A new year and a new post. I promised a number of people on LJ that I would
do better this year and it is an easy promise to make in January. We'll see
if I can keep posting and reading come September…

The big news of the weekend was the snowfall. We went from almost no snow
on Thursday to 14 inches on the ground on Sunday. It was great! I got 3.5
hours of recreational shoveling in and now have a snow pile in the back
yard over 9 feet high. What's even better is that there is even more snow on the way
tonight so I will have enough for a really good snow fort. The plan is to
build it on Saturday and it might be my largest yet.

Growing up in south Florida, where snow was something that you sprayed on
you window from a can, I would dream of making snowball and building forts.
Now I finally have the chance and yes, it is as much fun as I had dreamed. Did I mention I hated Florida?

I have a cam pointed at the fort at


It's down at the moment but I'll have it running tonight.

Fun, fun, fun…

We got ten inches last weekend, and they're predicting three to six more overnight. It would take work to get a snow fort built, though.

I need to follow up on Nora's friend from Petoskey (her name has escaped my brain) who was interested in having me knit things for their hospital. Could you ask Nora for her name and contact info for me? Thanks.
