We had our biggest snowfall of the year when it got down so cold once again after a brief warming. It appeared that our snowless winter had ended. We finally had several inches of snow on the ground, and I was staying off the snowy roads for a few days.
It took me a couple of days to figure out what to do. There is a crawlspace under my house where the pipes are. Early in the morning I took my infrared heater under there and turned it on. I was only hoping and guessing that it would help, but that evening my water came back on. I got lucky. Really lucky.
This river is probably thawing out by now. It appears that our deep freeze is over for the year. Didn't I already say that? We're finally seeing the beginnings of spring around here. That should be a good sign for the rest of you.
Now that the weather is warming up a bit, I'm hoping to be out traveling a bit more again, and I'm hoping to be abler to get back onto a few nature trails. That part's going to be hard because I've let myself get too out of shape this winter cooped up from the cold. I'll have to start slowly, but I will start. I'll talk to you later.
