As Dorothy said in The Wizard of Oz, "Eggs & water & buns! Oh my!"
And life returns to semi-normal for the Hills : )

I've suggested to John what I think might be a fun game only we'd need two cell phones & we don't even have one. The name of the game would be Surprise, & here's how it would be played. John would go down to the end of the driveway, between the gate & the street, with our trusty garden spade.

John walked to town & back yesterday (3 miles each way) to get us some bread & whatever else he could manage. Here he is starting out, bundled up in two pair of socks, two pair of pants, two shirts, coat, scarf, hat, gloves, & tennis shoes. The temp was 10 degrees with a wind chill of -1.

Don't know why I'm smiling ... lol! Oh wait a minute ... yes I do. Lots & lots of snow : ) I had to call to reschedule my dental appointment which was scheduled for today, but I needn't have bothered since the office ended up being closed all week. All the schools & colleges are closed as well. None of the calls I've made for snow removal have been returned. Ya just gotta love the people around here & the way they do things. Maybe The Devil's Playground was God's first attempt at creating hell. His practice run. Then He created the real hell. Anyway, I'm guessing the neighbors are all in the same boat as their driveways are unplowed as well. I don't mind being snowed in, but I must admit I wish I had some milk & eggs & clean water. The boiled water tastes a bit funky. Maybe I should add sugar to it ... lol! I could heat it, add sugar, maybe even throw in some dried leaves or something. Oh wait, that's tea! I do have plenty of tea : )
It is -2 degrees as I write this with a wind chill of -16. Yes, I'm smiling : )
We've been feeding the birds a few times during the day. They seem to eat the seeds as fast as we put them out there. I know the poor dears need lots of food during these cold temperatures to help keep them warm & energized. I took a few photos this morning. Here's Joe Cardinal surveying the lay of the land before plunging in for some good eats.
