We got off lightly
Not the snow we were warned of
but boy, the wind was mighty...
It created lovely snow lines around the house.
Of course the power was out most of the day.
That's why a wood fire is so important in these parts.
On snowy, windy days my mind always goes to the first settlers
and even the war brides.
no automatic heating systems
no pumped water
no four wheel drive cars to pop down to a grocery store
Needle and thread would have been a luxury
and books too.
Women had no time for embroidery or reading
their days must have been spent just focussing on survival.
and survive they did
Women are amazing!
