I love living in the country. The quiet, the beauty and the critters all make me happy. The drawback? I've been snowed in since Tuesday night. Mr. Bad Rabbit was on a business trip so I was toughing it out alone. It really wasn't all that bad. The worst was lugging firewood through the snow.
My other problem was our electric gate froze shut. I was stuck even if I dared try to drive down our road, which I wouldn't because I've crashed twice in the past even before getting to the gate. Beyond the gate the road gets stupid steep, with deep drop-offs. It scares people even in the summer.
And my oral chemo couldn't be delivered because UPS claimed 'circumstances beyond their control.' I didn't think that truck was going to make it up here anyway. The driver would have been crazy to try. I'll pick it up at the UPS facility today. I hope.
When the snow let up a bit my neighbors made it down the hill to the mailboxes. They brought me the mail and put it just inside the gate. I got my exercise huffing up and down the hill to the gate, that's for sure!
Today is beautiful. The valley below is snow-free but we still have plenty up here. I am crossing my fingers I can make it down the mountain safely today. I'm supposed to be moving into a second booth at the antique mall, plus I have a doctor appointment. Ho boy. I'll be white-knuckling it until I reach bare pavement.
Here's what my world looked like this morning.
The snow is off the trees and cross my fingers, will be off the gravel road, before I have to head into town. I'm not looking forward to loading furniture in the snow, but a girl has to do what a girl has to do. Right?
Happy Friday everyone!
