It will be another day of staying inside because the temperatures will not be above freezing – for the third day in a row. Jes and I did venture out yesterday, and it was bad. We attempted to visit friends living way out in the country to the north east of us. Hwy 7 was still snow packed. The country roads were more like ice packed due to the wind. As long as I just tootled along, we did fine. It was the hills that got me. We were way out in the middle of nowhere when I did not make it up one long hill and had to slide back down. At that point, I decided that it was not worth it. It was already late in the afternoon, and I did not want to be out on the ice after dark with the possibility of getting stuck. We turned around and headed home. Actually, Shay in his four-wheel drive truck came and got Jes, but I was a chicken. When I got home, Toby and I made a big pot of jambalaya. It was quite tasty.
Today, I would like to think of warmer times. This is one of my favorite photos of Aunt Jes and her niece.
Or how about this one taken at the end of the Hotter'n Hell Hundred?
