It's a lovely day TODAY

Post  JimLewis on Sat Dec 19, 2009 3:15 pm

But yesterday was pretty dreary. Eight inches. I suspect that's a near record for my little town.

Good call, Jim. If/when our Lottery numbers come up that's exactly what we'll be doing too.

btw Just to show how much of a townie I still am though, I did breathe a sigh of relief when I got to your fourth photo as the brown horse was up and around, having been a tad concerned in the earlier pic when it was lying on its back with its legs in the air.

They'd been up in the stalls all day yesterday and last night when it was snowing and blowing, and they wanted to roll as soon as they went out today. The white one is Charles Dickens. (We used to have Little Nell.) The brown one is Maggie. This is Dickie's first snow. Maggie came to us from Ohio so she's a vet.

The snow storm that gave Jim his 8 inches is setting records for December snowfall up and down the East coast of the U.S...between 1 and 2 feet from Washington D.C. to Boston, some places getting more. We got over 2 inches of rain and temps just above freezing here in Georgia...yuk.

Ah! Alas... I can only dream of that.


What's that? I was talking about our lack of snowfall in Scotland. What are you thinking about?


I suspect Kev may remove this. Many apologies for being risque, but it presented too good an opportunity to miss. And it is Christmas. My halls are decked.

What a wonderful house Jim, and a beautiful country setting...when you add the horses rolling, that's top drawer my friend. I really miss the infrequent snow we experienced in the Southern Arizona High Desert (Oracle, 4500 feet). We were snowed in for SEVEN days one time...steep, unpaved driveway and no 4-wheel drive. Maybe the fondest memory of the thirtysomething years with my wife.

Most likely, I'm better off where I am as I embark on my newest bonsai adventure...Shohin...wish I had started thirtysomething, or more, years back. Likely my last splurge, I'm going to Santa Nella for the California Shohin Society Seminar in February. Hope to come home with a small Redwood (Bob Shimon) and a small Twisted Pomegranite (Jim Barret)...lottery, you know...

Well, seasonal cheers...Merry Christmas...to h... with political correctness!

Pat writ:

And Martin scribeth:

Pat: We've been snowed in for 4 days now. I'm trying to shovel out our 200 yard up-and-downhill drive, but at 72, the amount I can do at one time is a bit more limited than it used to be. It takes a beer or two and some time to go at it again. Even my 4-wheel-drive Subaru won't make up up some of our snow-covered hills -- or maybe it's this Florida driver. Suspect

Martin: Yes it is lovely. I don't think any of those pictures showed the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background. We enjoy gazing on them (though I'm glad we don't live up there; they had 2 FEET of snow about 15 miles up the road from us).

Right now, though, I'd like to start seeing some frost-browned pasture grass again. As would, I suspect, the ponies.
