And an occasional shift in the ice that creates a foot high ledge for the unsuspecting skater. I wonder if the trout dive when someone hits the ice? "Swim Ethel Swim!"

ATVs into the barn until April. Snowblower is on the Kubota. Deer are back in their yard in my wood lot. Generator full and tested. Going to give blood this afternoon. Heavy snow and 40 MPH winds due tomorrow.

We're ready. Let er come.

Beautiful photos Robin. All the pictures in the area mean a lot to us since we have visited the places the photos are from. I don't blame the ducks....5 months of no water? They will be so happy in the spring!

Thanks for all the photos everyone. I just sit here and day dream. Probably not the best career plan, but it's what I"m doing!

Love the snow. Guessing we'll actually be getting a bit this year ourselves. 6 inches for Christmas would be rather nice I do think!

MILK, BREAD AND EGGS!

The panic has begun. It's going to snow and it is as though it has never happened before. People are out sweeping the shelves clean in the stores. I don't get it, but some people don't keep even three days of food in their homes.

Why milk, bread and eggs? Mainers make French toast when it snows.

The picture I posted could have been from '62 . My father had to snowshoe out to the store. I was told that he took a backpack with him and picked up a few things for the neighbors.

He had to tunnel out of the front door.

Been there, done that. Also, one needs to be aware of the flotsam and jetsom that may have found itself upon the lake as it froze. I clipped and earlobe on a broken bottle once (after I hit a log and went buns over teakettle) when I was a kid - dang "bonfire teenagers" LOL...

I'm day dreaming, too. And wondering how I allowed myself to move to the Dallas area recently. Ugh. We actually got 1/2" of snow last week. It was so pretty coming down. The kids were all excited about making snowmen and such until I let them know it would all melt in a couple of hours. We're going to have to head north for at least one weekend this winter so we can all play in the snow!

If the pond out back freezes clear and cold it's fun to walk around on it and see the bass react under the ice. They are curious but if you move quickly they dart off in all directions. If you lay there and don't move alot they will swim right under you.
