Snow and Ice '08

Good snowy morning to you! You gotta love short North Carolina winters. Very short by Northern standards. January is really the worst extent of it.

And when snow and ice arrive, like today, most people hang it up and take the day off. Don't drive - stay home! I love it. Rather than the who-can-get-to-work-on-time-narrowly-avoiding-smashing-your car-into-the-next century, the way I used to live in the northeast. But really...the most civilized thing to do is hunker down by the fire, like people do here. Makes sense, doesn't it?

This morning, I saw a hunter out in his boat, with his retrievers standing in the bow. He was cruising along, occasionally shooting a duck for breakfast (or lunch). I watched him awhile in the binoculars. The dogs were having a ball 'helping' him lift an occasional duck into the boat.

Okay I am off to put on a crock pot of soup, and hope the electricity stays on. Fun, isn't it?

See you on the lake,
