Cold Beauty

I watched the cold foggy early morning come into the light. A magical fairyland I thought. One could just watch in awe at the transformation. The fog had rushed to form intricate crystals over everything. Odd. Something was odd, yet beautiful. I closed my morning reading, sipped my strong morning coffee brew and silently saidContinue reading “Cold Beauty”

A Snowblowing Life Principle That Works

¬†¬†Please follow this flowing stream of words around a few bends of thought. The southernmost neighbor asked a friend if he could use his tractor and snow blower for our driveway. I think he saved us all a lot of money. I sent him a text “hey neighbor, awesome job blowing out the drive. IContinue reading “A Snowblowing Life Principle That Works”

I’m in Chaage (yep, totally in charge)

Chaage: my young grandsons word for Charge This morning seemed like a good time to shovel some snow off the roof. It’s knee deep up there and the skylights are covered. There is heat loss around a skylight, ice dams build up and any melting water backs up under the shingles and leaks into theContinue reading “I’m in Chaage (yep, totally in charge)”

Dress for success in 2019

Snow day

It’s a very nice day to stay home, stay inside, lounge, drink coffee and make plans with my wife for the year. After a solid morning of much coffee and good talks I’m thinking cabin fever is highly overrated! I guess I only thought staying in a cozy cabin in Alaska for the winter wouldContinue reading “Snow day”

More Snow: A Creative Response (I think)

Just when it was starting to show signs of spring. No global warming here this year. Last year at this time it was 70 degrees. This morning I plowed snow with the bumper to get to work and getting home was really wild. In northern Minnesota I have found that sometimes we have to thinkContinue reading “More Snow: A Creative Response (I think)”

Making Music

The snowplow just got stuck in my driveway. It’s a sign I told him, I’m hunkering down awhile. Sometimes natures music gets a little too husky to relax and enjoy. It’s blowing and snowing and will continue for another 24 hours I am told. With a foot of snow on my deck rail and twoContinue reading “Making Music”

>whether or not report…Dangerous out there By Gary Fultz

>    The snow is deep here in northern Minnesota. The end of January and it’s supposed to be -7 degrees for a high. some will have -30 tonight. There is one snowbank high enough to climb onto the roof area of the house. The ladder is merely a convenience as one could jump intoContinue reading “>whether or not report…Dangerous out there By Gary Fultz”
