* I was introduced to Silver Tea several years ago by the daddy of one of "my" little ones who I used to nanny. He said that his mother (grandmother?) always drank it, and now it was an after-dinner favorite of his. I've come to like it, too: sometimes (like last night!) it seems just right! Here are the ingredients (got a pen & paper?): pour boiling water into a mug. Add a dash of air and a handful of love. Consume.

I took a drive out the winter driveway on Wednesday evening in preparation for heading into town yesterday: was wondering if I had to do any quick road construction work or throw down an impromptu bridge.
Soooo far, I can still either bridge the cracks or s-l-o-w-l-y ease myself down into (yes, in the tiny Yaris) and then out of the wider ones. There is one bad spot that, when we get a sizable rain, will wash away too much for me to squeak around: then I'll have to load the pickup with gravel and refill a portion of it.
|This one's deep but narrow. So far, I can drive over it.|

|This is the bad spot that I can still squeeze around but which will, eventually, require some work on my part. It's hard to tell here, but these little crevices are at least a foot deep.|
I can't expect any help from the state (my winter driveway is a state forestry road) or ANYONE with big machinery (even anyone I might hire) until the road restrictions are lifted. This will mean waiting until May 13th, the shortest time that the limits will be on, or, potentially, June until I can expect outside help.
|Looking south from the bridge. The river's opening up early this year!|
|From the bridge looking north. The water's roilin'-boilin'!|
And, with that, I'll sign off. I have an early appointment with a client this morning. Cold temperatures again: 13 degrees yesterday morning and 17 this morning. 3-6" of snow predicted for tonight. Sigh. ;)
