Going for the Record

The View from HereWhile 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! 

March 1 ChimineaNeedless 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!)

Dogs of March 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.

    Jordy,
    I am unable to go tomorrow as that is my singing night. I think I would route for Conant as they have been dealing with the loss of a teammate and playing with some inspiration.And I think they are a better coached team from what I hear, but I don’t really have any feelings on either one of them. Kuddos for 2 different and unexpected teams making it to the finals. Have fun!

    Hey there, Paula LR – I agree … you city-dwellers have some extra challenges coping with the snow. But hey – most importantly, are you going tomorrow night (NHIAA Class M Final)? A couple of us are. I can’t decide who I’m rooting for – but last night given the choice between an orange and a red dinner plate, I chose red … so I think it must be Campbell!
