Soon, Soon, Soon

Soon my rhodos will bloom and put a smile on my face, like they did last May when I took this photo.

But right now, the poor thing is suffering from yet another load of snow.  I took the broom after I snapped a photo of the snow covering, and swept off some of the clumps of snow.

Speaking of sweeping off snow, early this morning the heat pump made feeble noises as it tried to come on. While I stood there in my housecoat, waiting for the dogs to do their morning ablutions and other things, I swept about six inches of snow off the top of the heat pump. The feebly struggling motor suddenly blasted into action and blew the last load of snow up the sleeve of my housecoat. OH! BRRRR!  NOW I WAS FULLY AWAKE!

The little Toyota truck, 25 years old now, is still going strong, but before its next trip we will need to do a “search and rescue” mission for it. I think it’s under there someplace. Good thing it’s bright red. Yes, I think I see it there.

More snow is on the way, but today is supposed to be the last day of it and then, if we aren’t completely snowed in, we can try to get back to normal.

  1. Lovely to see those rhododendrons! We’re about to get a lot more snow too (between 30/40cms). A winter for the record books.

  2. I am looking forward to spring, that’s for sure! Lots of snow still coming down here in the Parksville area. Good to hear the heat pump kicked in after removing all the snow from the surface. I hate to burst your optimistic bubble but apparently more snow is forecast to come on the weekend. The sun is supposed to shine tomorrow, and then a few flurries/showers for Thurs and Friday with smatterings of sunshine, and then back to a few more flurries over the following few days. Good luck with your travel plans!

  11. Oh, I’m so sorry! Just kidding. At least you can cuddle up with hot chocolate or tea wearing warm PJs. A roaring fire or no fireplace?

  12. I didn’t think you got more than a couple of inches at a time in that area of the world. Looks pretty, but as my friend said to me yesterday, this stretch of winter is very trying. We had an ice/rain/snow mix today. I’m ready to change to the next season.

  13. It’s about the same way here. We have more snow now than we need all at once. What a beautiful winter!

  15. Knowing the rhodies are waiting for you, the promise of their pink blush, helps get you through the horror of the white stuff, doesn’t it? That’s what I try to believe anyway when I look out the window at a land of white. xo
