With the snow and cold and 30mph winds, Mother Nature went to work making masterpieces. So for my birthday I got sunshine and beautiful artwork, so much fun, but so cold. I took pictures until my fingers would not work they were so cold. With out the wind blowing the house is pretty comfortable, just wish the bathrooms would thaw,lol.
When the weather is acting up like this I wonder just how the pioneers survived. Trying to imagine dealing with all this and living in a log home or in this area a Soddy! No stores to run to for supplies, no calling the gas company for more fuel. I believe that in this area of the country it was prairie so there were no trees to cut down for building or fuel. I am pretty sure that quite a bit of their clothing would have been wool, and if they hunted they would have had skins. Trying to learn all those skills so you could survive, amazing. I can get on the computer and order pretty much anything I want or need and have it delivered. To have moved from a city and then to live in the middle of no where, no neighbors to turn to. Just boggles my little mind.
I know the weather is acting up pretty much all over, so I wish you calm winds, warm temperatures and the love of friends and family. Barbara
