Congratulations, Susan! No place like home!!

My home was invaded by noise ALL Morning. By noon I was ready to scream. It would have been better if I had gone elsewhere but with four large trucks parked along the road, engines running, I was doubtful about getting out AND where would I go? It started just as I was thinking about the lack of traffic on this road - the red truck, the blue truck, the white truck, the black car, the white car, the grey car and the snow plow/sander are the sum total of what I might see in a day. THEN: a sort of snowplow with HUGE tires, a truck with flat bed trailer, a truck with a crane - in front of house - and another truck down the road a couple hundred feet. The crane lifted huge chains off the flat bed and arranged them on the road and 3-4 men wrestled them onto the huge tires with the help of the crane truck and some noisy machine. They have left a short while ago and I am exhausted from the noise. NOW I need to go to the library. Then come back and re-collapse. I did clear the snow off the porch and car - about 4 inches and the weather - from minus 14C last night to plus 4 and drippy wet out there. Warm enough to work in studio but shoulder aches from snow removal. Not a very good day! I shall cancel it after trip to library - books are due.

The plow might not have made it up the hill without the chains.

Oh yeah! SRS! up to 80? plant potatoes!! HAH! and ho ho ho!! Pulling covers over head! Eating chocolate! Maybe stop in at Community Trust for a pep talk? I did write an article for Jane this am, and edited hers on home sharing, just a tiny bit.
