This is the 4th significant snowfall in 6 days - still snow on the ground from previous days. Looks to be 5-6" this morning and still snowing hard. The temps have stayed below freezing for a few days now. Need to bring that hummingbird feeder in to thaw - always a few stay for the winter, also heard the birds chirping so need to clean off the birdfeeders and make sure they have some yummies too, maybe put out the suet. Nice to know we don't have to get anywhere today other than figuring out how to get the trashcan down the steep hill to the road for pickup tomorrow morning - driveway is 1/3 mile all downhill curves with steep drop-offs. Going to get a beef stew going in the crockpot, fire is warming up the house, might even bake some Christmas cookies today..........would love to get to the spinning wheel or loom room. As long as we don't lose power I'll be a happy camper.
