We spent most of the day without power… no biggee there, I’m set with a gas stove for cooking and wood stove for heat… it does really impact what you can and can’t do though!
First order of business was to save my bushes outside…
Reaching high with a garden tool, I could shake the limbs to release their heavy coat of snow, and bend themselves back upright off the ground. I had to have my coat’s hood up to save myself from a snow bath too!
Some branches were already broken, but it gave me a unique bouquet for my table.
I have an old rotary phone in the basement, which continues to work, unlike the new ones… so we *could* call “out”. I almost wrote this post on the process of dialing… with your finger… a sensation I’d even forgotten. I should let my grandkids call someone with it. What a chance to do something so “old-fashioned”.
Even my “old-fashioned” clothesline held a line of snow…
Today was a taste of Wyoming spring weather and thankfulness for those “old-fashioned” things that still work, and still made my life much easier in this wet, wet storm.Find me here!
