Wow, glad I didn’t wait.

I just got back to the cabin from taking care of T&S’s dogs and horse, and…


…for once my timing was pretty good. This suddenly turned into the sort of morning that makes you wish your Jeep had windshield wipers. And a rear window.

Yesterday was in the sixties – today it’ll do well to straggle into the forties. March is schizophrenic like that. I used to say, “March is the month that breaks your heart,” because by the equinox I was really emotionally invested in winter being over. Really tired of the drama and the mud, tired of my ten fingers and five toes hurting all the time. Even for me there are times when pavement and central heat have their charms.

But for the past going-on-several years, with the cabin being complete at last and much more comfortable, winter isn’t the big emotional event it used to be. So I can look at days like this a lot more philosophically – make a mocha and watch the snow from a cozy chair by the window.

    I’ve really never thought of southern AZ as snow country. Glad you’re warm and cozy with your mocha.

    What a strange world we live in. There you are Joel, the better part of a thousand miles to the southwest of me and while you are being snowed upon, I’m sitting around in shorts. On the plus side, this will end and before you know it, the heat will be sucking the life out of you.

    Uh, yeah. Let’s look on the bright side. 🙂

    Glass or Plexi for that back window?

    Oops! Imbigened the picture and found that the glass hasn’t been replaced. Sorry.

To the stake with the heretic!
