Are you kidding me? Snow? Now???
We are at the ranch and woke up to a winter wonderland!!
My toes are cold!!!! Note to self: Today is not a flip flop day……
We woke up to snow this morning…..and yes, that is disappointment you hear in my
voice letters….but I was so happy that Jimmy and his buddy, Nathan made it safely…here they come!!
That means the treadmill, eliptical, weights and all the
crap awesome exercise equipment is here too!! So, I guess that means that even when it is raining….I now have no excuse.
So we decided to take a spin on the Artic Cat out into the Caribou National Forest … but then we got in a pickle. And I had no camera, but you simply have to trust me….See the farthest mountain there near the top?
Well, that, my suspicious friends, is where the battery went dead….it really does look farther .. but we figured that it was a 5 mile walk back to the ranch. When we were on the top of that hill we could see our house…but that didn’t do much for morale. So we walked….through the creepy, HAILING, forest all the way back to the ranch. Thankfully for all of us…I had my sense of humor intact. (Jimmy wasn’t as thankful…hmm…)
There had been so much rain that the roads have some “issues” out here. We are having our own little mini landslides!
Ok, not so much saddle, but I did make it back to the ranch. Last night I got to the ranch at about 9:30pm….creepy time…stayed up until midnight and had the hardest time trying to go to sleep.
This morning I woke up ready to rock and roll! That is code for clean….but first I had to peek outside and get some pics…..remember…it was last month when we took pictures of about 5 feet of snow….now…
Looks like the garage made it without any snow damage.
BUT…..before I go….check this out!! My neighbors heard me whining and brought me a little something….since Jimmy is driving our truck up here from Phoenix…….I’VE GOT WHEELS!!!! WOO HOOO!!! MANY THANKS, CLYDE AND REA!!
Tomorrow I might just have to swing into town… (that’s how I talk now) … maybe chat with the locals, grab the mail….and….well, then I might come back and nap. It’s a rough life here…just me and the elk, who by the way are thoroughly enjoying eating our grass….(grrrr)
