Ice on the trees! I hope it survives.

Ice on the whirligig!

Ice on the wind chime. How will it chime?

Ice on the satellite dish! No TV tonight! Do you think the exaust from the clothes drier will melt this ice?

But at least the power back is on and we will be warm!

No Wordless Wednesday

No heat, no power therefore no WW for me! But do we have ice! Ice on the trees, ice on the roads, ice on the whirligig, ice on the wind chimes, ice on the satellite dish, ice on the mail box!

Estimate to restore power: 7-10days!

MTM - Between the Lanes

This tranquil stream (actually it is called Currys Fork) runs in the land between the northbound and southbound lanes of the Interstate that runs through my town. It is in the area that Junosmom recently wrote about: Lifetime Learning: My Town Monday - Divided by Deer. It looks like the deer have just the habitat that they need!

MTM - a Small Insurance Agency

In my small town there is a small insurance agency. The agent drives a small car and I am sure he writes some small poicies.

Local Artist Strips!

It is truly the end of the holiday season! The local artist who decorated the windows at Karen's Bookbarn & Java Stop (my FAVORITE hangout) took all the decorations down yesterday. I am already looking forward to next season's art!

Where is Chris?

Where is Chris of ecuineform fame, our scribe in Hong Kong??

Did Regina take his pen away for the holidays?

Did Pommes the Wonder Cat eat his pen?

Did he leave his voluminous words in Hong Kong?

Did he lose his laptop?

Has he been posted to a forsaken outpost where there is no Internet service?

What will happen to the MTM posting sent to him? Will they fall into a Internet bottomless hole?
