I've been lucky this winter; considering the number of times we lost power. Or water. Or were snowed in. I always have a box of canned and dry foods in case we're stuck on the farm, and we needed it this winter. The horses all made it, the trees and fences took a beating. We have TV and internet via satillite, and due to some miracle, kept both, most of the time, even with the snow.
The peeper frogs are out in force, daffodils are beginning to head, birds are returning. We still have piles of snow around, and it was in the 50's today!
I wanna go camping, dammital! Gotta smell the old canvas tent, the sheep and goat hides, the wood smoke and the home brewed ale. The noise of my friends drinking and telling lies, or playing drums and dancing. Meat on a spit. Half naked middle eastern dancers...*sigh* People beating each other senseless with rattan swords! SPRING!!
'kay I'm done ranting now. Glad you got through it..we gotta show to put on! *wink*
