While Hillary and Obama duke it out in some of those “other” primary states, we’re distracted by weighter matters here in Central NH. Today, we are a mere twenty inches away from breaking the all time (recorded) snowfall record … probably less after yesterday. My back can attest to the enormity of the accomplishment … and we’re running out of places to put the white stuff!
Needless to say, the view from the chiminea ain’t what it used to be … but it still makes for a nice cozy space, once that fire gets going! (And please note the “refrigerator” to the left of the chiminea and the right of the lantern-hanger. It’s definitely an appliance that gets put to good use on winter evenings!)
Meanwhile, while we shovel, and then spend quality time relaxing in front of the fire, the dogs of March (and cats, too) explore the myriad small pathways that we keep open for their travels. It’s amazing to watch the cats, in particular, step daintily and carefully between the gargantuan snow banks!
And the deer, the deer. It’s been a very hard winter for them. They come to our birdfeeder pretty much daily, now- and often several times a day. At this rate, it’s going to be a very long time before all this snow melts and there’s any greenery for them to munch on. We have an ongoing debate, at the moment, about whether to start feeding them or not.
