The price of living in paradise

Did you ever wonder how you wound up living where you do? Especially if you moved across several states to be there? Oh say from a warm busy big city to a small town, way back in the boonies, with small little two lane roads that are scary in bright sunny weather much less in the middle of winter? Yeah, that would be me. Every single winter when I'm shoveling snow and ice, digging my way to my car, then digging out my car which always seems to get covered even under the carport! Now it usually happens at least a couple times every winter but we generally have a few weeks respite in between the storms! Not so this winter!
Yesterday morning I woke up to about an inch of pure sleet on the ground and it was falling in a steady torrent! No school, no surprise! But I also called in to work for while the little motel thing was ok last week as I was already in town, I wasn't about to head into town with it coming down that way and know for sure that I would be stuck there! Maybe I'm just getting older, but I prefer to sleep in my own bed these days! The sleet continued until late yesterday evening with a final accumulation of just under 4 inches of pure ice crystals! I've been here since 1994 and only one other time has it been bad enough that the postman didn't deliver the mail and the trash service didn't run! Yep, it's just that slick! Then last night the sleet apparently turned to snow! So this morning we have a nice little dusting of about an inch on top of all that lovely ice! And so another day snowbound with the cabin fever getting stronger by the minute! Just so many naps I can take, so many cups of coffee I can drink and so many old joke recycled blogs I can read! It is very pretty though, just too cold to get out and enjoy it!

This is right out my front door











This is just to the left of front door













So it's just another price I pay to live in paradise! Tourist seem to think it must be so cool to live at Beautiful Lake of the Ozarks all the time! Personally I just don't enjoy it all that much!

And you know if you pay really close attention you'll find some clues you'll need tomorrow..........jus sayin........

If we didn’t have weather to talk about what would we talk about …sex?
Oh right we do!
Very pretty and enjoy your time off. I live in a small town (very small, not Canon City) in the mountains and the snow this year, ten foot drifts and the snowplows get stuck and they have to come in with front loaders to dig out the snowplows.

So much fun!

Why Dayna! I'm surprised you would say that!! Me?? Cheat??? Never!!!!

DD, I don't mind snow nearly as much as the damn ice!! With the snow I can still get some traction once they plow, with the ice, after they plowed it just left a solid sheet of ice on the road!! Have I mentioned I hate ice???

I moved out here, in the out of the way reaches of upstate NY near the Berkshire mountains. It's beautiful, peaceful, lacks stuckup neighbors, and found some really good ones. My view outside my window is very similar to yours today, but I wouldn't trade it for anything else. It does have its price, later I will have to fire up the snowplow, along with the snowblower, and start reclaiming civilization back from Mother Nature, but what the hell, it's fun.

Feb 22 @ 4:18PM  
Surfin.....I'm in the "foothills" of the Ozark Mts here, and yeah it is beautiful.....but have I mentioned I hate snow and ice??? Guess I forgot to mention that part!!
Ok Dayna, I'll admit mine might go better on the snow and ice than yours will, and just as soon as I can dig it out and clean the driveway I'll be right over to get ya......Now where are those snow shoveling trolls that Billy promised me the other day???

Too Funny

Alaska is really having a mild winter and the rest of the US is covered in snow and ice.

LB, I dislike ice too, if I have to drive on it.
Snow is okay....well as long as I can sit in the house with some Bailey's and look at it

After this mild winter, I'm thinkin' I should get out while the gettin' is good.

Hmmm.....think I'll move to Hawaii...
NachoBaby

Feb 22 @ 5:02PM  
arright damnit.. I'll fire up the jeep and bring ya both over.. gawd.. squirrels gotta do all the freakin work. Ain't too many snowdrifts the jeep won't face.. and it's faced a fair few.. might make a long trip me only goin 35 mph the whole way in the snow though.. granny gear don't go much faster.
ladybootscooter

Feb 22 @ 5:07PM  
Thanks Sammy!!! But ya know I was jus thinkin.........if ya swing by an get Dayna first, when ya'll get here we can play in the snow and ice! I got some killer hills out back we can sled down! (too many boulders and rocks to ski!) might as well make the best of the mess! Just be sure to bring the cocoa!!!!

Well I don't drink peppermint schnapps at all and I prefer the real marshmallows

Okay, we won't make you drink it...more for us then!

Someone come shovel my porch...I need to go clean out my trunk because I am on an important mission this weekend and it requires as much space in my car as possible. I really don't relish the idea of wading through the snow to empty out the car.

Thanks Baby! Notice we were coming by to get you on the way to Nacho's!!?? But don't hold ya breath waiting on us to get there, cos with Dayna video taping Jeannie trying to get Steve to pull over they may never make it here!!

Sunny I didn't leave Dallas for nearly so romantic reasons! When I moved here back in 94 it was to be closer to my dad and get my son in a relatively crime free school before he started kindergarten. Gangs had taken over the schools where we lived and I wasn't about to send my baby there! Plus the cost of living was much cheaper here then. Man how things have changed in 14 yrs!!!
