The Snow Lay on the Ground

4 Jan

It started snowing here around 3 PM Thursday and was still snowing when we went to bed. It had stopped when we got up, but it is very cold and cloudy right now, so we may get more. Big, beautiful, fluffy stuff, about eight inches of it, that is probably driving my poor grandson crazy.   Actually, I didn’t hear any reports of folks in the Baltimore area losing power, so maybe he had an easy day. It was pretty windy, and they don’t send the “cherry pickers” up if it’s over 35 MPH, for fear the trucks will turn over.

The snow is still so fluffy that when Blazer runs around he kicks up great clouds of the stuff.  I tried to get some pictures of the birds at the feeder outside the den window, but no luck; either the birds flew away as soon as they heard the camera go on, or there was a reflection from the window.

The Squire and I decided to go on the Reader’s Digest diet, as of today. When I went to bed last night, I told him I set out all the things he would need to make his morning shake. He was reading a good book and listening to music, so I don’t know if he even heard me. At any rate, when I got up this morning, he had already fixed himself fried eggs, and gone over to shovel the sidewalks at church .

Alone.   His age and this cold is an invitation to a heart attack. I love him, but that’s not very bright.

I’m not too sure about this diet, as it is a LOT more than I usually eat,  but we shall see. Of course, it calls for an hour of exercise every day, and when it is 18-F outside and blowing a gale, THAT’s not going to happen.

Wish me luck.
