Yesterday we attended the NOHE to help us have a better background in the ins and outs of being a small landlord. Afterwards we dropped by on one of our tenants to put up some blinds for them and have a bbq (as well as to enjoy their shower!)
They mentioned once or twice that there was supposedly a chance of snow overnight. I saw the same thing on the local news broadcast just before pastry time as well, but it was really hard to imagine it.
At two a.m. this morning I woke up to a tingly bladder, and noted that the scene outside the patio doors was unusually bright – likely due to the nearly full moon (no, not mine – the real one – I do wear at least underpants at night!)
As you can imagine, without my glasses, I couldn’t see accurately, but upon sober second look, things weren’t the same… shape… outside. I put on my spectacles to be treated to, well, a spectacle! Everything was covered in a thick layer of snow.
I lay down, not sure if the proper reaction was excitement or dread – my body didn’t really care, it feels both of those emotions the same way. I decided that it wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle. I still would like to have more wood put up for NEXT winter, but at least this winter should be covered for the most part.

|I didn’t realize how much we seem to have a used car lot here!|
|At least the pond didn’t freeze – today. I think it was frozen yesterday though.|
It’s likely best for me to make this list elsewhere, as it is sure to grow throughout the day.
|A close up. Is that a patio chair there?! Another thing to put away!|
Where are my winter boots?
|Sauna looks very wintery!|
