Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Snow Snow Snow It snowed a little over one inch –that’s right 1.0 inch- last Thursday. We were stuck for days. Actually we were stuck until Monday. On Monday and Tuesday, I couldn’t get out of the driveway and my neighbor loaned me her car. Our drive is located on an “upslope” so once the snow froze, we couldn’t get up that hill. Finally, yesterday, Wednesday, we were able to get out on our own. It was a bit “dicey” and we had to be careful but we make it. Temperature is getting warmer each day.

One added bit on excitement in cabin fever living-Tuesday night we lost our water. We had nothing. So no shower Wednesday morning, among other, unnamed, inconveniences. We are on a shared well with 8 other houses. After an investigation and search, we discovered that one of the houses day the was, whose owners are only here on weekend, had a burst pipe, Their garage was flooded. All the water rushed from the pipe and effectively emptied our well. Once the water was cut off to that pipe, the water came back. I love living in the mountains!
