Stuck in the woods

The snow and ice that everyone else has been dealing with has come to the 100 Acre Wood. Tim left for church this morning (he leaves before we do for worship team practice) and turned around and came home. He said it was bad on the ridge and worse off it. It has been alternately raining, snowing and sleeting all day long.

We've had a fairly lazy day playing games, eating pancakes for lunch and watching a movie. The fireplace going all the while. It is nice to have a day together doing nothing; a day to reconnect and enjoy.

It is starting to get foggy. Odd isn't it? There is snow on the ground and fog in the air, giving everything a washed out appearance. I've been waiting for a good day to take a winter view of our road to go along with the fall view and the summer view, I've posted before. I am waiting for that winter wonderland shot. The one where the tree branches are heavy with snow and all the dirt is covered white. We have had so little snow this year. I thought maybe today I would be able to get that shot, but it isn't going to happen. Instead, here is one from my back door,

and one from the front door.


  1. I think we're being hit by the same front. We were able to get back and forth to church and after that to Barberton to try out some new bikes for Matthew's birthday. we want to get him a bigger bike and we've looked a dozen times, but never took him with us until today. It's snowing now, but we've got freezing rain warnings until 7 AM and it's starting to get really hazy. I like the pics!

  2. Your property is so pretty, in any season. Secretly I've wanted to live like that, not with the cul-de-sac and neighbors and such, but I'm a chicken to go without city water and sewage and all that.

  3. You may find this hard to believe, but we have city water! The whole county does. It is hard to get a good well and before city water most people had cisterns.

    But not sewers, we have a septic tank.
