The weeks news and icy conditions

Well, it’s been another quiet week up here on the mountain, my little slice of heaven.

The weather has gone from very cold to almost spring-like. These last few days we have had freezing rain, then just rain.

Down in town, the roads are a mess and school has been canceled the last couple of days.

Teepee guy has gone back to California for a few weeks. For a while, it looked like Larry and Moe had a permanent house guest since he was spending more time down at their place than at his teepee.

Allen has been doing his best to keep the road open from his cabin to mine, and even going down to the snow drifts below and trying to knock them down a bit so he feels safer going down to his truck.

My UTV is in the shop, something happened to the forward gears last week and all it does is grind. Reverse works fine, so the mechanic is a little baffled. I should be checking on it this weekend. Hopefully, I’ll have it back soon. Snowmobiles are fun to ride, but hard to haul supplies up with.

Not much else going on around here. I haven’t been to town in a while, so I don’t know what the old loggers are up to.

I am ready for spring.  Winter is fine, but it sure slows things down around here.

Been trying to finish the bathroom, but I need to cut up more pallets for the wood and they are buried under a couple of feet of snow.

Everything I had put on the porch, planning to work on some inside projects, is buried under snow and ice. The wind has been coming from the east lately and has been pushing snow on the porch. I will be digging things out soon to start working with them.

Well, that’s all the news for the week. Bye for now.
