With the dog days of winter hard upon us now I am sometimes having trouble finding my motivation on these colder mornings. Looking out the window at the falling snow and cold 23F temperature I had no desire to even step out the door but Pheebs was raring to go so it was out the door we did go and hopped into the Jeep. Our drive was basically a repeat of the day before and half an hour later we were home again. Just in time to re-stock the bird feeders. Almost a full-time job in this colder winter weather.

Periodic heavy snows today and I was on the end of my snow shovel several times keeping my pathways clear. The snow was light and fluffy so it was not hard to move around.

With a snow-blower and road grader clearing roads in the Park making them walkable, Pheebs and I headed off down one of the new roads where a lot of tree cutting and clearing has been going on. It was a refreshing walk on a cold winter's day. It was four years ago on this day Kelly had to come to my rescue in the night. Nothing serious, just embarrassing. Kelly Comes To My Rescue
