This winter...

has been particularly hard on us. Lots of snow, lots of ice, and lots of cold.

The fence rail is now at my head. It's supposed to be 7' tall.
We've burned through a good bit of the wood pile already. We typically put up a year and a half each season. Looks like we'll use up last year's left-overs as well as this year's allotment.

We try to enjoy it though. We snowshoe with the dog every day. We put crampons on the boots and skate down the driveway. We snuggle up inside and work on projects that otherwise get ignored when the weather is good.
It's pretty, isn't it?
And we remind ourselves that we chose this location. Winter is a time for reflection, planning, and learning new things. 
Really pretty.
So I'll ignore the fact that we got another 6 inches of snow yesterday and just enjoy the new Inkle loom that Chris built for me. Odds are he wouldn't have had the time if the weather had been good...
