Comments on: More Snow http://mcseavey.org/blog/2007/12/14/more-snow/ The wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. -- Mary Oliver Wed, 09 Sep 2015 20:33:37 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Mardé http://mcseavey.org/blog/2007/12/14/more-snow/comment-page-1/#comment-5148 Sun, 16 Dec 2007 17:54:48 +0000 http://mcseavey.org/blog/index.php/more-snow/316/#comment-5148 We are getting a TON of snow! The wind is strong, the snow is blowing, and the temperature is about 5F which is -15C, according to my calculations. Brrrrrr We already did a little shoveling just to try to keep ahead. And we’ve got more wood in for our wood stove. (We also have oil heat.)

I did make it OK over to Chet’s on Hawk Mountain road even without weights in the back of the truck. That road is also known as Skunk Alley to the locals, but it’s now paved and was cleared of snow. We used to have a couple bags of sand in the truck but they rolled around. Yes, concrete would be good.

Thanks, Barbra. Yes, snow is pretty to look at, plus I like to check out animal tracks when I snow-shoe. They’re mostly deer but some coyote plus plenty of squirrels, and porcupine tracks in certain areas. The people in the north of Maine, say Aroostook County, call us in west-central Maine “flatlanders”, but still we get snow. So, you’re in the French Flatlands? 😀

Yes snow… it’s mighty pretty when you are in front of the window, enjoying the scenery. But, what a pain for driving!! We don’t get even half the quantity of your snow; it’s starting to be rare here in the French flat lands ( it depends on the year for the mountains).

You all stay safe .

After that its starts to be all work.

Good luck. you might want to get some sand bags for your truck or a few bags of concrete work well too.

I’d be driving down tomorrow, Saturday, when it’s supposed to be fair but cold. It’s the coming back part that could be the problem. Of course, I could wait ’til Monday but I don’t want to impose on Nadeem’s hospitality, plus who would shovel out Cynthia? Then again it might get bad by Saturday night, in which case I might get stuck at Llanda’s and impose on her hospitality.

No good options, huh? Thanks for your concern though. I’ll definitely take that into consideration — I want to be around too!! 😎
