The snows of winter

As I write the temperature is warming, the snow is melting and big thumps of snow are falling out of the rig on to the deck. This is the snow that wasn’t, then was, then wasn’t then maybe was but not today maybe tomorrow, and finally was 4 hours late and 2 inches more than they thought. It did however bring a peaceful quite to Ballard and Ariel’s new home. I a very impressed and grateful for our little wood stove, and happy that I planned ahead and cut up some more fire wood over the weekend. They say it will be all melted by morning, or they did at some point tonight. redacting my previous statement it is snowing like mad so tomorrow is anyone’s guess. Pictures of the boat and ballard to follow.
