the big snow

We came through it with minimal damage – a broken 50mm vent pipe, and slightly splayed spouting, both courtesy of the icing on the roof succumbing to gravity.

There were cars abandoned all along the highway, and we put up two car-loads here overnight, along with an already-here guest. There were mattresses all over the mezzanine, shades of summer camp, or perhaps the Waltons….

Good to do, though, and good to be able to do. The infrastructure wasn’t in trouble (water didn’t freeze, stacks of firewood, enough produce to feed the mob for days on end…..) and it was good to have to time to do nothing but socialise, talk, eat, play. It’s what we set the place up for.

Still and all, I don’t do snow willingly these days. It just slows down the projects…………
