LOL my Dad drove from PA to VA and is laying up there to avoid the snow in the Carolinas. He's in a 2WD Highlander. Yep, saved that three grand not getting AWD. They're talking Outback now.......
What's CT leader?
For what I'm used to, that means Connecticut
I'm betting whoever 'he' is, he didn't drive all the way from Connecticut to look at some snow

Umbria, be thankful you didn't find your dog that has the luxury of a doggie door eating a rabbit next to your bed at 3:00 in the morning.
BTDT and it ain't pretty

EWWWWW!

OK - now you can all think I am one of those people that go ga-ga over a long winter. I'm going out to buy some bunny food - yes~~I~~am. That little bunny was really skinny. I thought of boxing him up and sending him to NEG but there wasn't enough meat to make anything.

The semi-feral cat that hangs out at our house brought me a bunny one day. The bunny was bigger than the cat. I didn't know what to do, because obviously, the cat was proud and it is a bonding thing when a cat brings you a "present" and lays it at your feet.

Or well . . . til just now, that is what I thought.

Maybe he was actually asking me to make him some Lapin a la Cocotte.

I just told the killer if she did that again I was sending her to Robyn's house.

Ani - French rabbit stew???? I watched an episode of the Sopranos where the chef killed a rabbit and served it up in his restaurant -it actual looked pretty good. I bet it tasted like chicken - everything tastes like chicken.

Well, actually, rabbit tastes rather like squirrel.LOL
With some of those skinny rabbits and so little meat on a squirrel, I used to use them together in a stew

Sorry. Old joke.

(And domesticated rabbit is much greasier than chicken - but really good straight off the BBQ!)

You're right. But we're supposed to be drooling over seed catalogs, making stews and roasts, chopping away at ice, knitting, reading books, making quilts, checking on the veggies stored in the root cellar, all that good old winter stuff that just has gotten so boring and most of it I don't want to do anyway. Also, keeping the bird feeder filled even if we have to tromp out to it on snowshoes. Then there is the darning of socks and the mending of clothing.

I got sick of winter LAST winter-- it seemed like we never had summer and now it's mid winter again. This is not a good New England attitude at all. We are supposed to feel guilty if we sit down during the day. "Idle hands are the Devil's workshop." The state of Virginia is starting to sound really good to me. Must email sister who lives there.
