Hello All Season Bloggers,
The link this week is open from Sunday February 24 to Friday March 1 at noon, Pacific time.
Many thanks for all the congratulatory wishes, but hope you know that I also focused on the third year birthday, because without you, there is no meme/challenge:):) Am appreciating all of you efforts very much and
loved seeing and reading your interesting, beautiful, and thoughtful posts last week!
Also my Profile changed, not intended, but it’s too complicated to change back to the old one at wordpress, so you may see shinyex added.
Still the same blog, the same me, Junieper/Jesh 🙂
What is meant here with: not for the faint of heart?
The city, cleans and sands the streets when it snows.
On an unpaved road, that work is done by the home owners.
In the city there are rarely electrical outages, In the forest the power fails with almost with any storm.
Even with electrical outages in the city, there are enough stores with generators, and cars light the streets. On the country side the light inside the houses are the only lights for direction.
In the city, the residences, offices, and stores are built at the street.
On the road and driveway here, lays gravel, descending about 5 feet to go into the garage. This means even with 7 inches of snow, a 4-wheel drive still cannot make it to the street.
Am not complaining, just telling you the differences 🙂
In my little world – now a historic image, of what happened last week, which I tell you about below. I purposefully left in the telephone pole at the border of our property.
The week before, when having a viewing of the paintings in the studio, my guests wanted to see the back yard and the trees. We stood and talked outside for at least 40 min., so it was nice weather!
When the snow started falling all that was visible in the front were these three small trees.
One of the several power outages these last 2 weeks happened at 11.40 on Monday night. We reported it to the electrical company, and put our camping lights on and some candles. Went to do groceries next day, since we could make it out of the driveway, and when leaving, we saw … THIS!
It was not only a tree that knocked down the phone line and causing the power outage, it was a tree at least 65 feet tall.
We were not surprised, since the night before, a howling wind was raging at about 50 miles per hour, with all kinds of scary noises outside. In the forest there are no paved roads with lanterns, so almost pitch black at night.
We were not about to check what all those noises meant:)
Really don’t like trees being decimated by a storm or beetle, but the upside of this tree (a cedar) being down, is that it gives us fire wood. Nature saved us a bundle, because to have a big tree like this cut down, costs about $600-
With 7 inches of snow, no tire tracks before noon
on this long unpaved road, but the animals
took all these weather changes in stride!
The power line was restored that day.
Part of the neighborhood watch, checking if everyone behaves properly…
