Just Keeps Snowing…

 

We had a blizzard warning for this past weekend, mixed with high winds and dangerously low wind chills.  -20 to -30 below zero, brrrrr! 

My wonderful husband was the one to venture out and do chores and keep our road from drifting shut and the neighbors plowed our this weekend.  He had came inside to warm up for a minute and decided he needed a kiss.  Umm, no thanks honey, I’ll wait until you thaw out!

He also spotted this hawk hunkered down in the storm.  At first we weren’t sure what type of a bird it was…

Only 17 more days until Spring, right?!

I can’t wait for warmer days and to enjoy Montana’s wild flowers again…

Double Date…

This past Saturday we had a double date with my parents…

My mother is the primary care-giver, support person, and everything else to her sister, who is going through the final stages of terminal brain cancer.  My mom is the most caring person I know and would do anything to help anyone.  She works a more than full-time job at a busy health clinic and then spends her evenings and early mornings with her sister in the hospital.  She’s starting to run low, so we kidnapped her for the afternoon and evening and went to her favorite spot, took some pictures, froze to death and waited for the sun to set…

There wasn’t much color that night but we had fun.  Afterwards, we met my brother who happened to be in town for supper.  I think we all had a great time and it was wonderful to see my mom laugh and smile again.

Did I mention we have a handful of Suffolk ewes due any day now?  Hopefully they got the memo on not delivering in this cold.  Brrrrrr….

Beautiful Day with the Boys…

After the fog cleared early last Monday, we were graced with a virtually cloud-free, blue sky day.  I knew I needed to head to Glacier, even if it was just for a few hours…

That afternoon was virtually windless making Lake McDonald very glass like!  Actually, I don’t remember ever seeing it as smooth as it was that day.P1120188

Two of the boys also decided to tag along…
