Once in awhile, you have to hit Pause

We lucked out here at the SemiFarm during the recent snowpocalypse. The whole experience was a bit surreal, especially yesterday towards the end of the storm. Schools were closed as were the courts and many businesses. It was as if someone pushed the "pause" button on life here in the Midwest and, for once, I'm pretty grateful for that. I was in need of a long forced rest and, other than a few inches of ice on the driveway and a couple rather treacherous trips into town to attend to medical needs, we've fared pretty well. Lots of folks south of us (near Canton) are entirely without power. I can't imagine what that would be like and am forever thankful we skirted by with the results we did. No one was injured, nothing was broken, and today we get to begin again.  The dog is diggin' the permafrost that has formed over his fenced in portion of the backyard. He prances around so proud that he can walk on top of it all for a change instead of sinking in up to his doggie armpits, until he finds a slightly melted spot and crunches through with a surprised look on his face. It's slightly hilarious.

Are you shoveling out okay where you're at?
