Nonetheless, I knew we were in for it.
Indeed.....this is what greeted us at milking time this morning...
And half an hour later, milking finished, we're inside...watching all manner of snow squalls and snow devils (mini-tornadoes, like dust devils, only of snow). The wind is roaring through the limbs beside the house. It sounds like it's right here at my desk; and huge swirls of ice crystals are dancing in the sun as it peeps out shyly from behind big billowy clouds.
The turkeys are basking and preening.....taking shelter from the driving wind between two lumber piles, feathers fluffed to the max.
And now, fifteen minutes later, the fickle sun apparently has decided to stick around for awhile.....until, that is, it passes the torch to another weather event, lurking just over the horizon...!
Internet-wise, this week has been mixed. Yesterday the 'Net was so slow, it made it all but impossible for me to do comments, upload photos and post my blog. I finally just gave up altogether! But there is good news on the horizon. This past Tuesday Frontier Communications called me from Minneapolis to tell me that they were anticipating getting us connected to High Speed Internet by AT LEAST March 31, 2011; however.....they were hoping to get us connected BEFORE then, ideally sometime in February because they are apparently running some specials and would like to include us in their offerings! WOW! To think that the phone company called ME! To give me this news!
Thank you Dineen Anderson at Frontier. What great service!
So, anyway....back to the slow, dial-up, Internet at the moment. As a stop gap I'm going to use my own blog for the moment, to run a few comments on yours. That way I can minimize the waiting and waiting and waiting...!
Thank you, everyone! I love what you write. You are all such amazing people!
Here's to a wonderful weekend!
See you Monday!
