The plow is at my folks' (since I took it off in the spring before I knew where I'd be living). The truck is at Swamp River Ridge. Fully loaded with a HUGE load of pallets (for storage bases here at the cabin) and timbers that were milled on the sawmill and from SRR trees that I (we, the ex and I) own with another set of friends. And, I drove the little Yaris when I left Thanksgiving morning. And it has bad tires on it. Soooo, I don't think I'll be able to make it in today with the car('s bad tires). Thankfully, Mom & Dad have dedicated one of their Suburbans and the high-sided trailer to me until The Move is complete. So, I'll drive that to SRR today, sans the trailer (since I don't know how much unplowed snow I'll encounter). The Canadians who came down for the post-holiday shopping were amazed that we had such a little (comparatively) amount of snow . . . because they got about a foot! And, as you know, Swamp River Ridge is pretty close to Canada (700 yards)! That means . . . there's probably gonna be a LOT of snow at SRR! So, as I said, the drive home is gonna be interesting today - to see how much snow there is up there.
And, did I mention that - because the temps were SO mild Thursday morning, I threw all three cats outside before I left? Sigh. Yes, I am a horrible cat mother.
I took this picture out the window of my car on Black Friday to illustrate that winter has arrived:
Here's a shot I took this morning out the bedroom window of the cabin:
Fortunately (!), it turned cold quickly following the rain that started Thanksgiving's snowfall, so all the white stuff is light and fluffy. I can't imagine what a bear it would be (getting into SRR) if this was all wet cement!
So, with that, off I go to get myself together here at the cabin and ready to head out.
I'll let you know how it all goes (early this coming week, probably)!
