Hi and welcome to the blog today! The weather is moderating this week. Last week was very cold and snowy. As of today’s post, there is about 8″ of snow remaining on the ground. With the temperatures climbing, now is the time to get some pics up before it all melts later this week.
The project Monday was to start to shovel out the neighbor’s driveway. I made $20 for about 1/2 hour’s worth of intense work. I was delighted! That money comes in handy for future road trips. With warmer temps it should only take a few minutes to finish it up today. Easy money!
The next stop was to the park just a few miles away. The eagles were dining on fish along the shore and on the ice over the Wapsi River. I’m jealous! All the while I was noticing the low river level which will improve as this snow pack starts to melt. It was fun watching the meal in progress!
With a little luck things will thaw out in the next couple of weeks. It doesn’t look like a whole lot of fun having a picnic today… well, at least not with all that snow.
This picture was taken looking North-East from the edge of town. The view is spectacular from here. Though I sometimes have to adjust the contrast on photos, it was not the case on this picture. The blue sky was stunning.
The van is running well. I’m still cautious about taking it too far or pushing it right now… but am optimistic it will do well on the next trip. There is a museum I would like to see as well as visit buddy Johnnie. It will be a fun outing… That’s coming up in a couple of weeks. For now it’s back to doing some cleaning… starting with the van.
Take care and thanks for visiting today!
