61 Degrees and Counting


It’s supposed to be 61 degrees here today. It was just Thursday night here that it got down to zero! What a turnaround. But Precious and I are ready!!!! We are so tired of being cold!

A Sight to Behold!


It’s been over two weeks since I’ve seen the ground. That’s a long time for snow to stay on the ground non-stop here. Usually, it snows, melts, snows, melts. There’s green grass sightings in between. The past couple of weeks, the temperatures were so consistently low, the snow just stayed and stayed and STAYED. But today, I think it’s leaving! It’s going to be 50. Then yes, we’re going to have another cold spell and some snow, but I don’t think too much.

It’s March. MARCH.

    It’s March! And I love March! Because it’s NOT FEBRUARY. February is always a nightmare around here. However, March isn’t perfect either despite its pretty sunshiny face. It’s about to be mud season! We’re melting.

    I’m alive and gettin’ fixed up here! It’s been really crazy busy between people here fixin’ stuff, and me FINALLY getting my car out and going shopping IN THE WORLD (!) for more fixin’ stuff. I will be back tomorrow with more details and regular posting! YAY!!!!!!!

  1. IMG_4762 February 25, 2015 - Help on the Way

    I had my various winter-related issues checked into yesterday.

    The hot water heater–I need a new heating element.

    The furnace–still a mystery. (There is no easy reset button, so that’s not it.) The pilot is automatic, but it has a lockout if there’s no gas. Once the gas was back, it didn’t respond. So…. This needs more investigation, but is not the most pressing … Continued…

    Precious knows the warmest spot in the house!

    It’s still freezing here, and I’m still struggling with some winter issues. Hot water is actually running in the kitchen again, but the water isn’t hot. I don’t understand. I flipped the breaker on the hot water heater a couple times, thinking that might help even though it didn’t appear tripped, but that has made no difference. … Continued…

  1. IMG_4751 February 23, 2015 - Tracks

    Dog tracks and people tracks. You don’t see any car tracks, do you? I managed to move my car back a little yesterday, so that at least it wasn’t in the middle of the driveway at the top, but that’s as far as it went before it got stuck again. My car said NO. It had been over a week since I’d been … Continued…

  1. IMAG3768x February 22, 2015 - Digging Out

    This is how far I got trying to get out of my driveway yesterday. I shoveled out the snow behind my car, cleaned my car off (mostly), and tried to back in toward the house so I could go down the driveway forward. (Going directly down backward seemed a little scary with snow on it.) I made it this far and got stuck. … Continued…

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
