Yes, children, this is where I live ... this is where I am located .. right there in the middle of it all.
My mom always said I liked to be the Center of Attention ... well ... here we are again, right in the middle of it.
I am not panicked like I was last year when yet another snow storm hit .. but it did give me pause when I looked outside this am .. I knew something was up when I woke to total silence .. not even Minette was making noise!
The bottom steps have disappeared on my front porch.
The birds are hiding.
Not even deer tracks through the garden as there are every other morning ..
I feel as though I woke up in another world.
One where there is only Minette and I .. huddling with a cup of coffee and wondering how long it will take to be dug out .. will I see another human before Spring ?
Will there be a Spring ?
Will there be a Summer ??
Yes, I woke up with more questions than answers .
I am listening to music from Argentina. It only makes me more homesick.
But I will keep listening ... better than the dead silence that comes with a foot of snow.
Take care, be safe, be warm ..
