Christmas present from Uncle Murphy…


…Much thick wet snow. Could be worse: Last time I saw the sky the stars were very sharp and clear, promising a very cold night. Apparently the clouds arrived right after that. Now suddenly there’s inches of snow but it’s not very cold at all.

I cleaned off the stairs and a path to them with the solar panel squeegee, but the rest of the porch is a job for a snow shovel. Since I so seldom need a snow shovel I never bought one, but I do have a square one in the powershed. I’ll get it and finish the porch when I go out to clean the panels. Right now I’ve got the fire working, and I’m going back to my already nice and cozy propane-heated bedroom. I don’t care what Barbara Tuchman says, the twentieth century rules! 😀

    So is that TB’s favorite juniper?

    One low-hanging branch of it, yeah.

    BTW, if I can’t replace the porch’s plywood floor with better planking he’s going to need more anti-skid stuff. He managed to bang his hip pretty good slipping this morning. Of course he didn’t fall far (insert rolling eyes emoji here) but that’ll be something to prevent before he’s old enough for his joints to start hurting him.

    So the stars are right?
