11-27-2014 Journal – Happy Thanksgiving!   Leave a comment

It seems to me that 2014 has come and gone in the blink of an eye.  It was a busy year which probably accounts for that.  It’s Thanksgiving morning and I’m relaxing with a coffee and donut supplied by my better-half who was the early riser this morning.  It’s been quite some time since we’ve had a snow storm on Thanksgiving and I’m looking out the window at a winter wonderland.  I can’t believe she was up and out so early in this weather.  It’s one of those special holiday miracles I guess.

I spent time yesterday as the snow was accumulating trying to keep the driveway passable.  The snowblower was unveiled and got it’s first use this season and so did my back and arms.  I’m more than a little stiff today but that’s par for the course here in Maine.

The final snow numbers indicate between ten and twelve inches with most of the area suffering from downed tree limbs and power outages.  I’m not sure how we missed out on the loss of power but for a change we made it through the storm with only a few momentary lapses.  We have our issues with this snow and as you see so do the birds.  They’re scratching their way to the food as best they can.

The sun is shining and is being reflected off the snow and it’s amazing.  I can’t wait to get dressed and get out with my camera.  Everywhere you look there are beautiful pictures to be taken and I’m going to get my fair share.

I’d also like to send out a special thank you to the Saco town snowplow operator responsible for destroying my new mailbox during the first effing snow storm of the season.  I wish I knew who he was and where he lives.  I might just do a drive-by on his mailbox with a baseball bat. Freaking A-hole!!

For the first time in a while our Thanksgiving dinner will be just for two.  All of our family and friends are scattered about the country celebrating their holiday. We’ll have our meal this afternoon and be thankful for our good health and the blessing of a quiet day to properly enjoy it.

I do love the snow and I’m sure we’ll be seeing much more before this winter is over.  I hope you and yours are enjoying this holiday and appreciate your lives together.  Now we can rush headlong into the Christmas season and then the welcoming of 2015.
