Just In Case You Were Wondering…

Yes, I am still here…

So much for that early spring, eh Michaela? Status report: two feet of snow in the Green Mountains, with an ice storm and a wind advisory, (gusts to 50 mph), winding up right behind. The power has been on and off – mostly off yesterday – for two days. Keep your fingers crossed for me! Thank goodness for Johnny, (that would be my trusty John Deere 4300, with backhoe, shown above with my tired, wet self), long johns, muck boots, fire wood, a well stocked freezer, and two dear, dear men named Ray and Billy.

Hmm, I guess I should tell you a bit about what makes life possible here, (here is on a piece of ledge I call Ferncliff, sitting in a small clearing at 2,000′, in the middle of a forest, in the middle of nowhere). What kind of lunatic lives like that? Hint: you are looking at her. It dawned on me when I loaded this photo that I really don’t post many pictures of myself here, (there are a couple in the pages at left). That’s because I don’t have many photos of me, and that’s because usually I am holding the camera. Would you like to know more of the back story? Maybe you would. You tell me…

The past few days have been… adventure filled. I will write some more about it this weekend when I will be, (hopefully), snuggled up by the fire with Oli, (that would be my yellow lab), and Doctor Goof, (that would be my fat cat). But right now I have pressing things to attend to. I have a stuck plow-truck and a greasy luge-run of a 1,500′ driveway to clear, (and boy that switch-back is a killer, believe me). So, if you don’t hear from me for a little while, it’s likely because the power is out, (I connect to you via satellite), or I am out clearing snow and/or ice.

Thanks for following along. I’ll be back soon…

Michaela

I do get the weather up here…

This is “Mad Max”, my buried car…

Part of the buried entry walk. Hmm, better get to work !

A little wet, and a little tired, but still loving it here…
