STILL A LOT OF ICE AND SNOW ON LAKE HURON BUT IN A MATTER OF MONTHS PEOPLE WILL BE SWIMMING HERE
A second night of uninterrupted sleep. Yep, we must be home in our quiet little pine forest alright. Pheebs and I didn’t let a dusting of snow in the night keep us at home. Piled ourselves into the Jeep this morning, cranked Libby’s 4 wheel drive into snow mode and off we went out the driveway and into the snowy road countryside. Oh how sweet it is to be off the busy Interstates and highways and away from all the mad maniac drivers possessed by whatever it is that takes over people’s minds when they slide behind the steering wheels of their their vehicles . We may never leave home again!!
YES I HAD DEFINITELY BETTER GET THOSE BIRD FEEDERS FILLED UP
PHEEBS AND I HEAD OUT OUR SNOWY DRIVE-WAY
A FEW SNOW PLOWS OUT
STILL A BIT SNOWY HERE IN RURAL SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO CANADA
We slid right back into our old routine and headed for McDonald’s in Goderich. I especially wanted to get down around the harbor to see all the snow and ice on the lake. Luckily nobody was in the dog walking area so we parked and headed off walking along the bank overlooking Lake Huron. I had dressed warm and with snow only about 3 inches deep we made out just fine. Thankfully there were no icy cold winds blowing. Our day was a mixture of sun, clouds, and snow showers with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark.

THIS IS THE WAY TO ROTARY COVE BEACH
STILL A LOT OF ICE AND SNOW OUT ON THE LAKE
AHHHHH YES A TIM HORTON’S COFFEE ON A FROSTY MORNING WALK ALONG THE SHORES OF LAKE HURON
Up from the beach and harbor area we popped into Zehrs Supermarket, Walmart, and Canadian Tire. I had what I needed to now resume my morning Sounds Yukky - Tastes Yummy shakes. No the birdseed I picked up at Canadian Tire was not for my shakes. When traveling my usual breakfast consists of peanut butter and honey on a flat bread tortilla. I’m very much looking forward now to getting back to my usual healthier breakfast.
PHEEBS LOVES THE SNOW, BUT THEN AGAIN PHEEBS LOVES EVERTHING…OH, EXCEPT WATER OF COURSE
Pheebs and I were home somewhere shortly after 11 a.m. and as per usual we simply cruised relaxingly through the rest of the day. I did get all our bird feeders replenished but I can tell the birds are really cheesed off at me for leaving them high and dry late last December when we headed south. I did not see one bird at any of the feeders all afternoon. Not even the little Woodpecker.
LOOKING SOUTH DOWN THE LAKE TOWARDS BAYFIELD 13 MILES AWAY
Very disappointed our land line phone is not yet hooked up despite Kelly making several more phone calls to Bell Telephone. If we weren’t such old Dinosaurs with our archaic telephone thinking we would dump that land line and do like everyone else and just go with our cell phones. Some changes we are quick to adapt too, but others……well you know, it’s that old Dinosaur thing:((
Sure have been getting my upper body exercise shoveling snow these past few days but that’s Okay, I can use the exercise. I don’t mind shoveling snow as long as it’s not a whole winter’s worth which of course it hasn’t been for a bunch of years now. Looks like we may have some milder days coming up soon. After all, it is that time of year:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( During a terrible storm, all the highway signs were covered with snow. The following spring, the state decided to raise all the signs twelve inches at a cost of six million dollars. “That’s an outrageous price!” said a local farmer, “but I guess we’re lucky the state handled it instead of the federal government.” “Why’s that?” “Because knowing the federal government, they’d decide to lower the highways.”
Doctor Doctor I feel like a racehorse.
Here take one of these pills every 4 laps!
Doctor, doctor my sister here keeps thinking she's invisible!
Doctor, Doctor Can I have second opinion?
Of course, come back tomorrow!
Doctor, Doctor you have to help me out!
Certainly, which way did you come in?
