What A Difference 10 Days Can Make!

Finally!  We can now actually park at the house!! 

It is an awesome thing....NOT to have to carry 1 laptop case, 4 bags of groceries, the sack that has my 'real' shoes in it, not to mention the bulk size toilet tissue bundle, my 'everything I just might need today' shoulder bag, and the Starbucks coffee that I stopped to get just to give me enough spizz to get down the 1/4 of a mile drive covered in snow and ice!  On FOOT!

So being able to park at the house...that's a big thing!

Recently, we had a 'warming trend'....more like a tropical blast actually....but it did the trick.  It melted 20ish inches of snow - quickly!!

So I thought I'd give you an idea of what 10 days can do. 

Out the dining room window.....before....

....and 10 days later.....

Out of the other dining room window....

.....and then 10 days later you can actually see the pond....even with the ice still covering it.

The drive right out front also had quite a change.

From this beautiful winter wonderland ~, normal!

Probably the most important thing that 10 days can do is provide the weary travelers a better way to get to their vehicles.

From the brave bunch headed out in the morning on foot down the drive, down the hill, around 3 curves, 1/4 of a mile to the gate.... being able to DRIVE up to the house!!  Through the gate, down the 1/4 of a mile drive, around 3 curves, up the the house!

Now all we have to do is figure out what to do with all this MUD!   

Love to all,
