Beaver:
DID the wood. Then sat back and watched the snow dancing down and thought about Snowflake Bentley. This is a good time for that wonderful story. Maybe Michelle...? I googled and there is a lot:
Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin is the children's book I have and I sat and read it again. Cannot give it up!

It intrigue's me that I can sit here: "I don't feel like... I'm too tired... Maybe it can wait..." But once I force myself to get started on bringing in the wood it becomes like the Sorcerer's Apprentice! "Where else can I put some?" So there is plenty of wood for a couple days and the tarp is not going to get frozen to anything AND the snow on top of the tarp will keep it from blowing off! I am safe and warm. And the sun has come out again, in time to go behind the hill. And snowflakes are still dancing!? Almost down to 5F, it is going to be a very cold night. The reason I back in to the drive is in case the car has trouble starting; I also have a booster pack, charged and handy. I DO plan, sometimes. Probably most of the time.
