Another snowstorm blew in and dumped six more inches on our snowcovered acreage. We won’t be seeing the ground until late spring. Hubby took my SUV leaving me homebound for the fourth day in a row. Hmmmm…..more knitting? How much knitting can a gal stand?
One of the things I enjoy most after a snowfall has abated is being able to see ‘who’ has been tramping around the perimeter of my cabin. I spotted tracks coming up the side steps – do you see them? And I followed them all the way up to a downstairs window. They are most definitely deer tracks, but what was this deer doing looking in a window?
Snooks has informed me that they are NOT his tracks! The poor little guy could hardly walk straight after his morning constitutional. He needs some doggy boots! He also needs a haircut!
This was a mild winter storm. The most severe Colorado winter storm I can remember was a blizzard back in October of 1999. My husband, away on a business trip back east, tried to outrun the storm. He let me know he was going to try to do this early in the morning. He made it all the way to Denver only to find out his commuter flight had been cancelled to Colorado Springs. Not thinking to call his anxious wife to let her know he had made it that far, he chartered a van with several other people. It took them eleven hours to get to the Colorado Springs airport on a stretch of highway that normally takes a little over an hour. When they got to the CS airport it had been shut down and his car was buried in snow. He spent the whole weekend at the airport.
The worst part about this severe winter storm? It was before we had a cell phone and I went almost 24 hours without knowing where he was or if he was safe. The second worst thing? It was my birthday and I was homebound with two little girls.
What about you? Can YOU reflect back and share a story about a severe winter storm that is memorable your life? If you can, please share it in the comments.
