with no sun and thus no melting. the city in their stupidity plowed the cul de sac leaving several neighbors stuck in their drives. I imagine today will be spent helping them dig out, I got my long johns, I'm ready. I have been cleaning like a fool in my basement and the finished part is done, and the heater room is half done, so my goal of getting it done this winter is almost done. I have taken 3 car loads full of stuff for mom's church garage sale, so it is going to be put to good use. This morning the little birds are out, 8 goldfinches and several house finches and juncos, I love the little birds. I also got some lap robes done and made myself an carryall for my cross stich to put it away at night out of prying little paws. This bottle of dish soap has a sweater on.
