This winter, I've been glad for two things especially. One, that Art had the backyard trees pruned back. We've had several wind storms and had the old, danging branches and leaning trunks been there, the garage may have been damaged, and we might have gone without power on cold days.
So, every time the wind blows, I'm glad for that decision.
Also, I'm glad we now have a snow blower. The last several years, we've had very little snow, but this year. Wow! Best year ever to have a snow blower. And here is Art. learning how to use it.
