Snow, snow, and more snow!

It continues to look like winter outside. (Which is awesome!) We've had ten straight days with snow covering the ground, and it has snowed every single one of those days. This is the first time anything like this has happened in the five Novembers that I've lived here. I wish it would become a regular occurrence!

Last year I began scheming about cross-country skiing. I think skiing would make more sense than snowshoeing does around here. I love to snowshoe, but we only have a handful of days per year with snow deep enough to justify it. I don't think that it's necessary to have as much snow to ski, so maybe I'll pick up an old used pair one of these days...

Hockey season is just around the corner. All of the ponds are iced over - we've only to wait until it's thick enough to hold a man!

Go Sabres!!!!

Mother ****ing Poachers

My neighbor knowingly trespassed on my farm this morning, drove two blocks of vineyard with an accomplice, and killed a deer on my property. If I could press charges, I would. Unfortunately, without recorded visual evidence, the cops won't do a damned thing. The most aggravating fact is that the asshole denied doing it, knowing that I lacked recorded evidence. Too bad cops won't investigate poaching, because the boot tracks (in the snow), shotgun shells, blood pool, and drag marks to the neighbor's pickup truck are pretty damn good evidence.

Can you tell that I'm a little ****ing angry???

Puppy at Play

The season's second snowfall. (A little bit is better than nada!)

Flowers in Bloom

The Christmas Cacti are beautiful right now. Both of the ones in this picture were started from cuttings in the autumn of 2004. The Jade was started from cuttings early in 2007. In the background is an Amaryllis that I purchased from Lowe's last year.

Great Post
